Video: Busdriver – Niggas In Paris and Shutterbug Freestyle


WATCH THIS! Busdriver did this freestyle on the show late last year. Possibly the best freestyle we have had on the show since Aceyalone paid us a visit. There is something about those West Coast underground rappers and insane freestyle flows.

Rest In Peace Heavy D

Heavy D
He went pop, but was still well respect among his peers in hip hop. Just listen to the ‘Friends & Respect’ interlude below where everybody from Kool G Rap to Buju Banton to KRS One to Queen Latifah talk with so such admiration about Heavy D even before he passed. Rest In Peace to the overweight lover. Such good memories of doing running man and trying to suck face with girlies to your music.

P Smurf freestyle with Kween G on Stolen Records


Kween G again in take over mode, while I was overseas. P Smurf of Daily Meds and the Big Village Massive popped by the studio. Not wanting to rap on his lonesome, the Kween dropped a verse or two with Mr Smurf. Watch out!

Pssstt… whatever. Old man Shantan did his share of rapping in his days. Not particularly amazing, but the words rhymed.

Video: Shaggy Live Radio Freestyle on FBi Radio


A little while ago, Shaggy was in the country to celebrate his 42nd birthday. It was a promotion for 42 Below Vodka, where if you e-stalk Shaggy on twitter and mob him in the streets when he checks into locations around Sydney, you could win an invite to his party at Good God.

Now though Shaggy’s performance at the party was a lot of fun, he mostly played other peoples songs, hyped them up, and then got the crowd to sing a few of his tracks. It was a good party, but in the end Shaggy did more actual singing on our radio show than anywhere else in Australia.

You may know the pop star Shaggy, but here you’ll witness an amazing dancehall artist in action.

The Folkes Brothers vs Shaggy – ‘Oh Carolina’

This is another one that you may not know was a cover, Shaggy’s version of The Folkes Brother’s ‘Oh Carolina’. The original was released in 1960 and was a landmark single in the development of reggae and ska music. It was reworked by Shaggy in 1993 and became an international mega hit.

We thought we would put it up here, because we have the fantastic, romantic, boombastic lover Shaggy in the studio this Wednesday so we can celebrate his birthday with fairy bread and chocolate crackles, and ask him questions like ‘Why does he sound drunk on each one of his tracks?’
