The MC Type
with Superfire, Art Vandelay & Notion
The MC Type is a Seattle native with a unique blend of crude humor and sharp rhyme skills. To label his music as comedy rap would not do justice to his capabilities in either field. Type can rap and sing at an amazingly high level, as well as write a cleaver song with fully developed musical structure and professional execution. What he is doing has never been done.
Best known for his material with indie rap group The Let Go, Type has toured the country 14 times. His group has charted as high as number 19 on CMJ for hip hop/rap and was picked up by over 210 public radio stations for regular rotation. Their lead single gained placement in MTV's The City, Season 1, Episode 10. A dynamic writer, Type is also a member of two other groups, Illegitimate Children (with Rhymesayers' Grieves) and Wuf Tix.
Type's strong suit is easily his extremely specific song topics. Best displayed in his popular videos, his humor shines on "Man Crush (No Homo)" and "After I Came," both directed by Griff J.
There is no performer around that can bring standup comedy and hip hop to the stage and fuse them together quite like Type. The songs and the videos are great, but the live show is what will really make you laugh.
