MC KREWD proves that comedy does have a place in Hip Hop with her single “Single Mother Malady”

I’ve always been a firm believer that comedy has as much of a place in music as it does in Film. That belief is rock solid after listening to up and coming Aussie Hip Hop artist MC KREWD’s wittily satirical track Single Mother Malady.

If Kath & Kim did a Rap track, I have a feeling that it would sound a little like this. I mean, let’s be honest, we’ve heard enough Rap artist attempting to glamorise themselves and put us under the illusion that they’re baller deities. It was about time an artist shattered the illusion. MC KREWD absolutely obliterated it with her sense of humour.

MC KREWD’s approach to Hip Hop may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but artists so unapologetically bold and expressive will always have a place on the airwaves.

To fully appreciate Single Mother Malady, watching the official music video which premiered on April 30th, 2020 is a must. You can check it out for yourselves via YouTube.

    It’s my personal opinion that Hip Hop needs to have a few things going for it, firstly it needs to uplift the poor and down trodden, second you need to be able to rap, and third it has to be a good song.
    This is a perfectly good skit, more power to you, but in my humble opinion this is not Hip Hop.
    If anyone can explain to me how this relates in any way to the Universal Hip Hop Culture im all ears.
    I don’t mind people making fun of Hip Hop but as Tyler Durden said sticking feathers up your butt doesn’t make you a chicken.

    I love how art is what me make of it. Taking the norm and twisting it. Taking stereotypes and turning up the notch. This is such an awesome parody while still being a banger of a hip hop song.
