MC Frontalot, aka Damian Hess, makes a living rapping about data encryption, rare diseases, video games and the nerd life. When we stopped by his Brooklyn apartment, Frontalot described Nerdcore, his name for the genre, as "the inversion of the shame of geekery... into pride." Dr. Awkward, a California-based nerdcore rapper, says that people assume nerd rap is a joke: "But it's not really about the juxtaposition of those two worlds -- nerdiness and hip-hop -- it just happens to be nerds expressing themselves through hip-hop."
