I love creating, that’s pretty much it. Painting, photography, type, design and architecture all float my boat so this blog will be filled with images that reflect the things I like. Hope you enjoy my time here.

Cozzabags Boganics

POSTED BY jonas ON 07 JUL 2011 @ 06:24 PM


I'm not one to listen to much hip-hop these days, especially anything that has been released recently. But my mate Cozzabags (an Aussie living in London) has just fulfilled a long time dream and actually recorded a hip-hop album. I kid you not... he used Samples from music and comedy most of us would have heard growing up. Seriously, when was the last time you heard Kevin Bloody Wilson? He calls it "a tribute to all 80s and 90s stuff", which these days is the preferred chunk of music I like to listen to along with a pinch of 70's stuff. If you want to hear a few tracks that might even make you laugh here's a link to the whole album for FREE. Track 2 "Fire" is a personal favorite  ;)

His deets for the info seekers.
Originally from Melbourne’s Eastern suburbs Cozzabags was a part of the city’s vibrant graffiti scene in the 90’s and 00’s. He also DJ’d in small Melbourne clubs during the burgeoning Hip Hop scenes earliest days. His first influences were Funk, US Hip Hop and seeing local punk & hardcore bands perform in community halls in Melbourne’s outer East. His unusual influences are often reflected in his music whilst still giving a tip of the cap to Old-School Hip Hop.

Lyrically Cozzabags is poignant, often cynical but always earnest. Whilst some tracks delve into the political arena, the general sound is brash, upbeat and a light hearted take on things, but if Cozzabags’s influences tell any kind of story it’s just beats ‘n’ rhymes. It’s apologetically Australian and it was born in London.

He's also made a video for the track "Better than you" which is on Youtube here, it's a big diss to Hollywood, people making fun of celebrities always makes me laugh, I'm so cruel.
