Robert Hunter was once know as the hard man of the local hip hop scene. Like rock stars in the past, hard drinking and drug taking went hand in hand with the music, and nobody went harder than Huntz.
When Hunter was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2009, the last thing he expected was the huge outpouring of respect and support from the music scene he helped to build. Fans and big name artists alike rallied for the fundraising campaign Heat for Huntz, raising thousands of dollars for Hunter and his four year old son Marley.
Now aged 35 and unsure what his future holds Hunter has traded booze for daily cancer fighting juices and is working on four concurrent albums, including a compilation fundraising album supporting supporting children with cancer. He raps philosophically on youtube about his fight, tweets daily about hip hop and his medical battle, and gives candid interviews about his music, his past, and his newfound lover of being sober. As one man battles for just a little more time on the planet, an underground musical community emerges to support him.

Two of Perths veteran MC’s from the mighty Syllabolix Crew combine to deliver probably the most outstanding foray into rap music in recent history. Never have two artists battled against such overwhelming odds and risen above all expectation, low as they may be, to shine like two beacons of hope in a world full of disappointment and blandness passed off as original music. They are to be held in the greatest of esteems and heralded as the second coming of rap. Ressurected Messianic figures who bring joy to the masses, wisdom to the unenlightened, hope to the hopless and on occasion booze to the party, but dont count on it. In fact you can disregard the last statement. Or maybe not. Hunter and Mortar bring you Fear and Loathing!
