Hip Hop charity album released in time for Christmas
Just over a month after legendary Perth hip hop artist and SBX crew member Robert Hunter’s passing, the long awaited Australian Hip Hop Supports CanTeen compilation album that he put together is due to be released on Friday the 2nd of December.
The album, which features the Hilltop Hoods, Drapht, Koolism and of course Hunter himself, has developed into a double CD album, featuring a number of established and up-and-coming Australian hip hop artists.
The 32 track various artists double album will be available in stores nationally and on iTunes internationally RRP $24.95, with 100% of the proceeds going to the not-for-profit organisation CanTeen.
Hunter passed away on Thursday the 20th of October at Murdoch Hospice, Western Australia, after a two-year battle with cancer. His mother Trish and son Marley survive him.
SBX crew member Porsah Laine, who worked with Hunter on the CanTeen compilation album said, “I was hoping that Hunter would see the completion of his amazing project, but I’m happy the pain has gone. He’s set a standard for us all to, even in the face of death, follow your passion, and always help others.”
Suffa from the Hilltop Hoods said about the album in a promotional video earlier this year that it was “Good music for a good cause, you’d kind of be a prick if you didn’t buy the album”.
SBX queen Layla said, “I feel truly honoured to be a part of this quality release, supporting such an important cause.”
Executive music producer Dazastah said, “It’s a mammoth album to listen to but it’s awesome, it has got a really good vibe about it.”
