Post Malone Announces Special Guests For Upcoming Australian Tour

Post Malone Will Be Joined By Special Guests Jaden Smith & Tyla Yaweh Tour Kicks Off Later This Month!

In less than one month’s time American megastar, POST MALONE will commence his whopping big 10-date Australian arena tour, starting off at Perth’s RAC Arena on Friday, April 26 before making his way to Adelaide’s AEC Arena, followed by three nights at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, two shows at Brisbane Entertainment Centre and three final performances at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena on May 7, 8 and 9.

PM-RLA-600x600

In preparation, our dearly beloved “Posty”, the Grammy nominated, history-making, multi-platinum selling superstar, has today confirmed that JADEN SMITH and TYLA YAWEH will join him across all Australian tour dates – taking the excitement levels of fans right across the country up a notch, or two.

Final tickets for all shows are on sale now.

Last spotted ringing up customers groceries at Woolies in Melbourne just last month, fashion icon, talented actor and musician, JADEN SMITH, returns down under to join Post Malone on his Australian tour dates. Making his big screen acting debut in “The Pursuit of Happyness” in 2006 starring opposite his father, Smith’s performance won him an MTV Movie Award in 2007 for “Breakthrough Performance” and gathered universal acclaim for his nuanced and heartwarming performance. In November 2017, Smith released his album “SYRE” via his own MSFTS Music/Roc Nation label. The album debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Rap Chart, Hip Hop / R&B Chart and as #23 on the Billboard 200 and recently surpassed 100 million streams on Spotify worldwide. Smith was named one of TIME’s ‘Top 30 Influential Teens’ of 2017 and one of Pandora’s Artists to Watch of 2018. Smith dropped his album “Cool Tapes Vol. 2” in November 2014 exclusively on his app; Jaden Experience.

The app is the first to be released in a new platform that allows artists to distribute their music directly to their fans creating an album-like experience through a dedicated platform. Next up Smith will release his latest album ERYS in the top of Q2. Serving as the face of Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection, Smith’s greatest endeavor has been his own clothing/lifestyle brand, MSFTSrep. Smith is a passionate advocate for a cleaner world and has been honored for his leadership and action on environmental issues, which includes cofounding ‘JUST Water’, the most environmentally conscious, commercially sold water bottle.

With a rockstar attitude and a creative wingspan that encompasses pop, rap and R&B, TYLA YAWEH has rocketed to ubiquity in a relatively short period of time, bringing his diverse spate of tracks to life with Post Malone while on tour with him across the UK and USA. His debut project “Heart Full of Rage”, released February 2019, was the culmination of bottling up emotions while on the road and capturing those sentiments on a 10-track collection of songs that are introspective and insightful, matched by a club-ready sound. His recent success may be a blur, but it’s been a gradual ascent for Yaweh. Growing up in Florida, his family life exposed him to everything from church music to area rappers like Lil Boosie and Trick Daddy. He began performing at only 14 years of age and after his first track ‘Alone’ took flight on a file-sharing site “Hulkshare” Yaweh was tasting the beginnings of where is career might be headed. After moving to California on a dollar and a dream, nineteen year old Yaweh caught the attention of managers Tes Siyoum and Bobby Greenleaf, as well as Post Malone’s manager Dre London, setting his career on a slingshot path ever since.

Post Malone stirs hip-hop, R&B, and alternative into his own sonic “sauce” that’s both intoxicating and invigorating. His recipe has yielded massive success so far. The Dallas native grew up listening to his dad’s Metallica, Johnny Cash, UGK, and The Notorious B.I.G. records before trading his Guitar Hero controller for an electric guitar at eleven-years-old. After releasing his first mixtape as a recent high school graduate, he packed up and headed west to Los Angeles.

Then came “White Iverson”. The response proved overwhelming and before he knew it, the budding star had Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller tweeting him, Complex, Noisey, The Fader, and Hypebeast singing his praises, 14 incendiary SXSW performances under his belt, and major labels knocking at his door. His uncanny ability to cook up a 21st century “sauce” of genres transformed the multi-platinum Dallas, TX maverick into the “#1 Debut Hip-Hop Artist of 2016,” following the release of his RIAA double-platinum certified full-length debut album, “Stoney”.

His sophomore release “beerbongs & bentleys” arrived in early 2018 and broke Spotify’s streaming records, clocking up more than 78.7 million streams on its release day – crushing the previous mark set by Drake’s “More Life” with a comparable 61.3 million hits – and consequently set fire to chart records everywhere, including one held by The Beatles since 1964. With “beerbongs & bentleys” string of bonafide hits including ‘Psycho’ and ‘Rockstar’, the latter of which hit No.1 on the ARIA Singles Chart, went four-times platinum and accumulated over 1 billion streams on Spotify.

Posty has captivated and totally infatuated Australian fans, proven further by the overwhelming response for tickets and the five additional tour dates added shortly after initially going on sale – this is set to be one of the biggest hip-hop tours of 2019 and one not to be missed!

“Dream big, chase that, dig deep ‘cause I live for the lottery.” Talakai enters 2019 on the same high he left 2018, with a huge and heavy release.

Lottery, features dirty, dense production and heavy lyrics however, in Lottery Talakai brings the bounce, with an echoing, resonating hook which carries an underlying message of persistence and positivity.

After touring late 2017 off the back of the “Get Bodied” viral video series Talakai has been on the come up, playing sold out shows around the country and making cheeky appearances on Triple J’s Hip Hop show.

Far from the young kid coming up locally in the Newcastle scene Talakai has taken the movement nationally, oozing bravado and lyricism to rival the countries best. Gearing up for a huge 2019, Talakai sets his sights on the top with his debut EP in the works. With 2019 off to a blazing start, you can catch Talakai supporting ChillinIt on his sold out  The Ashes “Women Weed and Wordplay” Tour throughout March, April and May.

Red Bull Music Continues ’64 Bars’ Rap Series, Shares Second Episode With B Wise

Red Bull Music continues its studio rap series ‘64 Bars’, sharing a second Australian episode with South West Sydney rapper, B Wise. The series showcases 64 bars of razor-sharp raps – no bells, no whistles, no hooks from trailblazing artists.

First created at Red Bull Studios, Auckland, ‘64 Bars’ recently launched in Australia with an episode from Brisbane independent artist, Jesswar. Grounded and deep-thinking, B Wise jumps into the ‘64 Bars’ booth to deliver sharp-witted verses with a meaningful message. Following last year’s acclaimed debut album Area Famous, that was recently named FBi SMAC Record of the Year – B Wise has leapt from strength to strength, sitting at the forefront of the local hip-hop landscape with hard-earned perspective and experience.

The 64 Bars project was first founded at Red Bull Studios Auckland with David Dallas, as a simple method of having handpicked MCs hit the booth and lay down 64 bars. The series launched to critical acclaim with Brooklyn-based world-renowned rapper Talib Kweli and has since travelled the globe with regular episodes from Japan and now Australia. Taking rap back to basics, 64 Bars gives audiences the chance to hear their favourite artists flex the skills that launched their careers, and places a firm eye on rap’s upcoming best voices.

Tune in to Red Bull Music & Culture for the latest episodes of 64 Bars.

Interview: Mitchos Da Menace Breaks His ‘SILENCE’

aahh: Compared to your previous two releases, how do you see ‘silence’ the album representing your evolution as an artist?
Menace: Brother, I was hoping that the fans could answer that question for me. Since you’re asking me though, you listen to the first album, the second album and then the third one. From that, you can see the evolution. It’s maturity bro. I had to mature with my life experiences and what’s going on at the moment and that is portrayed in my music. I’m the MENACE and you all know it now! MGR.

aahh: On the title track SILENCE you state that “you like silence but can’t stand it” can you elaborate further on the ideas behind this track and the title of the album?
Menace: It’s me saying I like to be alone but it’s going be the death of me… I self destruct in different terms, it means a lot on a personal level. I actually got a beat from Oagz called “Serenade Of Silence”. I made the album from that beat and that idea.

48954505_2107667019289797_312038737083105280_o.jpg

aahh: How do you see independent artists such as yourself shaping the future of hip hop in this country?
Menace: We are the future of Aus Hip-Hop. We have so many talented artists making moves. From Manu Crooks heading to the USA and us collaborating with UK artists. We have helped shape it whether people accept/or like it or not! We carve lanes and inspire people in the local scene!

aahh: There have been numerous positive comments we’ve read about the beat selection on the new LP. What was your process for choosing the beats on the album?
Menace: I’ve been in a dark place over the last year Jim. This includes stuff with my family and myself. I needed to get a lot off my chest. The beats I picked touched me, to be honest. Deep dark and melodic.

aahh: You’ve opened silence with a small intro, can you tell us more about this and how it relates to the wider concepts on the album?
Menace: In simpler terms, it means “We stay silent, if a problem arises, me and my family take care of it, we don’t speak out to others, stay silent” – Mitchos The Menace!

aahh: What’s next for Menace?
Menace: I have a really big year ahead. 2019 will change a lot of lives, I’ll be giving 100% in everything I do! Keep your eyes peeled, you might even catch us overseas! MG201L7 .

One for the club and for the car, YEAH is 4 minutes of unrelenting power. Shadow and Nerve’s respective verses embrace the 140BPM energy whilst giving it their own unique Aussie flair.Yizzy is an MC who demands attention, his rapid rise in the scene proves that he is a force to be reckoned with. A massive 2018 with the critically acclaimed ‘SOS’ EP saw Yizzy stack up several million Spotify streams and numerous end of year lists. Causing serious heat in the underground, previously collaborating with Terror Danjah, Treble Clef and Skengdo and AM, it seems there is no stopping him for 2019.

Both Shadow and Nerve are known figures on the Australian scene and recently emerging onto the global grime scene with features on the triple j show and 100’s of live shows under their belt. One of the front runners of the next generation of grime, Yizzy is pioneering not only the sound but also the changing scope of what next generation grime means.

Perth duo Otiuh are back with old-school vibes on smooth new single, ‘Move’

Perth duo Otiuh are back with their trademark funk and soul-infused hip hop and a single that is guaranteed to keep you moving all summer long. On ‘Move’, Cesare Papa and Jahmeil Baker trade spitfire verses over tripped out and eclectic production, creating a toe-tapping, head bopping, infectious jam about never taking things too seriously and never caring about what others might think. Just let go and ‘Move’.

50502925_1103216493173085_7889253434057031680_o

Fresh from having its first spin on FBi Radio’s Sunsets with Dobby & Diola as well as premiering on Purple Sneakers, Otiuh offer up a slice of something different in the Australian hip hop landscape with ‘Move’. Combining their golden age lyricism with futuristic production, marrying the influences of A Tribe Called Quest with Outkast as their poetic roots add the final flourish.

After nabbing some national radio play on triple j for their first two singles, Otiuh continues to carve out their own space on the national radar. Laidback and never taking things too seriously, Otiuh’s music is for those who want to be taken somewhere else far away, if only for a few moments. Of their new bop, the duo said, “When you’re on the dance floor, put your phone down. Dance for yourself. You don’t have anything to prove to others.”

Thanks to its driving bass line, synth flutes and exotic percussion laying down a smooth foundation for the pair to go back and forth with their rapid rhymes, ‘Move’ is one track that gets into your bones and makes you feel good from the inside out.

Otiuh enter a new chapter with ‘Move’ – one that will see them bring their alternative hip hop sounds to the fore, and have a great time while doing it.
