Melbourne rapper 360 joins the Soulmate Records family
5 February, 2007: The rumours are true â€“ Melbourne rap phenomenon 360 has been confirmed as the latest signing to Soulmate Records.
360, best known as one half of controversial hip-hop duo Forthwrite, will release his long-awaited debut solo album What You See Is What You Get through Soulmate in 2007.
Although renowned by hip-hop audiences for his hilarious put-downs and reckless attitude, the gifted 20-year-old emcee claims his debut long-player will reveal many as-yet-unseen sides to his personality.
â€œThis album will show people that there is more than one side to 360 â€“ Iâ€™m still that funny, cocky guy youâ€™ve heard about, but Iâ€™ve also got thoughts, opinions and emotions to get off my chest through my music,â€ 360 said.
â€œIâ€™m not just rapping over beats for the sake of it either; these are real songs that will mean something to all sorts of different audiences.
â€œAs a label, Soulmate is young and hungry like me and I know that together, we can make a big impact on the music industry with this project.â€
Joining 360 on What You Seeâ€¦ are his Forthwrite partner Pez and such world-class producers as M-Phazes (Royce Da 5â€™9â€, Bliss N Eso), Styalz Fuego (Chamillionaire, Kool G Rap), Canadaâ€™s Muneshine (Pete Rock, Beatnuts) and 2006 Australian Music Prize nominee Joelistics (TZU).
One of the biggest stars of Australiaâ€™s underground mixtape scene, 360 has recorded tracks alongside 2x ARIA Award nominees Weapon X & Ken Hell and local hip-hop legends Lyrical Commission, as well as providing live support to such luminaries as Atmosphere (USA), Brother Ali (USA) and DJ Peril (1200 Techniques).
