Alex Trebek, the host of TV’s “Jeopardy,” recently referred to nerdcore rappers such as MC Chris as “losers” — albeit jokingly as part of his quickie repartee with contestants between rounds. Nerdcore is a hip-hop sub-genre that focuses on geeky delights such as science fiction, video games and comic books. MC Chris, who once voiced a giant spider named MC Pee-Pants on Adult Swim’s animated stoner comedy “Aqua Teen Hunger Force,” is regarded as “the king of nerd rap.” But his subject matter treads territory relatable by most hip-hop fans. MC Chris nerds it up on Tuesday, October 25, at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington, with support from MC Lars and Mega Ran.
