Expect A New MC Lars Album This Year!
Lars took to facebook this week to spread some love and confirm that fans can expect a new album this year. There’s no clue as to exactly when but we’ll report as soon as we know.
Adam Warrock + Mikal kHill + Tribe One
New Mixtape EP Dropping Tomorrow
Judging from the artwork Warrock posted on twitter (see left – probably not the final cover) it’ll be a Magic The Gathering themed release.
Tribe One and Warrock more commonly team up on comics related tracks but also produced the superb Paper Cutters & Dangling Headphones back in 2011.

Finally, and technically not Nerdcore, but most likely of interest to fans of the genre – Mac Lethal dropped this insane alphabet rap earlier in the week. Lethal is known for his fast delivery but this effort speeds up to a mind-blowing tempo. Enjoy.
