In the meanwhile, here’s one of my favourite tracks from Face the Fire - Capitol City.
The Last Kinection (feat Simone Stacey) - Are We There Yet?
The eagerly anticipated new single from The Last Kinection. Loving the guest vocals on this from Nay’s former Shakaya partner, Simone Stacey. You can check out a behind the scenes insight into the clip and the track here. The new album drops 28th October, but you can pre-order it here.
Briggs: Wrong Brother
Anyone who knows me knows that Briggs is one of my favourite MCs. Yorta Yorta brotha hailing from Shepparton, I’ve posted heaps of his shit on here already so it was never going to be long before he was one of my NAIDOC feature tracks. Wrong Brother was the lead single of his freakin dope 2010 debut album The Blacklist.
Jimblah: Face the Fire
Jimblah is a Larrakia MC and producer hailing from Adelaide. I first heard of Jimblah when he took out the inaugural Hilltop Hoods Initiative in 2007. I then got to catch him live for the first time when he toured with A-Love on her Main Ingredient tour. Have been keen ever since for the pending solo release.
Face the Fire, is the title track of Jimblah’s recently released debut album.
Want the ultimate Elefant Traks collectors pack? Something that money can’t buy whatsoever? Well you’re in luck, cause Urthboy and the crew have put together this amazing collection for one of you lucky heads which is signed to within an inch of it’s life.

The floods that have ripped through QLD have become one of the worst natural disasters Australia has experienced. Over 2 dozen towns have been flooded, 15 have died with more than 60 still missing, 25,000 homes and 5,000 business have suffered flood damage and 75% of the state has now…
The cream of Australia’s talent has pooled together for a once in a lifetime eBay listing, offering some extremely rare & desirable bits n’ pieces from their own collections for our friend HUNTER-SBX.
The “HEAT 4 HUNTZ” eBay auction begins Sunday the 8th of November 2010 to help the Perth, Western Australian stalwart who has been battling with Cancer. 100% will go to Hunter & his son Marley!
As a huge fan of the Oz scene, Hunter is an avid collector of the vinyl releases this country has offered, so it’s only fitting we offer a massive selection of some of Huntz faves from over the past 10 years. Most of the pieces on offer are long out of print collectibles with many personalized for this auction by the artist, making the items majorly rare! So…..bid accordingly!This auction will be run by “Wordburner” a.k.a. Bias B, so you can trust the auctions will be 100% legit!
Peers of Hunter’s who’ve helped out with items from their own personal collections are:
Delta DJ Bonez
DJ DCE Hilltop Hoods
Reason Resin Dogs
Briggs - Rapper tag #7
My favourite rapper tag so far. So what is rapper tag?? It’s a virtual cypher being played out with some of our finest at the moment. You can find them all here.
