because being a nerd has nothing to do with skin color and you can be a nerd without being a dork.

i don't think nerd rap is a real thing, and EVEN if it was here is what the definition of it is considered to be:

"Hip hop based vocal music that attempts to express scientific, technological, or futuristic concepts using any style of lyricism as a vessel for it's message.

Nerd rap, as with all forms of self expression, is difficult to classify and is executed with varying degrees of excellence. Many artists have dabbled in nerd rap at one time or another without specifically meaning to and, vice-versa, many self proclaimed "nerd rappers" do not fit this definition."



that's exactly what gza and hex one do.

"Before space and time, thought produced a speck of light
It was infinitely hot, so extremely bright
Within the center of this great shining
It was massive energy and it was expanding in great timing
Within this fireball was all of space of every special place with information encased
Literally, a beginning
This cosmic clock was ticking and allowed space to flow while it was spinning
Everything we see around us
The sun, the moon, the stars, millions of worlds that astound us
The universe inside is hard to fathom
It was composed in a region small as a single atom
Less than one trillionth the size the point of a pen
Microscopic but on a macro level within
Unfurling this swirling cloud of light
A star city, a galaxy with all its might
Within the blinking of an eye expanding beyond comprehension
Within a fraction of a second a new dimension
At a marble size very unstable
In time it would come with a periodic table"

- GZA


this is a dude that loves chess, comic books, science, and kung-fu films. that's as nerdy as it gets.

well yeah, but i already gave examples of how some of it is and if GZA himself considers himself a nerd i don't see how you can really argue against it. liquid swords is nerdy as fuck, that's actually the major complaint i hear from people who don't like that album.

but like i said before, i don't think nerd rap actually exists. it's just a label people use to discredit artists that they don't like. nerdcore does and it's something completely seperate. there is no sound that defines "nerd rap", so the next thing to look at would be the actual content.

^Aside from that Alias dude, all the rest are a perfect example of Nerd Rap...

Other nerd rappers include Qwel, Sage Francis, Slug, Buck65, Gaysop Rock, Observe, etc.

wicked you've posted that exact same image and comment at least 4 times before.

are you just senile or do you think that if you post it 100 times it will eventually be true?

i swear the only reason you're so obsessed with this is because it's a painful reminder of how white you are and you want to distance yourself as far from it as possible

Such a subjective topic lulz. What defines 'nerd rap'? If it's the way someone dresses then yea all those Anticon dudes meet that criteria. If it's subject matter then it becomes even more complicated as would rapping about video games = nerd rap? How about video game beats cause then everyone on the Game Over comp is nerd rap. Slippery slope gents.

To answer OP's question, i don't consider either one nerd rap.

"Verses chatter out of my data box with facts
That my perfect patterns can paradox with aftershocks
Of split inconsistency from my scatter plot
Expand and catapult daggers to saturate your catalog
And lodge a catastrophic cannon ball in your abandoned lot (doc)
Documenting writtens my physics is cyber atomic
Designed to deposit paradigms from a scientist's office
Aligned and combined a Scientologist lion from Zion
With Mayan astrology defining this giant colossus
Colliding composites think you fly you can die in your cockpit
Denying can modify your diet this iron is toxic
Ironically thought to be a cross of a viable profit
Inside a sarcophagus a shrine and a bible of Gnostics
Narcissistic martyr deciphering pliable clauses
That travel like a typhonic tidal inside your metropolis
Goliath leviathan swallowing islands and continents
The prime audio novelist given rhythm within the planets"

"Peep the tactics in the realm of speech you lacking practice
I put words to sleep and use the canvas as the mattress
Inter-galactics stomp my feet and crack the atlas
The vocal beast known for eating planets like Galactus
I never been this high yet never smoked
Look at the sky for stars right beside the endless quotes
This menace wrote and if you see 'em nearer you could tell it's dope
Cause my reflectionís clearer than the mirrors on a telescope
I shine bright it's a sight to take a flight with me
You might just see them lights up in the sky tonight was me
We search for other types of life to find a tight MC
As nice as me who keeps it hype and rocks a mic with hyper speed
Now all these interstellar rappers say they scar victims
But yo we've been to plenty stars systems
And since these snakes babel I find it funny how these fake mammals
Havenít even achieved space travel word bond"


god damn, what a bunch of fuckin' nerds.
