Blackalicious

BlackaliciousIt's not common to find a rapper who can incorporate traditionally geeky topics smoothly. We geeks already have MC Frontalot, and he is certainly entertaining, but could there be others who can walk the fine line between cool and uncool?

Well, a duo called Blackalicious has taken up the challenge of being geeky... and surprisingly, they're also quite good! Inky Circus has more links, clips, and information if you want to check them out.

    I don’t consider Blackalicious to be that geeky — Frontalot, MC Paul Barman, or even Del the Funky Homosapien are geekier.

    Gift of Gab is well known for his verbal skills. He’s also a big christian.

    True, true – the more I listen to his songs the more I agree with you. He’s not quite a “traditional” (computer/nerd/math) geek. However, I do think that he is eclectic enough to be geeky in a broader independent-of-pop-culture sense.
