Part of a supremely talented class of rising Bay Area artists, Erk Tha Jerk burst onto the local scene with “Right Here,” one of the most-played songs on KMEL in 2009; the song subsequently broke into Billboard Magazine’s Hot 100 Hip-Hop/R&B charts, was added to rotation on MTV Jams, and has amassed hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube. Now releasing his debut Nerd’s Eye View as part of a joint venture with SMC Recordings and his own label Red Planet Music Group, Erk, who is featured in XXL Magazine’s Show & Prove, shows great range; the Richmond, California native has spent time in higher education, holding down 9 to 5’s, and holding down corners, and the multitude and variety of those experiences are reflected throughout the album. Erk also sets himself apart from the rest of the pack by handling not only the production for half of the album but also for producing his own music videos.
