Don't miss it!
Tonight we're hosting one of our fave events: NERD RAP!!!! Here's the scoop:
NEEEERRRRRDDDDDSSS! Bring that beat back!! From the early nerdcore albums of MC Frontalot to the Epic Rap Battles of History and the entire careers of the Lonely Island and Childish Gambino, rapping nerds have become major players in pop culture. Now it’s your turn to show us what you’ve got, in the sixth annual Fantastic Fest Nerd Rap Throwdown! And you can't have a rap war without an epic soundtrack, so DJ NO KID$ will be back wranglin' wax, poppin' the propers on the platters for the party poindexters.
What is Nerd Rap? Simply put, it’s any hip hop beat paired with an emcee (or multiple microphone fiends) rapping about geek culture. Now in our sixth year, the Nerd Rap showdown will be back at the new Highball again, and we’re keeping the competition and the audience open to the general public and Fantastic Fest badgeholders alike!
