Nothing compliments a great game like great music. One of the best ways to extend your enjoyment of a particular game is through listening to its music, listening to music based on it, or listening to artists sing about it. Enter: Nerdcore rap. Artists with an unashamed and unapologetic love for video games share their passion with us in what is often times rap lyrics over a remixed 8-bit beat. But not all nerdcore rappers rap about video games. Any geeky topic will do.
Showcased for you here are my five favorite nerd rap artists. While not all of them rap over 8 bit tracks, they all do video game related songs and the lyrics are usually shout outs to nerd culture whether it be video games, computers, hacking, Dungeons and Dragons, or some other aspect of what makes geeks awesome.
