http://www.nursehella.bandcamp.com/http://WWW.NURSEHELLA.COM/http://www.twitter.com/nursehellahttp://www.soundcloud.com/nursehellahttp://www.youtube.com/apocolisp When hiphop's then-newest niche genre "Nerdcore" gained moderate attention a few years ago, Hella used the buzz as a launchpad for her own career as an emcee. Little did she know along the way she'd end up being lauded as one of the only two females in the Second-Wave of artists and among the names of those who are synonymous as the genre's pioneers. Featured in two documentaries, "Nerdcore For Life" and "Nerdcore Rising" her presence is more than just a detail of the birth of a hiphop subgenre, rather she became a figure woven into a greater story - one of a geek-nerd culture's coming of age - and likewise their avowal to still never grow up.
