MC Frontalot, 'Final Boss' (Level Up)

7
Final Boss
Critical Mass
Label: Level Up

by Jon Young

Brooklyn's Damian Hess might be a leading exponent of nerdcore rap, but that doesn't mean he's clumsy or clueless. As MC Frontalot, he excels at zany, free-flowing rhymes set to chunky beats that recall the more light-hearted tracks of '80s hip-hoppers 3rd Bass and De La Soul. His repertoire here includes "Scare Goat," a zoological tall tale; "Wallflowers," a shout-out to shy guys; and "Tongue-Clucking Grammarian," inwhich he advises, "Check your punctuation." While Frontalot works hard to seem flippant, his devotion to the fine art of word-slinging is utterly serious.
