"Nerdcore Rising" is a documentary that uncovers a new wave of hip-hop called nerdcore. The film follows the godfather of the genre, MC Frontalot, on his first national tour. Frontalot and band interact with fans across the country: a special breed of loyal and super smart dorks who can't get enough of the Front, making nerdcore hip hop a fascinating and endearingly comedic sociological phenomenon. Commentary from industry notables like Weird Al Yankovic, Prince Paul, and Jello Biafra pepper the film to examine the legitimacy of nerdcore as a subgenre of hip hop, the larger rise of geek culture, and the desperation of one MC who's trying to achieve nerd stardom.
