Street Art Not Vandalism One

Greetings one and all,

Back in March 2009 we were asked to bring some cameras along to Robinson Reserve - West Preston, Melbourne for an event called STREET ART NOT VANDALISM ONE. The local council had donated a wall and writers were given paint to transport artistic visions from their mind to the cement wall for all to enjoy.

While the air was filling with the intoxicating aroma of spray paint fumes, a who's who of emerging Aussie hip hop talent were blessing frequencies with their diverse styles.

As the sun went down the party moved to a bar where a room was awaiting re-decoration and a huge line up of Australian, UK and USA hip hop artists gathered to grace the stage.

Here's a little taste of the event...

First up is SETH SENTRY dropping a phat rhyme over an old school break, reminiscent of the classic ALKAHOLIKS track, 'ONLY WHEN I'M DRUNK', proving that you can't beat the timeless appeal of the so-called "golden era" of hip hop.

The next installment is from one of UK's finest hip hop groups, NINE HIGH, with mc SCOTTY HINDS killing it with his solo rendition of their hit 'FUGS NEED HUGS'. Two of NINE HIGH's mc's (FRAKSHA & SCOTTY) relocated to Melbourne two years ago and have been blowing up the scene with their relentlessly dope UK stylings.

Be sure to check back in for more installments and news on the upcoming STREET ART NOT VANDALISM TWO.
