Hey remember this guy? He was on the show about a month ago and apparently he brought a camera crew.
This track is everything right about hip hop. Chilled beat, thoughtful lyrics and an MC with presence. Check the video and make sure you support homegrown talent and live music by seeing this dude when he comes to a venue near you. Remaining tour dates below. Oh and hey, if you close one eye, squint with the other and take a step back, you can see me at the 2:47 mark. Start the timer on my 15 minutes.

Before rapping and leading a Michael Jackson karaoke sesh in front of today’s youth at the Enmore, Mac Miller rolled through the FBi Studio for a quick chat and a cypher.
Flanked by an entourage of 6, the Pittsburg MC hit us with a hard hitting interview then rounded it off with an awkward-starting-obsenity-filled freestyle. Don’t believe me? Peep the link below.
We also did a phoner with DJ Shortee Blitz. The KISS FM turntablist is kicking off his Australian tour and showed us a thing or two while providing a dope ass 30min set. That too, is also at the link below.

SHORTEE BLITZ 1995 HIP HOP MIX (Playlist Coming… Maybe)
That old geezer that plays Christmas carols on the grand piano in David Jones, better watch out. Joyride is coming for your spot. He has a new mixtape covering Christmas classics. Give Bing Crosby a rest and throw this on during Christmas dinner.
Out of no where. Sold out shows across the country. No significant radio play. Only now they are starting to catch on. In this post record sales and post radio era, underground hip hop is just as popular as ever with a new generation.
Last night went off. Never have we scene the Enmore bounce like that with a crowd full of dedicated hip hop fans. Kendrick did a mix of both old and new material, which all went down amazingly and then ‘bam’ came out for a third encore. Massssiivvvveeee!
So good to see a young hip hop artist come out here, when they’re career is really popping, rather than wheeling out the same old geriatrics chasing 19 year old girls around the backstage.
Let us know what you think? Highlights? Who else do you want to see come out?

It is debatable whether he is the best to ever do it, but he has definitely been consistent and outlasted many of his peers. He has come a long way from crack cocaine raps to becoming a respectable member of the establishment rubbing shoulders with dignitaries such as Prince Charles and President Obama. In my opinion a key part of his success has been a good ear for hip hop production. With so many hits and so many sweet as soul samples, Naiki’s tribute mashing up Jay-Z classics and the original samples was as killer as predicted.

Only 19 years old and English singer Arlissa has already got a collboration with Nas under her belt. Not bad at all. Let’s just hope her parents didn’t have to mortgage their house to make this happen.

Originally known as DJ Haircut, Mayer Hawthorne was a little side project that he was working on in his spare time. He never took himself as a serious singer, until one day he showed it to Peanut Butter Wolf and the rest is history.
As amazing as his show was the first time I saw him. I did think Mayer Hawthorne was the sort of artist, whose strength was more in the studio than as a super awesome live singer. How things have changed.
Mayer Hawthorne’s voice has really developed, as has his live show. So good.
