MC Chris

High-pitched and hidden behind his ever-present low-slung black baseball cap, MC Chris is the comic-loving, videogame-playing antithesis to the common conception of rap music. From his beginnings in Cartoon Network’s late-night programming, most notably as MC P Pants in stoner favorite Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Chris’s natural comedic leanings and lightning-fast flow paved the way for the cult “nerdcore” following, with the Star Wars-centric “Fett’s Vette”--a taste of what collaboration between Mickey Avalon and George Lucas might sound like-- and the “nerd girl” anthem titled, well, “Nrrrd Grrrl.” Despite the lightweight subject matter, MC Chris is a legitimately sharp rapper--albeit one who is perfectly content goofing around over a Casio synth beat. With MC Lars, Math The Band. NICK FELDMAN
