Born out of the internet, nerdcore hip-hop is a genre of music created by computer-obsessed geeks. In this documentary, filmmaker Negin Farsad explores the musical phenomenon in which rappers boast not about money and cars, but Magic: The Gathering and internet porn addiction. With appearances by such nerdcore mainstays as MC Frontalot and MC Chris, this film offers an entertaining look at a rapidly expanding musical subculture.
