Australian hip hop, No Iggy..

Featured artist: MITUS – Australian hip hop, No Iggy..

As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist MITUS from Newcastle, Australia to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, MITUS! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

MITUS: I was originally writing as an outlet to deal with things that were happening in my life. I think I was only 13 or something? A few years ago I started taking it more seriously and the results have spike spoke door themself.

I Was told early on by an older artist to make the most of every opportunity and to not die wondering.


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I've played all over Australia for years now, hether it be my own shows or when I've opened up for artists like Xzibit or The Game. In 2013 I was meant to play a festival in the UK but my dog got sick and that was my priority.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

Pull your card, put on your ass for asking. Swear you got the brass but you aren't Nas or Rakim


What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I'm currently working on my next mixtape 'The mixtape 2'. You can find the first one across all digital platforms. The cd's of that release are long sold out you. I'm also working on my debut album which should be next year.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Ithink in 2018 you don't need to but it definitely would help to have a machine behind you. I've been offered 4 record deals In my time but none of them were right for me.

Any last words?

Shout outs to the FR crew and all the fam riding with me over this long fucking journey.

Where can people follow you to stay up-to-date?
