If you are not yet formally acquainted allow me to introduce you to Levins and Captain Franco. Levin’s is your favourite DJs, favourite Australian DJ. If not for his musical selections, definitely for his kangaroo burgers and fine hospitality. Meanwhile, Franco is the DJ of choice for all those untouchably, hot hipster girls that look like they fell out of one of your wank fantasies.
Together with the help of Spruce Lee they do a hip hop night called Halfway Crooks. It earns both the disparagement and envy of ‘true school’ hip hop heads. It is one of the few good hip hop parties in Sydney, which is a ‘party’ and there is a possibility you may go home with a female with all her own teeth.
They have started a new podcast called the Hip Hoptimist. It is basically them giving their review of the latest rap albums, and talking copious amounts of shit. Alternatively, I could just hang out at The Dip or Heaps Decent for this sort of conversation, but today I chose to download it. If they cyphered at the end of each of these episodes I would be a regular listener.
Here they give their two cents on Lil Wanye, Ferrari Boyz, Jay-Z & Kanye, and The Games latest works.
