    I got to meet him at ComiCon last year. Totally decent guy, super nice. And the thing about his music is that it could very easily just be a novelty act but #1, he's very smart and is able to talk/rap about a lot of different topics which aren't really nerdy, just commentary on American culture and #2, he has really good production on his records with very capable collaborators.
