Last week something happened on Jeopardy that I haven't gotten around to talking about yet. In one of those awkward Alex Trebek gets to know the contestants segments Susan Cole professed her love of Nerdcore Hip Hop (swoon). After describing what Nerdcore was and who it was for Alex Trebek called everyone involved losers. Or maybe he just called the rappers losers, I don't know, sort of seems like splitting hairs.
Susan Cole and Trebek shared a chuckle and the earth kept on turning. There were a couple short think pieces on the internet and a bunch of tweets of the "what the hell Trebek?" variety, but my guess is if you're not actively following the Nerdcore scene you might have missed all the hubbub.
Luckily for you I'm very much actively following the Nerdcore scene. Over the weekend MC Frontalot, Schaffer the Darklord, Beefy, MC Hawking, Richie Branson, Mikal kHill, Sammus, YTCracker, Dual Core, Jesse Dangerously, MC Lars, Mega Ran, & Dr. Awkward put together the best diss track you'll ever hear. Or at least it's the best diss track directed squarely at an elderly Canadian trivia show host. It's incredibly catchy.
Also whatever Hotel YTCracker is staying at looks dope. I want to go on vacation. Spending a three day weekend in the Tri-Cities doesn't count.
