MC Chris didn’t just suck in a bunch of helium and then step up to the mic – that’s actually how his voice sounds. Now that the 40-year-old nerdcore hip-hop pioneer has gotten over the “nerdcore” label, he’s more focused on his rap game than ever – when he isn’t changing his new baby’s diapers, that is. He might rap about some typical geeky stuff like comic books and Star Wars, but a lot of his beats are pretty dope, and the fact that he self-releases his discography in a harsh music economy earns a lot of respect. This Thursday, see, hear and feel MC Chris shake the walls of the Social in anticipation of his new album about Batman villains, Foes All Fall
, due out this fall.
