Even More Geeksta Rap
from the make-it-stop... dept
Who knew there was such a market for geek-inspired hip hop? While the SJ Merc seems to think they’ve found the first such instance of “geeksta rap” from an engineer trying to get kids into science and engineering, it seems like it’s just the latest in a long series of similar offerings. A few years ago we wrote about a compilation of songs about spam which included everyone’s favorite hip hop song about 419 scams, Urgent Business Relationship by MC Frontalot (other songs on the compilation available here). Then, about a year ago, some geeks came up with a bit of usability hiphop, suggesting that there was an “east coast/west coast” battle going on in the web usability world. Apparently, extreme geekiness and hiphop go together. Who knew? Of course, at least the other examples we had seemed to be poking fun at the idea. It looks like this latest example is taking itself a bit more seriously.
