NASA commissions nerdcore rap track

How’s this for nerdcore? At the request of NASA, London-based rapper the Metro recently recorded a track devoted entirely to astrobiology, in order to make the tricky subject more easy to understand. So how’d it feel to be essentially dubbed the nerdiest rapper in the land? “Being commissioned by NASA to produce the ‘Astrology Rap’ was a great compliment,” says Metro.

Check out the video below. I can’t help but think that this is something my best friend and I could have cooked up in our youth (she’s literally an astrophysics genius; I’m a nerdcore rap alum).
