When it comes to hip hop there isn’t much The Tongue hasn’t done; an MC Battle champion; an accomplished touring artist and songwriter with two albums; three mixtapes and an EP under his belt.. all before he turned 26.
Having toured with the likes of Public Enemy, Dizzie Rascal, Drapht and The Herd, The Tongue connected with the masses via radio hits such as The Punch, Bad Education, The Show and Real Thing. His second album Alternative Energy was feature album on both FBi and 2SER, as well asAlbum of the Week at Drum Media and The Brag. His latest release The Sextape will be a free mixtape available for download September 12th, 2011.
Under the guiding hand of Sydney’s premier independent label Elefant Traks, The Tongue continues to spread his music across the nation, playing festivals such as The Big Day Out, Good Vibrations, Come Together, Peats Ridge, Sydney Festival and many others. His style of thought-provoking (but dance-inducing) hip hop continues to win over audiences across Australia….only time will tell what this boundary-pushing artist will come up with next.
The Sextape is 13 raunchy tracks of straight up hip hop. The Sextape also features some of your sexiest friends including Seven, Nick Lupi (Spit Syndicate), Bias B, Ellesquire, Toe-Fu and Omar Musa. Grab it now by following the link below.
