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!
There is a lot of rapping out there in the world. Lot of noise being made, but not much of it is actually saying anything. As much as I love meaningless rap, occasionally I wonder where all the story telling and opinionated rappers went? Perhaps with the pressure on emcees to produce endless amounts of albums, mixtapes and throw away blog tunes, there comes a point where you have little else you want to express.
Meet Murs (Born Nick Carter in 1978). He is not of this breed. After releasing more albums than Too Short times E-40 to the power of Elvis, he still has tales and opinions to share in his music. It is when you have meet with him, that you realise that what you hear in his music is an extension of his sizable personality.
For the third time, we had the pleasure of chatting to Murs, this time about marriage, Osama, behind the scenes of the ‘Rock The Bells’ tour, and jumping off the stage mid set to kiss Melbourne lady rapper A-Love in the crowd.
Kween G (KillaQueenz) also joined us in the studio as we initated her into the Stolen Records Uber-Thug Family as she prepares to take over the show while I travel to the jungles of Mexico to join Sub Commandant Marcos and his indigenous rebel army.
