Australian Hip Hop is Alive and Well

Featured artist: Shorty Mic - Australian Hip Hop is Alive and Well


As part of our ongoing "Rap's New Generation" series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Shorty Mic from Melbourne to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint...

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Shorty Mic! Let's go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Shorty Mic: How I decided to become an artist myself was after listening and studying some of the artists I listened to on heavy rotation. For me it all started with Tupac and Biggie and then it branched out to other artists such as Snoop Dogg, Kurupt and Daz, Dr Dre, Ice Cube and Eminem then eventually it spanned to the New York heavy hitters. I loved what they did so much I started writing my own rhymes, I always had a pen and pad on my person.
What also made me want to become an artist is the culture itself I just love everything about it. By studying the culture my listening went backwards in time to the pioneers in rap and again it just blew my mind and the respect I have for these artists is tremendous, we wouldn't have the hip hop we have today if it wasn't for them.

One of the best pieces advice I've gotten was actually from a book and it said
"A man who does nothing also takes a risk"
That got me right there because that can go for all aspects of life.

Advice I would give an artist
"Don't put off what you can do today, tomorrow, because tomorrow never comes and time waits for nobody"

I follow this one myself because it's so damn true.

- Shorty Mic


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I do play live quite often, this year alone I've supported Obie Trice and Swifty Mcvay from D12, Dj Unk, Cali Swag District and Madchild. In between big gigs like that I usually do smaller gigs like showcases, open mic nights and other hip hop events. Pretty much who ever will have me, I'm there. Keeps the buzz going and keeps the live performance techniques sharp.

Best punchline you ever wrote?


Just like a over head deadlift I raise the bar.
- Shorty Mic

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I'm currently working on two more singles and another EP and planning on shooting a bunch of visuals for these tracks.
I've released so much in the past with solo projects and collaborations and also released heaps with my crew Rippin' Rhymes. Always got something popping.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Yes but it depends on the record label.
The pros for me would be the connections you'd make and the financial backing being signed to a major. The cons however is the feeling of being stuck in a contract when music sales are declining, if you aren't selling, the major won't push you as hard.
I'm going to keep it short I can keep going on an on with pros and cons on this subject but again yes I would sign to a major if it feels right to me,

Any last words?

First of all I want to shout out all my supporters who have stuck with me through my ups and downs through my career so far. Without you there'd be no Shorty Mic, so thank you and know I appreciate you.
I want to shout out my City which is Melbourne and where I currently reside which is Ballarat.
I want to throw a shout out to my promotion team, my fellow artists and promoters who I work with, it's been nothing but a pleasure to work with y'all and may we continue to work in the future.
I also want to shout out to my doubters, haters and undersetimaters, keep doing your thing you're keeping ya boy strong in the game.

All Eyes on Syrian Australian Recording Artist

Featured artist: FwCartier - All Eyes on Syrian Australian Recording Artist


As part of our ongoing "Rap's New Generation" series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist FwCartier from Sydney to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint...

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, FwCartier! Let's go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

FwCartier: Ive always found my way to being creative, up until recently reflecting on my life .. I realised it's been with in me since year 3.
Wasn't until 5 years ago I decided to invest my all into this.
It was the year after my father was murdered, that following year I needed to vent.
Since then I've targeted my depression anxiety and life's hurdles and pushed it through expressed melodies, which commonly are mistaken for shallow aesthetics.

Be your self ! Whatever you're facing is only going to build character, if you feel like giving up DON'T.
You obtain everything in this life through the currency of wisdom.. if you don't have it yet .. you're not equipped to handle it yet.
Nothing is given, trust your self and pay attention to the evolution of your own mind.
People don't see your vision they only get in the way.
DO IT ALL YOUR SELF AND HELP OTHERS.

- FwCartier


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes I do, I've been in the lab lately so I need to get my self out there soon with all this new work.

Best punchline you ever wrote?


My Come Up Is Disrespectful.
- FwCartier

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I've recently realeased a mixtape called "Kora", three tracks off that tape are on all streaming platforms like Spotify Apple Music Deezer Tidal etc.
The rest of my tape and most my projects are found on Soundcloud.
I'll be releasing a new mixtape
(dates yet to be announced)
"theCartierfolder" which will blow some people out the water.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Yeah I would, I see it as rapid business expansion.
But like with anything there's always a down side
So as long as I'm happy with my end of the deal, the fairness and freedom then I'm down to sign away.
The industry is tricky and I understand that, so it's high alert with this type of stuff.

Any last words?

Big shout out to all my supporters, if you know you know .. it's no fan base its cult based, so shout out to my Rare Vibes Only group
Shout out to my area Minto
My city Sydney
I wanna most importantly thank my mamma for teaching me how to be G. You make my life easier.

We just released our debut project titled "Declassified". It is available on all streaming platforms and as of right now we're preparing release visuals for the project.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

With the climate of the music business today dealing with streaming and viral success, I honestly doubt we would sign to a major label. We'll definitely be interested in partnering with a major label if it makes sense. With the message and agenda we pushed through our music,we want to have complete control of how it's pushed to the world.

Any last words?

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Tony Kordell! Let's go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Tony Kordell: My father sang with groups and artist like Cuba Gooding Sr. and the Main Ingredient , The Stylistics , The McFadden Brothers and Phil Perry. He used to have my siblings and i singing and doing dance routines. My oldest Brother (King Homage) had a group called "The Midwest Playaz Click" in the late 90's . I would study them and do features on their song at 15, 16 years-old. After many attempts with friends so get something started for us , here i am doing my solo thing.

I was told , " Its not how you rap its how u grit". (Grit is a Kansas City slang for hustle) I would tell another artist not to wear their emotions , there are no permanent friends or enemies in the entertainment business. Also success isn't right around the corner. Trail and error could be few or could be great , just don't stop.

- Tony Kordell


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes i do concerts . When you book me you get a performance . I come with high energy , crowd participation , routines , and merchandise . I want to leave an impression when it comes to my music . On stage and off.

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

Currently Working on "Bakc Vol.2" . My first retail release "Bakc" is available on all major digital platform as well as physical copies. Before this I release an album and mixtape under the title "Everybody Hates Tony". This project is available for download on Datpiff and streaming on Youtube.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Yes if the terms are straight ! We all want a distribution deal while labels are trying to give 360's .Try to meet somewhere in the middle. Are you keeping your publishing and royalties , then a 360 deal is not for you. Are you taking your 360 advance to buy real estate to flip ? It really depends on the artist and what their plans are. No two walks of life are the same.

Any last words?

Shout out KueitBoy , Manager Man , King Homage , 58 Namez , Bullit Ant , Scario Andreddi , Pittsburgh Philthy , Team Hard Wood Films , Woodgrain Productions , and the whole KCMO and KCK area.

Bringing the Gospel through the outlet of rap

As part of our ongoing "Rap's New Generation" series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist B.D.Kold from Livingston,la to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint...

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, B.D.Kold! Let's go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

B.D.Kold: I grew up rapping, going in and out jail, trying to always come up with that next big move to become who I wanted to be, it wasn't until I gave the street life up and learned the precept of the Bible and who God called me to be that my music actually took off

The best advice I was given as an artist, was when I was 17, my big homie lil witness, told me to always pray and ask God what he wanted your verse to be, this was years befor I was walking with God but I started doing that, and now days my craft is solely based upon that.

The advice I would give to another artist : always do what your spirit says, always pray, never comprimise, and work your butt off

- B.D.Kold


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I haven't have much stage time in my new stance as an artist, but in due time those things will come. I would love to perform , right now I'm still in the building stages, I started this in January.

Best punchline you ever wrote?


The king brought me back, like lazurus, I guess, that resurrected life, that lazurus effect

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I put out an ep called walking in faith on 3-17-18 I put out an ep called heart condition on 7-16-18 im wrapping up a free to download mixtape called distribution of Hope set to drop 12-18-18, will have another ep between now and feb, entiitled steeet Gospel, and begin working on my Lp son of the King by March of 19

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

I'm not against signing a contract, I think that being able to provide for your family and do what your called to do, or enjoy to do, what your passion is, is an amazing thing, but I would have to be dealing with someone who seen my vision and gave me creative freedom and control, never would I comprimise my message

Any last words?

I want to give a shout out to god without him none of this would be possible, my parents and close family, because I put them through it when I was coming up, my people that always stayed down no matter what, and to anyone and everyone who wants to be better in life, God has a plan for you, he created you with a purpose in mind, all you have to do is ask him to allow you to be who he had in mind when he created you

As part of our ongoing "Rap's New Generation" series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Pain Gusto from Montclair to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint...

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Pain Gusto! Let's go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Pain Gusto: My love for music as a little kid drove me to become an artist, but the song that really made me want to rap was Wu-Tang "Protect Ya Neck". Method Man's verse was flawless and impressive to the point I felt I can do it too.

The best advice an artist gave me is to keep perfecting my craft even when you feel its perfect and it can always be better.
The only advice I can give an artist is to not stop and keep grinding.

- Pain Gusto


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes I have played live and done a few shows, looking forward to do more.

Best punchline you ever wrote?


Fucking with me you gonna be the moon blocking the sun….that mean you get full of clipse you get hit with the dum dums, dumb dumbs
- Pain Gusto

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I am currently working on a Mixtape titled "Pain Muzik 4", the other volumes can be found on datpiff or any other streaming sites. Im also currently working on a album titled "House Of Pain". I also have "Gusto Files" on datpiff and the latest album I released is "Project Mayhem" available on all streaming sites.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

I don't know if I would sign to a major but im guessing if the contract is right who knows. On one side it'll be great to have a major machine backing me gaining more exposure and then some but then on the side it seems like when a major gets their hands on a artist, the artist changes and becomes the label's puppet and I don't want anybody trying to compromise my artistic beliefs or ways.

Any last words?

Quick shout out to my daughters Karmah and Xena, daddy love you.
Shout to the 4th Ward and anybody that fucks with me, and a special shout out to all lyricists and back packers.. We gonna bring that Boom Bap back!!

Keys To The M.O.E Is on the way.

Featured artist: Kilo M.O.E - Keys To The M.O.E Is on the way.


As part of our ongoing "Rap's New Generation" series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Kilo M.O.E from Baltimore to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint...

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Kilo M.O.E! Let's go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Kilo M.O.E: My brother was my biggest inspiration. We grew up in a musical household. Records! Lots of records. We lived in the record stores. Everyone had their own record player, boom box, or stereo. All rooms of the house except the bathroom. My brother had DJ Equipment back when it wasnt every single person you knew had. We passed around 'mix tapes' and im talking actual Tapes. The real deal. Not downloads of people rapping over industry beats. The whole thing was about having the best cuts, blends, and scratches and mastering certain mixes. My Brother is much older than me and at the time we were living in munich, germany. This was a 4 year time period elementary school where I developed my pursuit in music. My brother was my number one inspiration. Had it not been for that time period in life I probably wouldnt be doing this. I came home to Baltimore and started pursuing the career again but after some creative differences and lack of motivation, some on my behalf I got into bodybuilding and personal training which took me away from the pursuit little over ten years.

The best advice I got was from Big Steve Gee. This I could never forget as you he told me to avoid all the noise of the 'brands', cliques, logos, and fly by night situations and do what I already know. Stay in my lane and do me. Artists, learn what YOUR product is and learn how to package it to monetize. Plan your work and work your plan. Work from ahead and never from behind.

- Kilo M.O.E


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I do. I am Vocalist and true emcee. Crowd engagement and working the audience is my thing. High Energy is my thing so its of great importance to embody this in performance and in person. I do I just came back from Topeka, Kansas in middle august.

Best punchline you ever wrote?


Im not punchline rapper…. But I'll slap niggaz in the lunch line yappin.
- Kilo M.O.E

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

Currently I just completed my third studio album called Keys To The M.O.E. Its finished as of last week and I am working the different promo angles as we speak. We are looking at dropping this around the end of January through my independant label O.M.G Entertainment, inc. I dropped a single back in January "Rambo" which was recieved real well on several outlets. To date we are close to 20k Streams. Rambo is a single from a project Im working on with a close associate of mine Cyco Thah Urchin which is called "Road Kill". He just dropped the second single to that project known as "Gotta Get It" available now on all streaming outlets.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

My Situation wont work for a recording contract. I am certainly open to joint ventures and perhaps a one off deal. Like all business the pros and cons depends solely on your current needs assessment and S.W.O.T analysis.

Any last words?

Certainly! Cyco, Fat Cat OGC, Hecdakid, PopsJr., Dj King Assassin, Dj Green Guy, 98.2 The Beat L.A. For keeping me in massive rotation. The Universe of course.

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Nate Glizzy! Let's go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Nate Glizzy: As a little kid my mom used to listen to a lot of local rap and mainstream rap and old school music so As I'm getting older and older I guess I got pulled more and more into it due to the fact that I could relate to a lot of the music that I was listening to I started writing about eight years ago and since then it's been my passion

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

I would but I would have to be dedicated to it, some major pros and cons that I've seen is the fact that they basically control you but at the same time you're making a ton of money, the only thing I would not want from a record labels is to hound me over and over again.

No I don't do any shows just wanna create a strong internet presence hopefully get a song to go viral, maybe get discovered by a label or bigger artist, and hopefully get an opportunity to have some music placed on a TV show or movie.

Best punchline you ever wrote?


Life is short don't wait to do what you love
- Cory Siles

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

Right Now I'm kinda just working a normal fulltime job to pay the bills and take care of my fam, but I've been networking with some bigger names in the industry might do a song with Blake Kelly, and Sap. Besides that there are a couple other local artists I bee trying to make a song with like just made a track with LG Team Genius a few weeks ago and I'm trying to get one done with Chester Naitive Maserati Ran both really dope artists from PA!

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Yes, The Pros are instant exposure and budget to start making bigger moves as well as better industry connections and possibilities to work with established artists. The cons are not owning all the rights to your music possibly getting shelfed or looked over.

Any last words?

I wanna give a shoutout to every man in my shoes right now with nothing but a dream don't lose the faith and keep grinding everything in perfect timing.
