MC Lars

MC Lars (real name: Andrew Nielsen) began making hip-hop-based tapes while still a kid, but was sidetracked from rap by such traditionally important issues to teenagers as playing guitar in a punk band and getting accepted to a college. Nielsen went to Stanford, and then did an exchange stint at Oxford, but all the while he was fiddling with desktop productions and developing his quirky, pop culture-savvy style. Boisterous live gigs and word of mouth built buzz for Lars' home studio raps (influences: everything from Atom & His Package and Weird Al Yankovic to KRS-One and the Beastie Boys). Then London imprint Truck Records issued a Lars full-length called Radio Pet Fencing in 2003, and the MC followed that with U.S. and U.K. tour dates. While the entirety of Fencing was recorded on his computer, the summer 2004 Side Cho EP Laptop -- while still charmingly simplistic -- was a comparatively grander production, with samples of notable rockers (Piebald, Brand New) and a stronger melodic sense. Cuts like "iGeneration" and "Signing Emo" were hits with downloaders and mtvU viewers, and MC Lars did live dates with groups like Gym Class Heroes and Bowling for Soup through spring 2005. The full-length The Graduate -- as MC Lars could hence call himself a Stanford alum -- appeared in March 2006; a string of U.K. shows followed the next month. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However, if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on atleast 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the s reen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works

He's so down to earth as a person too. Just try approaching him at a concert. He'll gladly chat and he's such a cool and hilarious dude. Can't beat MC Lars!

Seriously, you are the best man, the only person that can make me laugh and think thats totally me, and then really make me emotional then next song. Excellent bro.

Met him when he came through with mc chris and YTCracker on the Hellraiser tour. Simply one of the nicest people I've met, especially one with any amount of celebrity whatsoever. With any luck, he'll keep giving us thoughtful, well-written poetry over beats for a while longer.

I thought Hip-hop was crap. After listening to MC Lars, I know realize that it was just mainstream hip-hop that was terrible.

Lars is amazing.

Amen!

Got to see Lars live and hang out with him before the show. He's awesome on stage, and sincere and witty off stage. Liked him immediately, got all his CDs that night. This is real hip-hop worth listening to!

I was fortunate enough to catch him live, he puts on a great show, both in his music and his banter.

And I got to mosh with him during a breakdown in "Hot Topic is not Punk Rock", that was awesome.
Report as inappropriate
If you ever get a chance to catch him live, I recommend it. My first experience with him was at a Bowling For Soup concert my wife dragged me to. Shame that his style and humor was lost on most of the crowd, but I ended up having a great conversation with him after the show, and bought some of his merchandise and his Laptop cd. Been a huge fan ever since.
