MC Chris w/ Dr. Awkward, Jesse Dangerously and Tribe One
Adult Swim writer and voice-over artist MC Chris has regularly chastised critics who label his sci-fi-minded, novelty gangsta rap "nerdcore." Given how dense his songs are with references to role-playing games, Star Wars and geek memes like robots and ninjas, though, it's easy to see how Chris became synonymous with that subgenre. In 2011 the "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" contributor released his first children's album, Marshmellow Playground, before returning to more grown-up topics on its follow-up, Race Wars.
