Colorado rap star -- and yes he is a star -- YtCracker, is one of the most booked hip-hop artists out of the state. For some reason, the Nerdcore hip-hop music he does is in high demand. He's currently on a nationwide tour with other Nerdcore artists like MC Frontalot and MC Lars and, believe it or not, the shows have been sold out from city to city, according to Yt himself. And just this week, he was booked to open for the Wu-Tang Clan in San Francisco on February 2. Plus he'll be featured on their new website, WuChess.com, when it fully launches next year. Yes, that's right -- YtCracker just got the co-sign from the Wu. Check out a recent video featuring Yt (sporting the white cap and goatee) and MC Lars after the jump. -- Quibian Salazar-Moreno
