Whisper is the triple threat. He’s an experienced emcee and producer, plus, the boy can sing! Whisper has been steadily producing beats for over 7 years and rapping for over 10, but he has only just begun to unleash his melodic vocal stylings, at the insistence of those who have worked with him.
In 2005, hip-hop crew Equills, consisting of Whisper, and his partners in crime, Mantra and DJ Wax Vandal, released an LP The New Threat to wide critical acclaim. The New Threat shows Whisper’s talent as, not only an emcee, but as a producer, with a large proportion of the beats being Whisper productions. Equills played at many festivals, such as, Livid and Kiss My Grass, and shared the stage with artists such Looptroop, Hilltop Hoods, Bliss N Eso and The Roots. Following the success of The New Threat, Whisper was inspired to pursue other creative projects – and to complete a degree in design – but has not ruled out a future Equills album.
Right now, Whisper is concentrating on his solo release with a possible release date mid next 2011. A few days ago, Whisper dropped a mixtape titled The Free Album.
The Free Album is 10 cracking tracks featuring some of Australia’s top emcees including 13th Son, A-Diction and Mantra. You can check The Free Album below and also download in 320kbs glory.
