ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
MC Frontalot fronts the most. Why, then, is he not dubbed MC Frontthemost? It is a mystery. As featured on NPR, in Wired, Newsweek, and XXL magazines, Front's sub-subgenre Nerdcore Hip-Hop is slowly but surely taking the whole world out for dinner and some nice conversation. Maybe a movie later. Maybe just park and look at the stars.

You can learn more than you ever wanted to know about MC Frontalot at his website, frontalot.com. There are stickers there. Shirts, glasses. Things to own and cherish. Also dozens of MP3s and little pictures that people have drawn. A variety of whimsical distractions to keep your afternoon or sleepless night permeated with glee. Visit immediately.

Also, regard CDBaby with kindness, for they have caused Front to be available from a ridiculously long list of online music vendors.

Not a bad follow-up album, frankly.
MC Frontalot hasn't quite blown "Nerdcore Rising" out of the water yet, but he's certainly making a name for himself with his continually clever, precise and unique sound.
This CD definitely won't disappoint lovers of the nerdcore genre.

Requiem

Dorktastic.
MC Frontalot's second album is more of the same from Nerdcore Rising, and by that I mean pure GENIUS. I Hate Your Blog is an excellent commentary of the state of our internet, being filled with mindless blogging, while It Is Pitch Black is a nice throwback to the interactive fiction games of the 1980's. All in all, another great album from the most frontinest MC around.

The best of some, but the better of himself
I don't remember how I heard of this guy before, I may have seen him on Beefy's MySpace page and decided to check out this guy with the name of MC Frontalot. With a name like that, I couldn't help but listen to it. Frontalot considers himself to be the creator and leader of the "nerdcore" movement. Granted, there have been a lot of nerds in hip-hop's recorded history, but the best leaders to follow are those who set their own rules and standards. Frontalot has different guidelines that no one knows but him, and by following them he is able to establish his own following without pressure from others who want him to fit in with any specific pigeonhole or hyperbole. What? Yeah!

Secrets From The Future (Level Up Records & Tapes) has him traveling into the future looking for information that may provide some kind of guidance for what's to come, whatever it may be. According to Frontalot, the internet will be dated and the language will be much more complex than it is now. In time, he goes on to tell the listening "I Hate Your Blog", "You Got Asperger's", and trying to find the mystery behind a "Bizarro Genius Baby". Frontalot may come off as a comedian, and perhaps it's appropriate since a lot of his songs are funny. There are jokes, but Frontalot isn't, and there's a point to everything, which he does through over-the-head words and rhymes, but not anything that will give you flashbacks of Sir Menelik.

One may look and hear these elements and go "oh, that's that backpacker shit" but if you get rid of the stereotypes that exists with that phrase, one tends to find a guy who celebrates his geek club membership without fear. He likes to pop in and out of character, and by doing that it's hard to tell which is the persona and which is the real him, and that's probably why it works so well. Take some of the best elements of Beck's hip-hop tracks with the confidence of Slug and the attitude of Edan, and you have hints of what Frontalot sounds like. He is his own man, and yet is he a front? Well, there's a real person behind the persona, so perhaps it's more about how ahead he is of his front.
