Back when i was a young pup coming up kids where battle crazy & there was fierce local & interstate rivalry that produced somewhat of a golden era for oz hip hop & helped grow the scene to the place it is today. It seems to me that organized battles are a bit thin on the ground these days in Sydney but we can always rely on the Revolver MC Championship down in Melbourne to keep those undefeated veterans on their toes. Past title holders include such greats as The Tongue (NSW), Bias B (VIC), Justice (VIC) and Delta (SA).
The winner prize pack is valued at over $8,000, and consists of cash plus a flight voucher, goods from sponsors including McKenna Bourban, Revolver Upstairs, Triple R, All Of The Above, Burn Crew, Chapel Tattoo, Colonel Tan’s, Factory Sound, Final Outline, Fur, Implant, Inpress, Madman, Obese, Ozhiphop, Razor Paint, Seven Milligram and Sneaker Freaker.
On the night the MC Comp will be hosted by legendary Aussie rapper Bias B, with beats supplied by the legendary DJ Ransom. So head down on Thursday 17th September to Revolver Upstairs and support the battle with doors opening at 8pm. If you think you’ve got it? the judges want to hear what you’ve got.. If you are interested in entering the Comp download a form from www.revolverupstairs.com.au.

Anyone who knows me is probably aware of my insanely impressive basketball card collection & nothing in my collection is more treasured than my 5 pages of Michael Jordan's. So when Upper Deck & Shepard Fairey collaborated on the latest king of hoops poster which will most likely be released only through Upper Deck’s website and will most likely be signed by BOTH Shep and MJ i got excited as a 13 year old with a Jordan rookie.
Its been a minute since my boy Peach debuted with Mailer Daemon on the banging Keep On Movin' joint & now he has backed it up with the BEEF & TRIPE MIXTAPE. With help from the mega boss at the bank FAME he has put together a smooth, egoless & humble tape with a strong Sydney vibe that is is yours free if ya hit the link.
