hi guyz I got another request. today Im going to talk about another aussie rapper called SARR. he is only an internet rapper! im going to review the tracks on his soundclick page.



SARR is a young mc from melbourne. when he is not at school or reading books in the library (he has read the art of war!!1!1!) he does rap. he left NURCHA records and is looking for a new label so if anyone out there runs a record label, give this guy a go!

the first song is called 'I WILL RISE'. it has cool lyricz metaphors like "you fall in love like a shit cunt". the flow is dope and the beat is hype. it is about his life in the struggle as a thug and drug dealer. sarr grew up around drugs and street fights. i wonder has he ever killed a man? it is unknown. do a song about it, sarr!

'POWER' is another song. it features PROFANITY. the flow is dope and the beat is fire. this is just another song about all the people who hate sarr.

i think he has a album coming out 'the futures infected 2' (GET IT SARR SOUNDS LIKE SARS LOL "INFECTED"). it is supposedly "THE MOST TALKED ABOUT STREET LP IN AUS HIP HOP. DISSING AND REVEALING THE CLOWNS IN THE SCENE". what more can i say. i cant wait!

sarr is in the rap game and here to stay! some say sarr is the australian 50 cent. any record label would be smart to sign sarr because 50 cent is a PLATINUM RAPPER in the USA. nurcha must be crazy not to sign sarr! I recommend him to anyone who is a fan of 50 cent.

sarr is a controversial character on the forums! so dont take my word for it. heres what others sare saying:

Liam_Lloyd says:
sorry but your rubbish. i aint gonna ride ur dick like everybody else tho.
its cats like you that kill this industry. talk yourself up n diss everybody. [sic]

dM says:
Beats fucking nuts. [sic]

Daino says:
the hook needs alot more work, this is australian hip hop not 50 cent rip off's. that being said as usual really liked profs verse. Dont really like the whole staunch thing but thats me others might. dissing people wont get anywhere but peeps spleans in their laps. keep it up keen to hear the album when it drops. [sic]

Emulate says:
i think vocals are to loud [sic]

REPORT: hilltop hoods - the calling

originally posted in 2006

it had to happen. i am now reviewing one of the greatest aussie hip hop albums evar!

THE CALLING is the debut album from adelaide duo HILLTOP HOODS. they are made up of pressure and suffer. some say the calling is the best aussie hip hop evar! i dunno about that so lets get started with my in depth review now.

there is a man with a samurai sword on the cover and this sets the tone for the CD. unfortunately this was done better by the wu tang clan 5 years ago and is getting a bit old to have martial arts with hip hop. pressure and suffer are also pictured looking very "STAUNCH" (hmm...just like tornts). they like to dress like the rap crew NWA.

musically the album is really diverse and quite long. my head was nodding right at the intro to some cool samples. then the first song TESTIMONIAL YEAR starts up WOW. they only thing they are testing is my patience with a song that is much too long. hill top hoods like to rap about hip hop and how long they have been rapping.

a stand-out-track is called DUMB ENOUGH. there is some DJ SCRATCHING in this song. this was played on the radio and i can see why. this is another song that got in the hot 100 because people love it and its funny. thumping bassline and horns are very cool. "ITS A SWAN!" I dont get it but i LAWLED SO HARD at this!.

another song that was played on the radio (including ON NOVA!!1!!!!!1) is THE NOSEBLEED SECTION. the nosebleed section means the highest seats in a stadium btw. there is a cool flute sample plus a nice bassline and the horns are cool. this is the BEST oz hip hop EVAR. people love it so much it got played on NOVA and it became the triple j most requested song EVAR. what more can I say? release it as a single, guys! you will be rich! you can also get this for your ringtone.

the longest song is THE CERTIFICATE. this song features many rappers that are friends of hill top hoods. i dunno who they are but it has a cool beat with a bassline and horns. cool!

after this there is a silly song called HILLTOP HOODS. it is pointless and short so i skipped it. it needed some horns and a bassline!

the rest of the songs are very dope as well. the boys have done a great job with the beats and dj scratching. the basslines and horns are really cool.

i heard there is also a secret track but it wouldnt play in realplayer program lol sry.

this is NOT your average american gangsta rap dominated by bitches, money and cars. the HILL TOP HOODS are rapping about australian things like swans and drinking beer in an original way. it is only a matter of time before these guys get a record deal!!!
I recommend this to anyone! 5/5 awesome dope CD best EVAR!

but dont take my word for it! here are some of the interesting reviews from around the interweb:

Jim says:
This album has tracks that utilise not only traditional hip-hop samples such as horns and basslines, but also makes excellent use of melody and rhythm whilst remaining true to the hip-hop sound.

G Force says:
A perfect blend of funky, extremely listenable beats combined with lyrics that are witty, intelligent and grab you the whole verse, hook then back again. Quite possibly the tightest, most professional Australian release to date, as was expected.

Awbs says:
i really like the calling.

Blazed1 says:
For a group thats been rapping for ten years these guys are pathetic, "Step on up if your dumb enough" this has got to be one of the worst hooks I have ever heard. If these are the countries most respected hip hop artists then somebody shoot Austrailian hip hop now, please.
Am I the only one who sees how bad they are? editors note: YES you are
You people would not know true hip hop if it put it's size 10 up your ass. Go buy Rawkus Records Soundbombing III, that is real.
Aussie hop hop is stuck in the 80's, get your shit together coz I know you can do better.

Glen Young says:
I love this album its very funky got some good freestyling and always get your head bouncing

isha#2 says:
the hill top hoods album "the calling" is tops. there beats are "banging" and there lyrics are "front" and there just a killah group.
"nose bleed section" is rool

REPOST - Torntz

originally posted in 2006

tornts is another auzzie rapper (oh wow how many of these dudes are there now huh?!!!). some say he is staunch. others say his parents were cruel to him as a child and he has no friends.
the intro on the tornts album is scary and features tornts swearing profesely. the beats are supposed to be dark but let me tell you tornts is no kanye west and doesnt really impress me with his beats.
"recording death threats over eerie music" is a lyric that describes this release. unfortunately he is not able to back up his threats with violence.
dresswise, tornts is known to dress as a PE teacher for some reason. on the cover art of the album he is wearing a raincoat i dunno why. he really is silly with his metrosexual ways of lifestyle.
i think tornts is a soft rapper compared to my favourite rappers hijack and torch and bones because let it be said that he cannot hold a flow like butterfingers or the hilltop hoods.
tornts is challenging to listen to and some may even call his listeners metrosexuals because of their clothes and taste in homos. it is a good album to pick up for your sister or a friend you dont like lol.

but dont take my word for it. heres wot others are saying:

James Dorahy says
This is a unique album and it has to be said one that is distinctively Australian. I canĂ¢€™t see music of this type being released from any other country. Decimation Recordings will undoubtedly alienate some listeners. Due to its harsh content and minimalist beats some people will not get the satisfaction that I personally got from this outstanding release.

Drake says
staunch can be alright, but on a quick listen tornts didnt amaze me. i should give the cd a good listen one of these days

Spyro Witherdale says
tornts is quite the emotional rapper he makes merryweather look like necro

REPOST: butterfingerz

originally posted 11-7-2006

DJ butterfingers
is a aussie raper. his songs get played on triple j and made it into the hot 100 last year. well done! the debut album is called breakfast at fatboys.
butterfingers must be obese (but he is not signed to obese records.......YET). apart from rapping he can also do punk and rock, something most rappers dream of.
butterfingers music is funny its like the rapping wierd al yankovic. he raps about when his house burns down and he loses his job lol. there is also a guitar solo.
but dont take my word for it. heres what others are saying...........

Katy rates it 5/5
fabulous album, each songs seemingly brilliant with a tight, unique and amusing concept unravelling as it plays...may its obscenities touch us all

Jordy rates it 4/5
haven't heard the whole album yet
but 'i love work' and 'yo mama' are ace

Luke Harrison rates it 5/5
Awesome stuff, very versatile, always humorous and quirky. Great album to break up that single genre monotony

REPOST: pegz - axis

originally posted 11-7-2006

PEGS is a rapper also knowsn as pegasuz from sydney, ausralia. his album features lots of catchy words and lyrics as well as the beats that he produced all by himself at his plutonic lab studio.
the main reason OBESE RECORDS label released this is because of the song featuring hilltop hoods. it also features some of my favourite rappers hijack and torch.
did you know pegs is a teacher?!!!!!!!! amazing.
recently he has won the annual DMC championship in america. well done pegs. you rock m/
but dont take my word for it, heres what other people are saying..

Guero rates it 1/5
I've heard wholemeal bread make wittier comments on today's society

Hugh rates it 3/5
All in all a pretty average effort. "Back Then " is pretty awesome though. At least its on obese records-"fatter then your mama".

btrail rates it 5/5
This is a mad album, didnt really get into it when i first bought it but after a few listens i found my favorite songs and they are, no 2 chechin gorilla, no 5 with Hilltops This is for life, no 6 what would happen, no 7 fuckin wit pegz and no 13 living on earth dope song. this is a wicked album good production and and performance. pegz is wicked owner of obese and as someone said the godfather of aussie hip hop, he is doin it for the luv of the music and supporting the artists to the max. PROPS PEGZ...... you get 5

Sharni rates it 3/5
Only heard the first few tracks...a girls got to sleep...but they were awesome...Aussie hip hop is happen and its great to listen and hear things so relatable to your own life and memories....lovin it

Tom rates it 1/5
Highly un-original, smacks far too much of the Hilltop Hoods or 1200 Techniques.

miq rates it 4/5
this is album is dope fresh. like a cold mango.
