Kick-ass podcast feature: L-FRESH The LION – Born To Stand Out.

DOWNLOAD Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast via iTunes – #230 L-FRESH the LION (hip hop artist).

 

5 years ago I had the pleasure of kickin’ it with L-FRESH The LION on my couch in West Melbourne, chewing the fat on Punjab, Sikh culture, meditation, music and all the simple things in life. 5 years and 221 episodes later, it brings a broad  smile to my face that L was my 9th ever Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast guest, that he’s part of my journey and I his.

And man L-FRESH has been BUSY!!! From festival appearances all over Australia, L-FRESH The LION addressed the United Nations Headquarters in New York in late 2018 and shared a stage in London with the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate, Pakistani human rights and female education activist Malala Yousafzai. 

He was also selected as an ambassador for YouTube’s Creators For Change global initiative, with his resulting video RACI$T / OUR WORLD premiering at the Tribeca TV festival in New York and accumulating close to half a million views. 

Step inside our world as we chat about the beauty of Goa (India), where he shot the music video for his latest single, ‘Born To Stand Out’, how he stays refreshed and hungry at a time where he’s never been busier, our shared love for NBA, ‘Culture Strong’ x 500K+ views and so much more.

Breaking ground and exceeding expectations is a recurring theme of this South West Sydney artist, having performed alongside hip hop icons such as Nas, Talib Kweli, Chali 2NA and Dead Prez, and even the legendary Sir Elton John, it’s wonderfully refreshing that  L-FRESH The LION remains so humble, thoughtful and community-focused.  I doff my hat to you, sir.

Ever wanted to Choose Your Own Adventure?
 
I don’t mean like in the books that you used to explore as a kid, I mean in life!
 
To turn the page and venture down a path without knowing what lies ahead, just because you think that it might get you to a place that you never even dreamed of.
 
Well, then welcome to my life… and the life of record producer & Bondi Beach Breakfast host on Bondi Beach Radio, Boston Rodriguez.
 
Life is to be enjoyed and from an early age, this fast-talking, energetic North London lad has built a life and career out of exploration.
 
Whether it be writing/presenting nationwide radio music documentaries whilst living in New Zealand, opening up the eyes and world of Kingston’s youth whilst working as an art auctioneer in Jamaica or his London  journey from star music student to record producer, the life of Boston Rodriguez is one of Choose Your Own Adventure and it is truly my pleasure to bring that adventure to you!

Krafty Kuts + Chali 2NA (Jurassic 5) launch brand new track ‘It Ain’t My Fault” in Bondi Beach!

119 Krafty Kuts + Chali 2NA from Jurassic 5 live in Bondi

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST – #119 Krafty Kuts + Chali 2NA from Jurassic 5 live in Bondi. 

3pm on Friday, my friend AJ from Central Station Records drops me a line…
 
“We have Krafty Kuts & Chali 2na (Jurassic 5) launching their brand new single ‘It Ain’t My Fault’ at the Beach Road Hotel in Bondi this Wednesday 1st of March…” can we hook up an interview on Bondi Beach Radio?
 
Yes, yes and yes… 
 
So AJ sends me through a couple of pressers (press releases) and a copy of the brand new single “It Ain’t My Fault” and then come Monday morning, I find myself in the boardroom at Central Station Records in Sydney for a 2:1 chat with Kraft Kuts and Chali 2na. Awesome!
 
Our vast ranging chats cover Krafty Kuts’ earliest ever memory from his childhood of the family cat in Kingston upon Thames in the UK and Chali’s memories of his 2nd birthday in the projects of south-side Chicago, the pleasures of working with Dynamite MC and Chali 2na to bring this jam to life, our shared experiences of the inspiration of hip hop street art in Miami, Rome, Montpellier, Belgium and their 2 pieces of advice that Krafty Kuts and Chali 2na give to someone who has a dream, but is afraid to take that first step.
 
As Krafty tells it, studying your art and creating magic is all about practicing your art form to hone yourself into the best at what you do and I felt that myself even during this interview, as while I usually capture what I need in hour long shows that I’ve been recording for 2.5 years, we made this shit work in 25 minutes. 
 
I’ll be heading down to their show Beach Road Bondi as part of the global ‘Hands High’ Tour tonight (Wednesday night 1st of March) for sure!
 
Stoked to be able to launch “It Ain’t My Fault” by Krafty Kuts & Dynamite MC featuring Chali 2na of Jurassic 5 on my show on Bondi Beach Radio and you can download the interview right here, right now on iTunes.
 
These two gentleman are consummate professionals, super enigmatic and downright lovely… And maaaaaaannnn… this jam is GOLD!

Breaking down cultural barriers – ‘Through These Eyes’ – with hip hop artist, Zii.

Super sweet & inspiring podcast hangs with rapper, Zii
Super sweet & inspiring podcast hangs with rapper, Zii

Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet podcast series

“Wealth is an investment in other people, rather than the the riches that you have back home

From Harare, Zimbabwe to Melbourne suburbia, trail blazer and hip hop artist Zii is a man who just lights up the room with his outlook, energy and positivity.

The son of a Nobel Peace Prize winner, Zii arrived in Australia from Africa 10 years ago to pursue a career in IT and whilst mentoring a young fellow church-goer, fell in love with music himself and began pursuing the dream.

I am privileged to meet fascinating people on a weekly basis through the Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet podcast and this one left me feeling truly inspired and with a renewed determination to strive to be a better man… we spend today’s podcast chatting openly about culture, race, religion and music… the distinct cultural and behavioural differences of how Australians interact with each other as opposed to people from the country of his birth, ‘Through These Eyes’ – an inspiring EP and project that Zii’s created to educate, challenge and change Australian perceptions and understanding of the African continent, being empowered and fuelled by his parent’s integrity and belief and inspired to greatness by Grammy Award winning American rapper, Lecrae.

Whilst we are from vastly different cultures and backgrounds, Zii’s story resonated with me and his perspective on life mirrors my own. This was the first time we’d met but I am now left buzzing with energy and excitement…. 

The key to breaking down barriers and understanding our fellow man no matter what their religion, race or creed is all about the desire to make world a better place by inviting people to be a part of your community, asking the right questions and seeking to make a connection.

Enjoy!
