MC Frontalot (previously) is one of the OGs of nerdcore hiphop, bringing out huge crowds of fans for his music all over the world (I once caught him doing a show in North London at which a young man showed up in full Frontalot cosplay; I've also seen him perform for packed houses at Defcon).
Animator Chad Essley writes, "The new MC Frontalot (previously) nerdcore video is out for the 4th of July! Celebrate our nation's hostility toward the British crown by listening to Front rap about internet arguments over Free Software!"
Artist Chad Essey sez, "I'm auctioning some animation frames from the music video for Shudders I created for MC Frontalot's Question Bedtime album, with proceeds to the Electronic Frontier Foundation."
MC Frontalot has released the video for "Start Over" — the Little Red Riding Hood song from his album Question Bedtime. He writes, "I finally got the new video out! And I'm extremely happy with it. Director Alicia J. Rose did a bang-up job putting this project together when I came through Portland in December, marshaling the city's youngsters and more makeup than I've ever worn for anything."
A song based on "The Boy Who Left Home To Learn What Fear Was" — it's from the brilliant album Question Bedtime, which turns classic fairy tales into sinister nerdcore raps — for kids!
If you know anything about nerdcore superstar MC Frontalot, then you know he's not just about ice-cold flow and deep rhymes: he's also funny as hell. Now, with Question Bedtime, Frontalot brings us an album for kids, 40 minutes' of hip-hop fairy tales.
