RT9 is now out! 3 discs filled with possibly new Nerdcore tracks that may get you singing along or moving on to the next song. It's been a crazy year and it's that time for Nerdcore folk of RT to rise up and give us a preview of what's to come. We got artists like The Ranger, MC Loki, Fatty Goodness, EPP, Tongue Mother, Neally & DJ Dig Dug, and plenty of other fellow nerds/geeks.
Now I enjoyed all 3 discs pretty well. The first disc was my personal favorite but disc 2 and disc 3 had their shining moments as well. The ones on disc 1 that caught my eye were "That's so Nerdcore" by MC Loki, "Bromantic Comedy" by Da Silky Slimz, and "IMA GOOF" by EPP (ft Rappy Mcrapperson, ZombieK, and Shamus Oddish). Having "That's so Nerdcore" was a great way to open up to the first track of RT9. It has a hook that you'll end up singing (rapping) to yourself as you play DnD near a blacklight or have a cypher online. MC Loki has my thanks for giving me a track that is on constant play in my head. The next track that caught my, and I'm sure it will catch yours, is "Bromantic Comedy". Fatty Goodness and Cumfucius are the masterminds behind Da Silky Slimz and this track to me truely stands out! If you were ever in search of a song that could explain the deep connection you may feel towards your "bro"...but really you're not gay...then this song is for you. With a catchy beat, hilarous lyrics, with a questionable ending has made this song the cat's pajamas! Now lastly, "IMA GOOF" by EPP (Emergency Pizza Party). This song is silly, which is why I absolutely adore it. I will say my favorite part is the chorus, that really kept the song together and going.
Now on to disc 2. Now my favorites here are "Go With the Flow" by The Ranger (ft Kabuto the Python and Fatty Goodness), "Friendly-Fire" by TYT (ft Quartz Relic), and "Firebrand" by Fatty Goodness. "Go With the Flow" was great to listen to. Legit rappers, good flow, and a very interesting beat. Though there isn't a hook, it doesn't need one! It's an example of what a good beat can do to a track. Now if you love shooter-games, then you should definitely listen to "Friendly-Fire" by TYT (ft. Quartz Relic). This song though I wasn't sure on at first eventually grew on me. It raps on exactly what it's called, friendly-fire! So if you gamers out there, and I'm assuming most, have played a game where you've been shot at by your own team (or vice versa) then this is a track to check out. My dear Fatty Goodness, you are just all over RT9 (almost). This artist shows what he has to offer and it's definitely something that perks our interest. "Firebrand" does nothing but gets me pumped for whats to come. I'm keeping my eye out for more from him; His talent can only get better and better.
Although disc 3 was my least favorite, there were a couple that caught my interest. The first one I have to point out is "Ivory Tower(Untested Methods Remix)" by The Bloodclan. I love this beat! It's fantastic and definitely sets the mood of the track. Creepy? Check. Madness? Check. Twas a pleasure to listen to. Lastly, "WYSIWYG (DV's funkified Mix)" by OG Don Vito (ft. Epic-1, Krhym3.574r.0n3, and Lloyd Popp). Crazy mix! but I dig it. All the artists showed what they can do in this track, and they are some of the best. Featuring some of my favorite artists along with an awesome beat it was a good choice for it to be one of the last tracks of RT9.
Nerdcore at it's highs and some lows, it's a definitely worth it. Various artists banding together to create a great compilation and it's free! Download this 3 discs filled with keyboard cats, goomba stomping, goofs and a dash of bromance. Here they are!
