June is over, and we’re back with another instalment of AU Drip. So plug in, press play and check out some of the dopest that Australia has to offer right now.
Fortafy – “Virgil Drip” ft. Donell Lewis & Kennyon Brown
This is an exciting drop for the Australian Hip Hop scene. Fortafy is an OG of the scene, then you have Don and Kenny, who have been dominating since the 2010’s. The last time we had heard any bars from Fortafy was about 4 years ago, as he took some time off to launch some very successful business ventures. But this looks we may be getting a return from the OG, himself. Honestly, we are excited!
Press play, let us know what you think.
ChillinIt – “Overdrive Pt. 2”
Okay, I admit, this one wasn’t dropped in June. But, it was easily one of my dopest finds of the month. Off his latest album, titled “The Octagon”, ChillinIt brings us “Overdrive Pt. 2”. Hailing from Sydney, ChillinIt has been genuinely putting his city on the map. Overdrive Pt. 2 is , in a word, HEAVY!
Headphones must be on, and loud, for this one. The man has bars, let us know what you think of this one.
On The Gang (CV) – “6 Side”
Representing Sydney, next up is CV, of On The Gang. Put plainly, this guy can spit! 6 Side is a another dope track from this side of Australia and even though I haven’t personally listened to a lot of this crew’s material, CV has definitely grabbed my attention.
What you think? Go show the boy some love if you’re feeling this.
Jerome Farah – “I Can’t Breathe”
Melbourne’s very own Jerome Farah had to make this list. His latest release “I Can’t Breathe” is a super fresh take on the month that was June, 2020. Channeling his inner Anderson .Paak and bringing some slick vocals along with some hard bars.
This one is definitely worth a listen. Spam the boys social media and let him know what you think!
China – “Calm Down”
Finally, we have this super smooth find. Melbourne songstress, China, put out this soulful jam in May but I’m a little late to the party. If you like smooth, jazzy R&B with silky smooth vocals then this one is just for you. Now her facebook video is just a small snippet, but trust me, you should check this out!
Head over to her socials and show some love!
