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.
