MC Frontalot (Audio) Interview

MC Frontalot is the Godfather of Nerdcore Hip Hop. Spanning a 15 year career, this influential rapper has left his mark on numerous artists in the realm of music. I decided to take a different approach for this interview. Instead of talking about nerdcore, ad nauseam, we dove into the personal side of Damien Hess. Want to learn about his zombie musical, his favorite MF Doom albums, or why Psychonauts is a top ten game for him? This is the interview for you. Also, we talk about his upcoming album, Net Split or, the Fathomless Heartbreak of Online Itself. Put this on in the background and treat it like a podcast. Enjoy.
