SCHED* SXSW 2011 has ended
avatar for Beefy


Hailing from the Northwest, Beefy is a massive presence in the nerdcore hip-hop scene. Since 2005, Beefy has been pushing his positive, pop culture influenced message worldwide, beginning with his debut The Whitesican EP. Never afraid to make references to X-Men comic books or video game vixens, Beefy has also found a way to create his own style backed by pop, rock, and hard powered rap production.

Beefy has performed throughout the Northwest, focusing mainly in the Seattle since first opening for Optimus Rhyme in early 2007. Since then Beefy has performed in cities such as Los Angeles, Portland, Chicago, Orlando, San Francisco, and Amsterdam. Beef has done shows and tracks with fellow nerd rappers mc chris, MC Frontalot, MC Lars, ytcracker, Schaffer The Darklord, and Doctor Popular and was featured on the Rondo Brother’s The Foreign Globester along with Motion Man, K.Flay, and MC Lars. For his efforts, Beefy was featured in two documentaries; Nerdcore For Life directed by Dan Lamoureux and Nerdcore Rising directed by Negin Farsad which premiered at SXSW 2008.

When not writing and recording, you may catch Beefy on Xbox Live, posting new episodes of Just Another Lazy Podcast, or hanging with his girlfriend Chandra and their 3 year old girl fondly known as “Nugget.” Beefy’s latest album With Sprinkles was released in May of 2010 and has since been called “A strong offering from the crowned prince of Nerdcore” and “the frosting on the cake of life.” He is currently hard at work on his fourth studio album as well as a new project with his band The Grammar Club alongside long time collaborator Shael Riley.
