tumi

we have been to the us and europe for a while now, let's go to other continents– what's up africa! what's up australia!

honestly, i can not tell you much about australian wax, but i know a few dope releases. and pretty much anything i know comes from nuff said records, which is run by the australian rap veteran prowla. i bought this ep in '02, just when it dropped and i love it since then. it features an mc called tumi, with its very smooth rhyme style.

"Born in exile in Tanzania in 1981, Tumi returned to Soweto, South Africa in 1992. Formerly known as MC Fatboy, Tumi Molekane is an MC/Poet who has done countless work on the Johannesburg hip-hop scene.

2002 saw the vinyl/CD release of his EP "A Dream Led to this" on Nuffsaid Recordings in Australia, as well as further cooperations with Australian MC/Producer Prowla."

TUMI "A DREAM LED TO THIS" EP '02

1. A DREAM LED TO THIS
2. THE INNER VIEW
3. IVONNE
4. SHE - SPIRIT FANCIES
5. PEOPLE OF THE LIGHT





the combination of tumi's raps and prowlas and plutonic lab's beats fit fantastic! each track is hot!! i'm not sure how hard it is to find a copy these days, but keep your eyes open.

hopefully more australian releases show up on this space in the future.


enjoy!

Tumi is nasty truly a great lyricist beyond his years,he has a band called Tumi and The Volume they released an album a few years back which i dropped on TheCrypt and as well as the most amazing live record called Live @ The Bassline i'd highly suggest everyone gets it any way you can

First track is best for me, sounds like good U.S. underground. Good beats and scratch (I don't understand lyrics, because I'm Russian, but I hope it's good too). Thanks.
