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 atrocities of the ABC network, in particular Triple J.
Yes, once again, Richard Kingsmill and his super radio presenting team of knee high sock and boat shoe wearing, soft spoken, pushed fringed, ivory tower sitting, ‘I knew them before they were on the radio’ saying, fashion world FUCKUPS have decided fuck our ears with this aids infested ‘hipster hop’ act - Featuring them as their Unearthed Feature Artist
Okay, I’ll go in to a few things here:
1. We’ll start off on a (the only) good note - C1 is a dope producer, and the beat is pretty cool.
Though dressing up with a wolf mask on your head is strictly hipster territory.
Don’t get it twisted, Wolfs are fucking cool; but you’re not a wolf.
Maybe if you were like half wolf, or raised by wolves, or had over-grown toenails that looked like claws or something, then maybe it would be okay to dress as a wolf, but you don’t.
Flaunt your human-ness.
2. Right - so this Allday dude has been rocking around the scene what, one year, possibly two at the absolute most?
Dude has no concept of where hip hop came from in this country, he’d probably struggle to name two pre 2000 Australian Hip Hop releases.
He’s strictly got air play by catering to the happy, poppy 360-esq sound that Triple J spew out with nearly every ‘hip hop’ song they spin on air.
Now, that is what it is, he’s smart and knew how to get his shit air play - but when you do this, you don’t go out having a go at people who call you out on this ‘haters’ - they’re telling you the truth.
If someone doesn’t like it because it’s the same re-hashed shit that every man and his dog is putting out right now; then pull up your cotton socks and learn to deal with that shit, becasue it’s the truth and it won’t be the last time you hear it.
3. HE IS A FUCKING SHITHOUSE COMEDIAN
Now, this video tells me two things:
ONE: He’s a biter; I’ve heard the majority of those jokes a hundred times over
TWO: Dude probably jumps from scene to scene depending on what’s hot at the time - no heart in it, just doing it to get popular.
I could go on, but I’m pretty sure you’re sick and tired of hearing my jaded hate rant by now, so I’ll leave it at that.
If this is what is getting radio play, and will eventually be what influences our future hip hop artists, then it’s looking like a fucking grim future for our scene.
