Aside from MC Chris, I had not known that such a thing existed.

Does that mean I've "out geeked" you?
Or am I just that willing to publicly out myself as a geek? wink

Growing up I was really big into dork pop (like They Might Be Giants, Primus, and 'Weird' Al Yankovic) as well as 90's hiphop producers (Dan the Automator, Prince Paul, Del the Funkee Homosapien, Kool Keith, Ill Bill, et cetera) so 'nerdcore' piqued my interest almost immediately.

And this may very well just be my own perspective on things, but... sadly, I feel that the whole "nerdcore" scene has already run its course and imploded -- probably due to lack of a tangible direction for the genre to grow. Aside from the perennial mc chris, a lot of the other artists tend to come and go so quickly they never get much of a following. Those who made a name for themselves have had to diversify into other endeavors to pay their rent (as DIY means you pretty much put any money you make into producing the NEXT album).

That being said, MC Lars was probably my first exposure to nerdcore so despite his shows being not much more than your standard "laptop rap" affair he still holds a special place in my heart. MC Frontalot is probably the most entertaining I've seen. If you haven't watched the "Nerdcore Rising" documentary, I'd highly recommend it as it gives a pretty candid insight into how much work it takes trying to stay relevant when pretty much your entire fanbase exists on the internet. A few other names to throw out there (in no particular order) -- YTCracker, MC Hawking, MC Fibonacci Sequence, Optimus Rhyme.

But I just haven't seen much coming out of that genre any more these days. If you've come across any artists that are active (outside of posting the occasional YouTube video), please do point them my way though. I haven't given up hope on the genre just quite yet.

tldr; yes, i too am a fan of the nerdcore genre of rap music.

This guy found my car nifty enough to leave his demo tucked into my windshield:­

I really liked it, nerdy in a darling way. :-)
