“I couldn’t decide if I should go all throw-backs or all new joints for this, so I’ve decided to do 5 relatively new tracks by current artists I’m a big fan of, and 5 of my personal favourite tracks dating back to the early 90s”- Ben Funnell

01. Joey Badass- Christ Conscious

I’ve been following Joey since his first mixtape ‘1999’ and he keeps progressing with his delivery and flow. His beat choices stay on point and I’m really looking forward to his official debut LP which drops in January. “Christ Conscious” is the second single off the LP and has a great video. First single “Big Dusty” is also well worth checking for.

02. Melanin 9 aka M9- Amulets

UK rapper and member of Triple Darkness, M9 dropped this killer 12” on Blunted Astronaut Records this year. 12” singles seem fairly rare these days but since this track doesn’t appear on any of his album releases it was well worth the purchase.

03. Timeless Truth- Wavelength

This video features a cameo from one of my all time favourite producers Large Professor, who also produced this track from Timeless Truth’s forthcoming album “Cold Wave”.

04. Mick Jenkins- Dehydration

Incredibly powerful video for this standout track from Mick Jenkins’ mixtape “The Water[s]”. One of the newer artists I’m a huge fan of right now.

05. Killer Mike- Reagan

I was going to include a new Run The Jewelz video here as I’m a huge fan of both RTJ records, but due to the current social/political climate in the US I decided this Killer Mike track was appropriate. This has an awesome animated video which really enhances the message in the lyrics.

06. Eric B. & Rakim- Let the Rhythm Hit ‘Em

I had been into Hip Hop for a couple of years before Rakim’s 3rd album “Let The Rhythm Hit ‘Em” dropped in 1990, and I was already a big fan of his earlier work. When I was 13 years old rapping along to this album I felt like I was Rakim and nobody could f#@k with me. 24 years later I play this album and its the same thing. I ordered the cassette at my local record shop having only seen/heard the title track on Rage, and I can still remember the afternoon I picked up the album, ripped off the plastic and played it the whole way through on my walkman as I walked home. Every track was flawless – and the feeling of hearing an already revered artist lift his game even further above the competition as well as his own previous work was the ultimate G-up. Its a feeling I’ve been chasing ever since and why I continue to buy new music to this day.

07. Black Sheep- Flavor of the Month

Another one I first saw/heard on Rage back in 1991 and I remember copping the cassingle for this track with “Butt, In The Meantime” on the B-side. Was the perfect lead up to the “Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing” album which is still one of my all-time favourite rap records.

08. Lord Finesse- Hip 2 Da Game

From the 1995 album “The Awakening” – Finesse has one of the best voices and flows in the business, and this is probably my favourite song of his. “You can’t mess with the rap lord, that’s like saying you can dunk when you can’t touch the backboard”.

09. Heltah Skeltah ft. O.G.C.- Leflaur Leflah Eshkoshka

I’m a huge fan of the entire Boot Camp Clik, especially the debut albums from each group. This killer track is from Heltah Skeltah’s 1996 album “Nocturnal”. At the time this was so grimy and raw – a perfect contrast to a lot of the jiggy ’shiny suit era’ stuff going on at the time.

10. De La Soul- Stakes is High

I remember copping the “Stakes Is High” album and Nas’ 2nd LP “It Was Written” on the same trip into the city when they dropped back in 1996. Both incredible albums in their own right, with Nas’s record representing a shift towards his mafioso persona as he was experiencing huge success and financial gains, and De La Soul maintaining their down to earth, relatable everyman stance. Pos and Dave deliver some of the most poignant verses I’ve ever heard on this track. Easily one of my favourite rap songs of all time.

11. Public Enemy- Brother Gonna Work it Out

Again, due to the situation surrounding the not guilty verdict in Ferguson, Missouri Ive included this incredible track and video from PE’s 1990 album “Fear Of A Black Planet”. The video also features a portion of the “Contract on the World Love Jam” intro – probably the best intro to an album ever.


KERS 010 - King 1400px (With Text)Kerser’s 4th LP in as many years, KING is by far his best and most accessible, despite being the most brutal.

A success story no one predicted, MC Kerser is the most polarising voice in Australian hip hop, epitomising the notoriously hard-living suburbs of Sydney’s outer west.

With trademark, unapologetic, honesty, KING documents Kerser’s incredible trajectory from his stomping ground in Sydney’s West [‘C-Town’], the fight he’s undertaken to get out [‘Put Life In Rap’] and the hard-won realisation that success creates its own problems [‘Forever’.]

Though championed by the marginalised society he emerged from, some early fans have fallen by the wayside, accusing Kerser of flaunting success. The industry you’d think would respect the numbers, appear to see the rapper as too close to the crime-ridden scenes he’s been forced to leave. It’s a fascinating, no doubt frustrating, situation for the fiercely loyal, unashamedly honest and humble MC.

Stuck in the middle, Kerser rejects self-pity, using the dichotomy as a source of strength, making KING his best album yet. Accessible, despite its brutality, with storytelling at its sharpest and Nebs production never better, KING is headed for the top of the charts, with a special fold-out poster included with the physical CD for the fans who keep Kerserthere. It’s the relationship with supporters that forces the music industry to reconsider success; despite his hard upbringing, Kerser inspires legions of fans to push harder, and expect more.

Initially gaining notoriety in an emcee battle with 360, before nearly breaking YouTube with his promo clips [clocking up to 100,000 views in 48 hours], first record The Nebulizer [2011] signaled Kerser’s deadly serious intentions. Second album, the ruthless No Rest For The Sickest hit #1 on the ARIA Urban charts, #1 on the iTunes Hip Hop charts, and #14 on the overall iTunes charts [and was ‘Most Stolen Album From JB HiFi’], before the tour DVD debuted at #1 on the National ARIA Charts, beating P!nk. By then a festival veteran, and selling out shows nationally, fashion labels approached him for endorsements – usually the other way round – which saw sales tripling when he showed garments on social media.

Third LP S.C.O.T [2013] was held at #2 on the iTunes charts by superstar Katy Perry. A week later S.C.O.T was #5 on the main ARIA Charts and #1 on the ARIA Urban Charts. The S.C.O.T. National Tour DVD [Sept, 2014] provided never-seen insight, debuting at #2 on the ARIA Charts. Held back by Hillsong Church, Kerser was still ahead of The Wiggles Best Of, Queen Live At Wembley Stadium and Andre Rieu in the Top 5 showing how his fans return the love and loyalty he’s shown them.

One of the most humble artists in the game, Kerser is finally gaining respect, despite sticking to his self-belief – a trait sometimes mistaken for cockiness. His unconventional rise to fame, free from the filtration of radio programmers and the limitations of genre quotas, created a loop hole in the system. Accumulating well over 220,000 Facebook fans and more than 15 million YouTube views with little to no radio play, Kerser has risen to the top by telling his story without filter. An unlikely hero if ever there was one, Kerser has become an icon for hope, resilience and resourcefulness, inspiring hundreds of thousands nationally.
