    The Adventures of Duane and BrandO
    8-bit Hiphop
    [​IMG]

    Duane and Brand0 are the definition of NERD based GEEK hip-hop! Their albums are a parody of 8-bit gaming and silly dialogue. The EP of Doom is a free download and I recommend real hip-hop lovers give it play.

    They re-united, and they're doing live shows now. Last one was last week. Next one is in June.

    I used to be a big fan and I waited forever for the LP and then I got it and everything was good and then I don't like much and my interest for them fades away.

    Love Nerdcore, gonna check these guys out.

    The king, MC frontalot is still head of my playlist. For those of you who haven't heard him, and are into nerdcore, he is the spear head of nerdcore.

    Jesse Dangerusly, also is great, although nerdy, not always true nerdcore. A great hip hop artist still.

    I've had MadHatter's album 8-Bit Bullshit around for a while but never really listened to it. Been meaning to get some of DnB's stuff for a little while now.

    I would have readily paid for this. They are the only people to have done nerd rap right.

    i didn't think such a dorky post could be made about duane and brando
    guess i was wrong

    "NERD-based GEEK hip hop" is probably the most redundant term i've ever heard, another world




    and I'll be honest, I love hip-hop as a genre and I really, really can't stand Duane and Brando. They sound like pissed-off kids in front of a bunch of guitar riffs, "fuck" thrown here and there. Their Earthbound project sounded pretty great - really, if they pulled that off I think I'd have some more respect for them.

    I never did quite figure out why MegaMan/Rockman was so popular in the USA, it was just about above average imho...From memory, the series had hardly any/if at all marketing until the snes days over here...
