NEW SYDNEY HIP HOP / SOUL | Yum Yum release debut video ‘Just Friends’ (Produced and directed by Bryce Hooper)


New Sydney music courtesy of our good friends YUM YUM.

Sydney based soul, hip hop, dub and delta blues duo Yum Yum are proud to announce the release their debut video clip Just Friends today! Just Friends is a track found off their debut EP ‘Slade Meets Jayo’ released in August 2014.

Produced and directed by Sydney videographer Bryce Hooper whose expertise extends to other local hip hop artists such as Chasm, B-Wise, Sky High featuring David Dallas and has collaborated with established director, producer and photographer Tristan Stefan Edouard on a number of projects.

Filmed in the back streets of Inner West – Marrickville – where love experienced in various manifestations is set as our backdrop for Just Friends. If you listen to the words, it is self explanatory. The idea of developing feelings beyond a friendship is something we all can relate to at some point in our lives. The music itself adds the element of questioning; slowly unveiling desires curdling beneath the surface.

“The beat that Jayo wrote was called ‘Best friends’’, yet the beat was so sultry and sexy, it had to be more than just a friendship! It’s about admiring a friend at a distance and then she’s either thinking to herself or saying out loud ‘will we ever be? I think the video captures this wondering.” explains vocalist and one half of Yum Yum, Natalie Slade.

Slade Meets Jayo EP is available now.

TOUR NEWS: Ice Cube heading to Australia to play Sydney, Melbourne & Brisbane in Dec 2014 | Hip Hop, G-Funk, Rap


Just heard this via Metropolis Touring:

The game changes and rappers come and go, but one man has remained constant – Hip-Hop Legend aka The Don Mega – the mother f***in’ ICE CUBE!

Having leaped the boundaries of the rap / hip hop world, he is known as one of the most influential and important figures in the entertainment business today. From his time as one of the driving forces behind the infamous and iconic group N.W.A, to his successful solo career and his ventures into film and television, it’s safe to say he has been there and done it all. Not forgetting his roots, Cube is still “all fire and brimstone; shouting epithets and curses, reminding us all he was once a part of a history-making hip hop team” (The Dwarf)

Possessing a brutally honest attack bolstered with proficient and violent lyrics, Ice Cube has forged a legacy spanning 25+ years.
Millions of platinum and gold album sales worldwide. Collaborating with some of Rap and Hip Hop royalty such as Public Enemy, Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Ice-T among others.

And of course his film career as a producer, actor and director of such films as Boyz In The Hood, the Friday series, Barbershop and more recently Ride Along and the Jump Street series.

Going off his past Australian performances, fans can expect an explosive show packed with the iconic and timeless rhymes such as Check Yo’ Self, It Was A Good Day, You Can Do It, Go To Church, Hello, Smoke Some Weed, Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It and NWA’s Fuck Tha Police and Straight Outta Compton as well as some fresh tracks from his new album Everything’s Corrupt.

Often imitated but never duplicated, the Hip Hop Legend is coming back down under to show and prove why he was the one who “started this gangsta shit”!
