Meet Kaye a.k.a Mr. Never Did Right; An all-round hip-hop junkie, expressing extraordinary talent via many artistic platforms.
Hailing from The East Coast, Kaye has lived Hip Hop for over a decade, with ventures ranging from professional graffiti murals, video production and running a home studio used by himself and other locals. His strength as a formidable emcee is undeniable, featuring on various Sub Conscious Records releases and consistently playing packed shows along the East Coast of Australia, with acts such as Thundamentals, Kerser, The Tongue and Hijak. Kaye’s high energy performances with Dj Ntapize, are backed up by frequently releases exclusive tracks on the Internet, including numerous, outlandish videos on youtube, steadily establishing a strong, eager-to-listen following.
Kaye humbly refers to himself as "A Gonzo journalist, graffiti artist, lyricist and producer."
Further focusing on his musical endeavours, Kaye unleashes his ingenious, highly anticipated double disc debut - 'The Strange and Terrible Saga of Adam Radwan'. Prepare for a 32 track journey over 2 contrasting discs - the lighter, uplifting 'Fear and Loathing in Lost Pages' & the dark, moody side of 'The Redrum Diaries'. The double disc album boasts 16 tracks on each disc, majorly influenced by the concept of Hunter S Thompson's 'Gonzo Journalism'. Both sides release a bi-polar like, extremely emotional contrast, rarely ever heard.
The topically diverse album caters for, and transcends all genres. From a dark, aggressive, esoteric style of Hip Hop (That Guy, Over Your Head), to Up Beat experimental Sample and Dub related melodies (What Did You Say, Is Est Vultus ) then on to live instrumental, based beats, with emotional orchestral overtones and warm live guitar (Mr1,Linde Manor). The album's extremely diverse content is undoubtedly approached with Kaye's phenomenal love for music, knowledge and literature. Tracks relate to suicide (Suicide Dreamers, Last Time), free thinking (Uncuff Your Brian), hallucinogenic drugs (Fear and Loathing, Hit Me), love (B.K, Lady Love) and philosophy (If You Don’t Fight You Lose), Conspiracies (Over Your Head), Depression (Lovelife, Fadeaway) and that's only the beginning...
"My personal testimony to Gonzo journalism and Hunter S Thompson. Renamed after his Biography, this album will be as manic as the man himself." - Kaye
Kaye's in-depth, breath-of-fresh-air lyrics speak for his listeners steering far away from the mainstream Hip Hop many have come to be familiar with these days.
