Australian Hip Hop

To coincide with the release of their brand new self-titled album, Smog (Kogz, Matt Rafle, Rob Shaker, Maggot Mouf) have just put out a brand new clip titled dippin, shot by Shaker, featuring Maggot Mouf and Kogz dropping heavy bars on a dizzying hypnotic beat, also produced by Matt Rafle.

We caught up with Shaker and Maggot Mouf for a quick chat.

What can we expect from the new album?

Rob Shaker: The albums pretty well described by its name really.. "smog". I'd describe it as a mixture of dark, gloomy beats and some boom bap bangers with some pretty raw lyrics from Kogz and Mouf. Some of the tracks are a bit out there, some are pretty topical and relevant, some comical, some political. all kinds of shit really, but with a distinct smoggy sinister vibe.

Maggot Mouf: Smog album is us 4 having fun in the studio. Kogz n me were just guna do a single then we worked on ep then everything came together so well we kept going n before we knew it had an album worth. Us 4 were all on the same level the dippin clip pretty much sums up the vibe of the album. Having some on bangin beats with some deep lyrics here n there.

Can you tell us a bit about the new video Dippin?

Rob Shaker: The track Dippin is about a mysterious weather phenomenon that happens once every so often caused by an excess build up of wack rappers in the atmosphere, a thick cloud of mist engulfs them, often never to be seen again.

Inhale weak rappers, exhale smog clouds! You're fucking up the scene best believe that it's not allowed.
