How do you react to racism? Anger, humour or ignoring it? I’ve called somebody a ‘Corey Worthington’ as the only thing I could think of close to being as insulting as a truly racist remark.
We talk with Mirrah and her husband, Zig, about racialism in Australia. One of things she says reminds me of the scene in ‘See No Evil, Hear No Evil‘ where the blind character Richard Pryor is playing discovers he is ‘black’. “Does Dad know?”.
Look out for Mirrah’s new mixtape, ‘Life Love Music’, and let us know your experiences.

And because we like you, here is a nice little King Most remix from the set.
We were hoping it would be like 50 Cent vs Kanye when both Spit Syndicate and Ozi Batla released albums on the same day in May. We had to address the rumours that one of them would retire if they don’t out sell the other and also got into a little discussion about Spit Syndicate’s new free food escapades.
We highly recommend that you check out their latest work Exile. You can purchase a copy on iTunes. Also make sure you check out Ozi Batla’s album Wild Colonial

While on tour with Dizzee Rascal and Roots Manuva in January this year, English DJ chap, MK popped in the studio for a mix and a bit of a chinwag. He told us a little about what has been like on tour with the Big Day Out and Days Like This and gives us a mixed bag of Grime, Hip Hop, Fast Rap, and Disco-Boogie goodies.
This is another one from the archives. Bronx freestyle wizard, C-Rayz Walz pops by the studio semi-unannounced. We were talking to Paris and T-Kash that day, and C-Rayz also came by. We had to ask the former Def Jux rapper, Stronghold representative a few questions, which turned into a bit of a freestyle.
Peach is a swell guy. You may no him from Peach and Shag (former FBi 94.5 FM Arvos team), or his collaboration with producer MailerDaemon known as MailerPeach. He is also a lawyer by day. He came by the studio to do a bit of pro bono work providing free legal advice in freestyle form. Yay!
