Pop Musicians are a dime a dozen and for the most part are cranking out hits like factories crank out car parts or fast food chains crank out burgers. Wouldn’t it be nice to give ourselves some variety, particularly something that spoke to the culture of gamers? Nerdcore doesn’t pretend to be pop music, and that’s why it’s had success amongst people who are looking for something different. It’s music that’s unique, has a message, and a ton of unknown artists who are talented but unknown. I think it’s time we gave Nerdcore some more “air-time.”
Here are 6 Pop Musicians that should be replaced by Nerdcore Artists:
Nerdcore Artist: Dual Core
Replacing: New Boyz
While turning the “S” in boys to “Z” teeters dangerously close to 1337sp34K, this group of kids not legally old enough to buy Goldschlager, would be missed by only a handful of people, probably starting with Ray J and ending with the artists parents. Their number one song on iTunes speaks volumes about how great of a contribution the group has made to music:
It’s believed the lyrics were inspired by a combination of John Lennon’s music and a dream Ozzy Osbourne once had. Nerdcore rise-up…
Nerdcore Artist: Optimus Rhyme
Replacing: P Diddy/Puff Daddy/Daddy Puff/The guy from those cologne commercials
P Diddy is quite the anomaly. The Puff Daddy and the Family album is still one of my favorites to this day, and the epic Mo’ Money single with Mase (when was the last time you heard that guy’s name?) is still one of the most memorable music videos of the 90′s.
P Diddy is a brand, a commodity…he’s just been smart enough to control his brand and make sure he was the guy pulling the strings. His music has grown into more of a marketing tool, and he’s more replaceable than any musician not named Rebecca Black, albeit slightly less creative (at least she has her own original songs).
Nerdcore Artist: MC Chris
Replacing: Nicki Minaj
In the most befuddling mystery since the Egyptian pyramids, Nicki Minaj is one of the most successful musicians of all-time. That’s based off the fact that she is the only artist to have 7 songs in the billboard top 100 at the same time. Look at another fact, though…all but one of those were cameos to songs by: Ludacris, Wayne, Trey Songz, Usher, Sean Kingston, and Jay Sean.
Can she survive on her own? Probably. Should we have to continually keep listening to find out. Here’s hoping we don’t have to…
Nerdcore Artist: YT Cracker
I bet you thought I was going to recommend replacing “Eminem” didn’t you? But that would have been, well, ridiculous. Eminem speaks his mind and doesn’t really care what other people think…you’d have to think that his enormous success is tied directly to fan demand to experience real artists…but the executives making the decisions must think otherwise.
But, I digress, we’re replacing Jerimih, the man who likes birthday sex and wants you down on him. He’s wildly popular, drives fancy cars and is a star. Hey I’m sold…the question is, how many more singles will it take to know that Jermih is a filthy rich star, until we stop caring?
Painfully enough, we’re still finding out.
Nerdcore Artist: Beefy
I remember T-Pain’s debut single “I’m Sprung.” A song dedicated to his wife, which actually offered some unique insight into the conflicting nature of (dare I say it) love.
But now, T-Pain is officially that guy from the I’m on a Boat music video who apparently really likes money (like everyone else) and all he does is win, win, win…no matter what (like Charlie Sheen). He’d be easy to replace–lose the autotune and make him put 5 grand in a jar everytime he says the word money in a song and he’d be making beats for Kei$$a this time next week.
Nerdcore Artist: MC Frontalot
He is Will. Not Will Smith. The one guy from the Black Eye Peas that actually speaks. He’s become one of the most prominent producers/beat makers in the music industry. He’s a God amongst girls running on their treadmills, looking for that extra boost to get them going (try this if you really want to go big) but to anyone looking for actual music, he’ just another dude creating filler that rocks the hell out of a half-time show, but doesn’t really do it for anybody looking for a jolt of motivation or something that they can relate to (that’s what music is supposed to do, remember).
Stepped up in the party like my name was “that b***h”.
All these haters mad because I’m so established.
They know I’m a beast, yeah I’m a f**king savage
Haters you can kill yourself.
And so let it be written, let it be told…
But don’t take my word for it, check out the video playlist bellow and let me know if you think the world is ready for more Nerdcore.
