Who are your 3-5 favourite Australian artists?
Midnight Oil, Men at Work, Kylie Minogue, Def Wish Cast and me.

What are your 3-5 most played Australian releases?
Sleekism, Basic Equipment and Rodney Rude

What do you think is the most influential Australian music release and why?
There is no one most influential Australian music release especially coming from a hip hop background. Australian hip hop is still finding its feet.

Which Australian performer (past or present) would you most like to work with?
Kylie, it'd be hard work, I don't if she would handle my raps but I'd go off on one of her songs.

Describe your most memorable Australian music moment?
Releasing Sleekism my first album in 1997 and then hearing on Triple J rotation.

What are your three favourite music websites?
I don't spend much time on the computer unless it's playing Warcaft 3.

What, where and when was the first local gig you attended?
Young Talent Time at about 8 years old at the Entertainment Center.

Can you tell a story behind your latest release?
Yeah you should see the clip. Tell me how you think I look in drag.

What is the most important issue facing Australian music?
Australian hip hop needs some serious consideration and a lot of the older people running the Australian music industry have rock background and don't understand it. They should listen to their kids more.
