Massive classic hip hop show tonight. On the tails of the New Frontiers supporter drive, we took it old school. Ready or Not whether you’re part of the Everyday Struggle or living the Street Life Mike Who? dropped some serious beats, so criminal it made you think about investing in a Getaway Car. But this is What We Do.
We also had the darlings of Aussie hip hop Tuka (Thundamentals) and Ellesquire (Loose Change) spit some rhymes. Despite their backstage diva antics (green tea + lemon requests) they were good sports on air and freestyled their way out of an intergalactic theme.
Closing the show was a set from NZ hip hop Don P-Money. This chap is touring Sydney and Melbourne (with the ultra fine and um, talented David Dallas) promoting his album Gratitude.
Speaking of gratitude, FBi Radio is having a super rad out-of-this-world New Frontiers supporter drive. In addition to winning cool prizes, your donation helps keep great shows like this one on air. More information here: http://fbiradio.com/newfrontiers/
Listen: P Money – Celebration Flow ft. Talib Kweli & Aaradhna
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?

Rappers. They love a verse, but so many of them get a little confused when that chorus bit comes along. When a few cuts aren’t going to do and you need a hit hook for your little rap song, then you would crack open the piggy bank, ask your mum for an advance on your pocket money, search through your couch for an extra G and give Nate Dogg a call.
We pay tribute to the G-Funk Crooner with a set of Nate Dogg Hits and the original samples – Mixed together by DJ Naiki.
We are also joined in the studio by Tuka, Nick Knowledge and Nick Lupi of Spit Syndicate for a freestyle rap session.
