Hardcore Classic Radio

Every Thursday night from 10PM Sydney time you can tune into 100.3fm to hear Tom Rock and the crew from Hardcore Classic as they play some of the dopest hip hop from Australia and abroad. The sorta hip hop you find on their playlists wont be found on most other radio stations and are well worth a listen to for any hip hop head. Last week Tom asked me to choose five of my favourite tracks from five of my favourite albums for the 'Facebook 5s' that he had going. To go with this post I've uploaded the short 10 minute segment where these tracks were played. I hope you enjoy the selection, and make sure to peep the show at any given opportunity!

To stream or show and more info check the
Hardcore Classic website.

Tech N9ne - Sickology 101

After dropping what to me was on of the top releases of 2008 ('Killer'), the Kansas City King Tecca Nina is back once more. This time he's back with another 'collabo's album, in the same vein as 'Misery Loves Kompany'. 'Sickology 101' is due to drop on the 28th of April and features a host of top draw artists, both from the Strange Music camp and elsewhere. I'm fiending for this release as I reckon Tech's up there in the top handful of rappers doing their thing right now. To find out more info check out the Tech N9ne myspace, which also has 'Nothin' off of the upcoming album. Here's the title track off of the album, a track that features Crooked I and Chino XL.... what a SICK line up!
