The friend Tommy Rock invited me to come along and sit in on an interview he was conducting with the almighty Hilltop Hoods for his radio show Hardcore Classic (www.hardcoreclassic.com)
It was cool to see an interview between some people who had walked several of the same roads and shared a history that has brought Hip Hop music in Australia to a place where one group can make an album accompanied by an orchestra...again.
It was cool when Suffa described day in 1994 (the best year of his life!) when he came to Sydney from Adelaide and spent a day with the original members of Aus Hip Hop pioneers; Def Wish Cast.
Later, we attended the listening party of the Hoods' new offering Drinking From the Sun, Walking Under Stars Restrung at the Universal Music offices in Sydney.
We couldn't hear anything the album due to the polite chit - chat of the music industry, but shenanigans did ensue, free beer was drunk and new friends were made.
I bought the album this morning - and man oh man. HUGE!
In the words of Molly Meldrum - "Do yourself a favour..."
