    Hybrid Culture shows unity in Australian hip hop!

     

    A project for Arts Link Qld. We believe its the first time Australian Indigenous art has been blended with street art to show unity and the possibilities of working as one. Hybrid Culture is a combination of all races in Australia coming together so that we can move forward. The song and imagery reflect this concept and show that if it is possible to do in the Arts then we can do it politically and socially as well. Together we are strong,  divided we fall.

    Artist on Artist Interview! Cormega and Jake Biz

     

    For what had started as a kid in the hallways of a Nas storyline, Cormega has grown a notoriety as one of the most-revered emcees out of 41st Side and Vernon of Queensbridge, New York. Despite his independent career having been met with great adversary, twenty years after Cormega’s release he has stayed true-to-form and triumphed along the way with some well-regarded records, The Realness and True Meaning. For a rapper Marley Marl had once referred to as the ‘original gangsta rapper of Queensbridge’, Cormega regards himself a veteran of hip-hop. After long-service leave, his 2015 album, Megaphilosphy marks a return to fold for the rapper and, for the first time, is bringing his steez to every capital city down-under which opens up in Melbourne, September 25.

    Before the arrival of one of QB’s finest, a purist of the art of rap who has always upheld the traditions of a microphone fiend, we decided to let one of our own emcees, Jake-Biz from Bris-Bang’s Karsniogenics label and one of the formidable few of the 750 Rebels to ask Mega anything and everything about the what-could-have-beens and look-backs at the commercially-underrated career of an incredibly-talented MC. Never shy to tackle the business-side of his business, Mega chopping-up with Jake Biz resulted in a frank and concise exchange of realness between two true heads of hip-hop.

      Cormega Australian Tour

    JAKE BIZ -     Your first album The Testament was shelved by Def Jam in the 90's and didn't see a release until the early 2000's. How was your experience as a signed artist on hip hop's preeminent label?

    CORMEGA - Being on DEF JAM was a learning experience and introduced me to the industry.

    You predate 50 Cent as one of the early artists to use mixtapes as a promotional tool but you rarely receive the credit. Was that the early inspiration for Legal Hustle and your independent grind?

    I was definitely the first to utilize mixtapes as marketing schemes and also as a determiner of where I stood with the public.

    The Realness and True Meaning could almost be viewed as companion pieces and are both clear, fan-favourites. Do you ever feel the pressure from fans and the public to recreate that early success?

    Realness and True Meaning are definitely albums I aspire to equal or exceed every time I make an album.

    You've shown immeasurable growth over the course of your career and you've never hesitated to cite peers such as Chuck D, Slick Rick and the Juice Crew for that, how have you managed to stay a fan of the game and not seem as jaded as other MCs from your era?

    I love what I do and understand it is a blessing to be in my position as an artist plus I respect the foundation.

    The chemistry you share with Large Professor is unquestionable and your latest album Megaphilosophy is a testament to that and you've also worked together in the past. How did the process of making a whole project together differ from getting single tracks from individual producers?

    Working with LP is a challenge but when challenges are met you find out who you really are.

    ‘Industry’ (and its subsequent remixes) is one of the most profound statements in hip-hop from the last five years! In a time where digital reigns supreme and CDs are essentially obsolete do you think the recording industry could ever regroup and see the immense profit it saw throughout the 90s?

    The industry will always find a new way to return like a villain in a superhero movie.

    You're a known sneaker head, do you still get out and cop on release day or has hype-beasting seen your interest diminish?

    I love sneakers but I’m not a hype-beast and luckily I have some cool friends at Puma and New Balance. I really don't wear Nike anymore until I see them show more respect to the black consumer who, by-the-way, kept them from going out of business.

    Peace.

    Can't wait to see you here in Australia. Thanks for your time!

    Maundz Announces Nobody’s Business Australian Tour and Dates!

     

    The Maundzini Navajo, that tracky-dack rapscallion outta Prestonia who throws bars like bricks through windows in a riot, has just announced a national tour starting late October! Scared? Yeah... You should be!

     

    Last seen hijacking Hau’s triple j airwaves, to play three hours of the shit he nods his head to, the so-called Mr Nobody is getting known at a runner’s pace of late and a tour has been highly-anticipated for the Melbourne rapper who has great cause for celebration with the release of his third album Nobody’s Business released on wax, CD and digitally last Friday, through Golden Era and Crate Cartel.

     

    Maundz dropped his first album, Mr Nobody, in twenty-ten and drew respect among heads and from thereon in he rarely went unheard. The last time Maundz and the lethal weapons of Crate Cartel dropped wax, Zero (2012), he let Burn City’s legendary kings Bias B and Brad Strut loose in the booth, cooked up with New York chef Action Bronson and chewed beats with Drapht and Golden Era’s Vents and Sesta. Nobody's Business marks a triumphant return for Maundz and again lines up an all-star guest roster in Hilltop Hoods, Phil Gektor, Billy Bunks, Seth Sentry, Trials, Timeless Truth and Nitida Atkinson.

     

    Maundzilla is showing to be a giant ascending towards the top tier of Australian hip-hop. The acid tongue rapper grinds his rhymes to the pavement every time he busts loose and a live Maundz gig will put you in the firing line with one of the the sharpest emcees at work. Mr Nobody takes his business on the road this late October and plans to take over the country with DJ Discourse and a host of supporting artists to be announced in the coming weeks.
