Freakyy "The Legacy" gives Nerdcore the showtune treatment

Freakky The Legacy's New Single "Popular" Involves Community!!!

NEW YORK, Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Nerdcore hiphop isn't the easiest genre to break into.  For every Random/Mega Ran, Adam WarRock, and DJ Frontalot, there are a host of aspiring rappers of mixed talent all trying to make a name for themselves.

Upcoming nerdcore Freakyy "The Legacy" is one nerdcore artist who deserves to succeed. Why?  Because his entire purpose for rapping is to give back to his community by teaching them that it's ok to be a nerd no matter what color your skin is.  Hardly groundbreaking stuff for a nerdcore artist, but given that Freakyy hails from Baltimore, MD it's a much needed message for inner city youth to hear.

Freakyy's first single Popular (a remix available for free on SoundCloud) samples no less a song than Wicked's wildly popular song... err... Popular and it's pretty damn catchy.  Putting Kristin Chenoweth's soprano vocals to a solid hip-hop beat is a bit of inspired musical genius, and I guarantee this song will be burrowed in your brain before the two minute mark. Much like how Random refuses to curse in his music, Freakyy is about as clean of a rapper as they come.  In a recent press release, Freakyy made his position on mainstream hip-hop abundantly clear:

"I believe that Broadway Musicals like "Wicked" helped to educate me and played a huge role in building my self esteem as a kid.  I don't support any artist whose music is detrimental to children. Teaching these kids that it's ok to disrespect women, deal/do drugs, twerk, and some more stuff. In my eyes, these artists are taking away from our communities, destroying our youth & messing up our culture."

The music video for Popular features children from Hagerstown, MD and made its  Official debut on VEVO Wednesday (11/21).  If you're interested in keeping an eye and your ears on Freakyy, follow him on Facebook or visit his website @ www.freakyythelegacy.com.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.
