anyone out there a hip hop nerd?

i find its a very delicate balance of lifestyles. if you are unsure of what this is.. ill try to explain.

i grew up in a very "not so nice" part of town. grew up listening to hip hop (and by hip hop i dont mean that crap you hear on the radio. thats not hip hop. thats commercial BS Rap. there is a HUGE difference)
, unfortunately grew up smoking ...uhh stuff....

did some mural grafitti and such. but always kept a straight head on my shoulders...graduated on time, never got busted doing something stupid, served in the miliary got a bachelors degree, and have been doing web for about 10 years.

i know my web, networking, languages and such, but still love hip hop... in California (if anyone cares) is a group called Living Legends... underground hip hop at its finest.

i spend some of my time writing rhymes and such, and try to incorporate my technical background into them. as some may know the recent movement of nerd rap is on the rise....

so just a topic i felt like bringing to the forefront.

The group I'm involved with is attempting to one of our very original songs and remaking it as a hip-hop release. Personally, I don't like the style so much, probably because most of what I've heard is mainstream media - Aesop Rock has one song that I really like, Lucy.

At any rate, I'm useless when it comes to trying to emulate the style of the hip hop genre. In fact everything I sing (regardless of genre) sounds exactly the same, horrible. But I've got rhythm, and I've got our lead singer listening to Lucy today. If we get anywhere with this song I'll post a link.

The Living Legends sound OK at a first listen, but Hip Hop is still not my cup of tea. I'm listening to "Love You Like This" right now and... it's interesting that the scratching guitar sound is very much like one we've used in a song called Afterbirth [youtube.com]. Be warned - the song itself is far from Hip Hop :)

Didn't Lou Reed do a song called "Plain Brown Rapper"? Couldn't find it. But I found THIS [youtube.com]. He sorta raps on this one (like he does on all his songs). ;)

Aesop Rock is sick too.. everyone once in a while he drops some "technical" lyrics into his tracks. If you can dig Living Legends, do a youtube search for Grouch & ZionI you will be pleasantly pleased.

No i havent put any of my lyrics to music yet... i do alot of flow type rhymes off of instrumental beats and such i find on the web. it takes time to sit down and make a nice beat that doesnt sound like it was done in 30 minutes....

anyone know of some good software to make good beats? ive tried apps like fruityloops, but didnt like its interface.

There is a guy called the SEO rapper... he has a ton of good stuff on YouTube. I think I even posted his CSS rap on here once a while back.

nice. SEO Rapper was pretty damn good... that just motivated me to get going on some tracks. he had good lyrics but the voice was very monotone.. needed to adjust and shift his voice... i just got kind of lost in the lyrics.

overall pretty good. i cant complain since i havent done anything yet .... sooo... i think my flows involve more of an all around technoligical background...

drop some lyrics about Active Directory and Networking Technology

How is it that a thread about rapping nerds (nerdcore) does not mention MC Frontalot, the fellow who practically created the genre?

Nor Rhyme Torrents, which has (quite literally) gigabytes of nerdcore--some good, some bad, some hilariously awful, but all of it super-nerdy.

It's like discussing the internet without mentioning Al Gore! ;)

If you're interested in the LHC (Large Hadron Collider [webmasterworld.com] at CERN, then you might enjoy the Large Hadron Rap [youtube.com] which explains the physics surprisingly well!
