Recently caught up with the Melbourne vet Dvate! Check it here
Had the chance to chat to Rainman this week about his New release ‘Bigger Pictures’ and a few other bits and pieces. Chekitouuuut here yo!
So it's a Monday night...
You’ve just dropped an album that’s set to be a classic, and you have to wake up at sparrows fart for work in the morning; what do you do? Well if your Maundz you get drunk as fuck in the studio, throw together a sample mix of the album, and try and narrate the tracks in between slurs and belching… What more can I say that he already hasn’t? Jump the fuck on this shit,...
MAUNDZ - MAUNDZILLA
Excuse me while I shit my pants here for a second. Right, done… For now. This has to be one of the fucking meanest tracks to ever emerge from Australia, let alone the pits of Preston. It will make children cry blood and animals eat their young - be afraid, be very afriad. Taken from Maundz - Zero (dropping on the 25th of May)
It's been a minute (Fuck Richard Kingsmill and his...
Sorry for the gap in posts; I’ve been a slack motherfucker over the last few, unmotivated + doing interviews and other internet shit (keep an eye peeled for two or three dropping over the next few weeks) BUT I’m back at this very moment with an enraged mind, telling you that as I sit here, fingers to black plastic keyboard writing this, we’ve fallen victim to the gross...
Jay Dee - Rebirth Of Detroit Well this was just the best video to wake up to on a miserable, hungover-ass day like today; shit perked me right up! Rebirth Of Detroit is a posthumous project from the late, great Jay Dilla; arguably the finest producer out of detroit, and top 5 in the game, period. It’s set to feature the likes of Phat Kat, Guilty Simpson, Danny Brown, plus more, over 25...
The Hilltop Hoods - The Good Life In The Sun...
Getting sick of Drinking From The Sun? Yeah, me too, I mean shit bangs, don’t get me wrong - but with Triple J smashing the fuck out of a select few songs over the last year it’s getting a bit old. Like I love my Grandad too, but I can only hear him jabber on about the same repetitive shit a certain amount times before I get in to his wine and just tune the fuck out. ‘Yeah...
Maundz - Zero: MAY 25TH
The album artwork and track/guestlist for this monster of a release dropped over the weekend, but I was too incapasitated to do a write up on it; so here it is, the belated, half assed write up on an album that deserves so much more effort from me. Maundz’s popularity has skyrocketed in the year since his debut album ‘Mr. Nobody’ - but I’m still not sure how to classify...
4TH (Vegas Aces) Interview: Touring, The Departure...
I recently caught up with one half of the Vegas Aces and had a chat about all things hip hop. Check it out here
BROTHER ALI - NOT A DAY GOES BY OFFICIAL CLIP Yeeaah boy! Those who know me know I’m all about this man right here, and have been ever since I first heard him. Contrary to most rappers these days, Ali just gets better and fucking better with time, and is gaining some well deserved respect at the same time. He’s like a fine red wine, if a red wine were white and had some of the dopest...
Mdusu - 88 1/2 EP
For those that have been paying attention to the fine print and production credits in amongst the lairy and outrageous hip hop album art over the last year or so, you would have the Duse’s name burnt in to the back of your mind permanently; some-what like a dope welders flash. Duse has been a busy little bee, not only with the aforementioned, but also working on a hoard of Tape Death shit,...
Let me get this shit off my chest
I can’t be the only cunt who is fucking sick to death of these sub-par, bullshit, pretentious, pre-written, accapella battle leagues pooping up left right and fucking center, can I? I mean fuck, have a go at this piss-weak bullshit: Now I feel bad for being the dude that had to show that to you, I really, really do; but you know what I’m talking about right? This ‘battle...
Gforce X Down For The Count Interview: Pho, The...
About two weeks ago I was hit up to rock an interview with Melbourne hospitality guru and part time supreme-lord-rapper of the universe, Gforce, about his newly formed label and past, present and future projects, for Ozhiphop.com. Check the interview out here: http://ozhiphop.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=132250 And peep the clip that dropped along with it: GFORCE (DFTC) X ZARKOV (TAPE DEATH) -...
Modern Day Sirens
Ever been so infatuated with a woman after just hearing her voice, that even if she looked like Michael Jackson circa 2005 when he was in and out of the courts, and was a known AIDS carrier, you would still fuck the shit out of her love her tender? Well to those that haven’t: you can fuck right off because this column isn’t for you. I don’t want your Negative Nancy ‘ew...
ODISEE - HUSTLE OFF Odisee dropped this ish today for free download to announce that his new album ‘People Hear What They See’ is up for pre-orders and release on June 12th. Now how you gone not support a mans hustle when they go and do shit like that? Go pre-order that shit right now!
Prime '100 bars' VS. Gzutek 'The 100 Bar Rant'
I was writing a little something up on Gzutek’s 100 Bar Rant drop earlier, then I switched tabs because I lost interest, only to notice Prime’s (from ADL supergroup Pagen Elypsis) 100 Bar video that he dropped a short while ago. What self-respecting blogger would put up two separate posts for essentially two of the same thing? What blogger had self-respect in the first place? So...
Maundz - Gold Member In between reading hard...
Non-Hip Hoppers With Hip Hop Credibility
So I was taking a shit in the dark, because this is what I’ve grown accustomed too since the light in our toilet blew a few months ago, (it’s fixed as of last week, but I enjoy the serenity the darkness brings) and I thought to myself: ‘Bill Murray is one fucking cool dude’ So here we have it; the first instalment of the ‘Non-hip hoppers with hip hop...
What it is?
So here I am, no job, nothing to do with my days and having no reason to get up in the mornings, but I’m starting to get hooked up to do a few (unpaid) interviews with some local hip hop artists and write a few reviews. So I said ‘hey fuck it, why not do some of this shit off my own back instead of waiting for a website/zine to hook me up!’ and here we fucking are! So this blog...
