With Tyler, the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt coming to town on June 7th, Melbourne get to experience two of the best hip-hop and rap artist today.
Tyler and Earl is part of Odd Future (Frank Ocean is also from the same group) , a hip-hop collective from the USA and probably one of the most talked about artists in the most recent memory.
Tyler's work has been impressive, like his namesake, he creates. From acting, producing, designing directing, and of course, rapping. His music is known to be dark, like his famous song titles Yonkers and his most recent one IFHY
Fresh from an amazing performance at Coachella, Earl Sweatshirt is also equally a hip-hop prodigy. This 19-year-old man taught himself to rap and create music. His song Chum, is one of the most talk about rap songs right now. Also his song WHOA, really shows off his skill in writing lyrics and rhymes.
The two rappers bring a different side of hip-hop, a young and fresh side that is not overflowed by "swag" and "bling-bling"
Hip-Hop is not dead. These two are bringing it back, with its meaningful and playful lyrics, smooth flow and original styles. Plus. they're known to go wild on the stage.
It's good to see that Melbourne's music scene is getting more and more diverse.
