Dave Dice from Sun asked “Would you consider it good or bad if you understand all or most of the references in kill-dash-nine song?”. I checked it out, and I think I got them all. However it was hard to be sure, because I couldn’t stop laughing. It’s gangsta rap (complete with all the expletives) using geek language. Eventually I found my way to the rapper’s blog, and discovered that I’d encountered “nerdcore”. There is even a nerdcore compilation album, Rhyme Torrents, now up to six volumes (and an EP), all available through BitTorrent.
And as for the track Kill Dash Nine, here are the lyrics – definitely NSFW. Here’s a fairly clean ample:
My posse throws down like leaky bucket regulators;
I was coding shit in MIPS while you were playing Space Invaders.
With my finger on the trigger I run
Yo, this package is big, but MY package is bigger.
Time to fire up BitTorrent, I think.
