M.C. Chris is a rapper from Libertyville, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. He was one of the first rappers to focus solely on nerd life, rapping about Star Wars, Harry Potter, ninjas and unrequited love, instead of the usual hip hop fare. M.C. got his start as an animator on many of the shows you’ve see on Adult Swim. He was writer, actor, songwriter and lead animator for shows like Sealab 2021, The Brak Show, Space Ghost Coast to Coast and Aqua Teen Hunger Force. He has voiced characters on several Adult Swim pilots such as Welcome to Eltingville, Cheyenne Cinnamon, Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell and Tight Bros. He was also a producer of on air content for over a year before leaving Williams Street to pursue a career in music.
M.C. has since released seventeen albums and has crossed America countless times, touring as a headliner as well as opening for bands like Pinback, Reggie and the Full Effect and Ninja Sex Party. He's collaborated with Talib Kweli, Andrew WK, Cee-Lo, Childish Gambino and Gwar. He’s performed at SXSW, PAX, Fun Fun Fest, Bamboozle, Warped Tour, GwarBQ, The Gathering, Comicon, Dragoncon and countless others conventions. His music has been featured in Kevin Smith’s “Zak and Miri Make a Porno," “Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie" and he has composed several themes for Smith’s Smodcast podcast network. M.C.’s song “Hoodie Ninja" was featured in both a national Honda commercial and America's Funniest Home Videos. Other songs have been featured in Comedy Central’s “Broad City" and Fox's “So You Think You Can Dance?" M.C. most recently guest starred on a punk compilation album dedicated to Dr. Demento and made a cameo on Gwar’s latest album “The Blood of Gods.”
M.C. raises money to fight Cystic Fibrosis. Inspired by his nephew who has CF, mc chris and his fans have raised over $165,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation through eBay sales and donations collected at live shows.
M.C kickstarted “The M.C. Chris Cartoon" an animated extension of the skit universe featured on his records. Thanks to donations from his fans, he raised over $60,000 and produced a six minute pilot presentation with the animation company Titmouse Inc.
For the past two years, every album M.C. has released has charted in the top ten on Billboard. A new album is scheduled to be release sometime in 2018. M.C. lives in Los Angeles with his wife and three year old.
MC Frontalot created the term "nerdcore hip-hop" in 2000 to describe his sad little enterprise. It has since grown into a worldwide phenomenon with hundreds of practitioners, various national and international touring artists, two feature documentaries, and blah blah blah. Know where would be a good place to look up information about Front and nerdcore? THE INTERNET. You're soaking in it!
Schaffer the Darklord (or STD) is a New York City-based rapper and comedian with material best-suited for brainy and/or drug-addled audiences. With manic energy, verbose vocabulary and cartoonishly commanding stage presence, STD skewers such topics as religious zombies, sci-fi sex fantasies, grammar snobbery and obsessive cat-enthusiasts. Imagine a Frankenstein-esque monster assembled from equal parts Bill Hicks, Eminem, Prince, Ozzy Osbourne and Darth Vader, stitched together inside the shell of a maniacal heavy metal ex-patriot. STD has released three full-length albums, and when he's not on the road, he guest hosts countless burlesque events. He also co-produces and co-hosts his own nerdy, themed production, EPIC WIN Burlesque. You are advised to witness his damned act before his hedonistic rock-n-roll lifestyle destroys him.
