It takes WNYC to introduce me to this?!? Apparently, there's a music genre called Nerdcore hip hop [Wikipedia]. Some songs: "Message No. 419" (about Nigerian spam), "Fett's Vette" (obvious), and "Entropy" (from MC Hawking [Wikipedia], who back in January I thought was merely a one-off joke). This might get on my nerves eventually, but it's pretty damn funny right now.

Check out MC Hawking and the anti-fundamentalist video "What We Need More Of Is Science" and MC Frontalot who was interviewed on WNYC. Playing the HTML geek, he suggested that his Behind the Music story would speak of his "tragic open end-bracket."
