The wave continues with a new video released today by LA’s dilated rainmaker Evidence. ‘Throw It All Away’ sounds like EV has been experiencing some gloomy weather of his own. He goes in with that signature slow flow style delivering a tale of taming the cyclone within. Alchemist provides the backdrop with a classic synthetic drum break and a mind bending string sample loop. No news on a new solo album at this stage, it’s been a minute between storms since Cats and Dogs in 2011.
2017 is shaping up to be a cracker year for Hip Hop me reckons. This is just too fuckin’ good not to post up. Run Royal….where you at?

Jake Biz, Overproof Pete and Gaz Hazard – members of Brisbane’s 750 Rebels and Karsniogenics Records – were recently given the opportunity to team up with Olympic boxer Brad Hore for his Keep Your Hands To Yourself campaign, a movement against the spate of coward punch attacks that have been happening in Brisbane’s night life precincts and around Australia. Not only are these cowardly attacks killing people in the streets they are affecting our night life precincts with stringent and ineffective lock-out laws.
Keep Ya Hands To Yourself is Produced by Overproof Pete aka Brookes Cullings and recorded at Gullywood Studios.
Video filmed by 750 Rebels collaborator Dolan for DF Des1gn. For videography and filmwork please contact Dolan at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thank you to all our friends in the hip hop community across Australia for being involved. Too many to name but thank you all for being involved!
Special thanks to Gareth and all the boxers from the Boxing Shop.
Keep Ya Hands To Yourself and help stop the madness.
Just watch & listen to how it’s done! Kuntz say Hip Hop is dead! Well it’s the legends still doin’ it proper. BPM’s and lyrical warfare to tear apart ya despair!!
As the weekend approaches so too does another World Record Store Day. For many, it’s kind of like Valentine’s Day and other gimmick orientated days – why should we be told to show love on one day specifically, and not all year round? As many diggers are 365 and dedicated to finding that hidden gem in dusty crates, many do not subscribe to this day. Well, fuck that! I love it. It’s a great celebration of all things music, culture, independence and a kunt load of piss with good mates! Sounds dope to me!
So as many rush out to buy that 20th edition of Dilla’s Fuck Tha Police, Illmatic, Operation Doomsday & a slew of other re-re-re-releases, keep one thing in mind – it’s an ace day and a great excuse to see many friends in various spots throughout your city you may not have seen in a hot minute. Great live performances from MC’s, DJ’s & limited edition wax will be the flavour of the day. To all the diggers & hanger-on-ers, enjoy your day! I certainly will.
Here is a select few events happening in the Melbourne Hip Hop scene. For more info on your city hit this link…
Haven’t really had much of an opportunity to get on here and talk about other peoples rap talk, arrange any DSTT for the year or edit the clusterfuck of interview footage I got on hand but it’s all there ready and waiting to be done. It’s worth waiting on. For a good part of the end of last year, life (as we all know) put on the full court press and didn’t let me get the outlet pass for the buckets haha.
Due to this, I missed a lot of new music. Aside from the face album, which is nothing short of awesome I haven’t actively sought out anything or really been feeling much so I’ve fallen back to my staples.
Thankfully, the new ways of finding out about things, sent me my feed to which I was graced with this new joint by Rozewood. Have enjoyed some his past work but I’m really feeling this one. DJ Skizz’s laid back beat is perfect. “Death/Life, everything will come together” to kick the hook off. Works!
I guess after tasting the sour so often you learn to appreciate sweetness when it comes round…With so much going in life it’s refreshing to connect on something with someone over the other side of the world saying real shit with conviction.
I still be about that brolic ignat shit that makes you wanna belt a fucks face in but this caught my vibe today.
Give it a listen.
The Yokohama charmer, Matty Fresh has been busy tappin’ the pads and put together a tight 7 track instrumental up for free download to kick the year off right. Dope sample selection over some fresh MP drum patterns all tied in with some cool retro interludes. Get your bars up to it and just get down with it.
Late last year Debonair P (Gentleman’s Relief) teamed up with O.C. (DITC) and dropped a dope 4 track EP ‘Dive In’. For someone who flew half way across Australia to see O.C. live in early twenty fifteen, the year couldn’t of ended any better. After almost a month of bangin’ the digital format I was excited to hear that vinyl pre-orders were shipping this week and felt the urge to share with y’all..
DP provides moody soundscapes setting a perfect background for O’s forethought and skills tight cut chorus’ on all 4 joints which I found refreshing after bumping the rhyme chorus heavy classic ‘Trophies’. O.C. did what he does best and put you all in check with deep conscious lyrics and a smooth delivery that he makes sound seemingly effortless.
The bandcamp D/L came with bonus instrumentals and remixes but left me hanging for more; like a good extended play should. I don’t even need to say it, if you’re reading this blog then this is probably your shit too! Check the soundcloud snippets below.
For those who have got to have it on wax, there are still some copies available HERE
Dive in and enjoy!
Merry Christmas everyone!
