“I cut my salary, now I’m my own employer,” Memphis MC Adam WarRock rhymes at the close of “Shoulda Beens.” “If I was in it for the money I would have been a fucking lawyer.” His chosen niche is consciously nerdy hip-hop rich with references to Internet, graphic novel and video game culture, and he asserts several times on 2013 LP Middle of Nowhere that he’d bring in more than $20 a show if he, say, glorified violence in his rhymes. Yet rap has a respectable history of clever nerds, from Tribe Called Quest’s dweeby, shit-luck ode “8 Million Stories” to MF Doom’s King Geedorah alter ego (or, really, his entire catalog), and Adam WarRock’s assertions that “Magneto was right” continue this tradition nicely.
