Media Release Sept 2011-Australian Hip Hop Supports CanTeen

Top Australian Hip Hop artists to release a music
compilation album to support cancer charity CanTeen

The Australian Hip Hop community has united in support of Robert Hunter AKA Huntz, veteran artist and member of the infamous Syllabolix Crew, to release a compilation of never before heard tracks on an album titled „Australian Hip Hop Supports CanTeen‟ due for release towards the end of this year.

Featuring the Hilltop Hoods, Drapht, Downsyde, Koolism, Bias B, Hermitude, and of course Hunter along with several yet to be announced acts, this album truly epitomises the best on offer of all things Hip Hop in this country.
The album will be in stores and available for download in time for Christmas with 100% of the profits from album sales going to CanTeen, the charity that supports children living with cancer.

After being diagnosed in November 2009, Australian old school Rapper Hunter, felt there was something he could do for children living with cancer. He approached his friends in the industry to contribute a song for an album and enlisted MGM The Groove Merchants to distribute the album at no cost.

Hunter is a talented artist and avid supporter of Australian Hip-Hop and although very ill with neuroendocrine cancer, his passion and dedication has not waned and he is keen to make as much impact as possible both musically and for the cause that has supported him so absolutely throughout his battle with the illness.

“It seemed like a natural thing for me „cos I knew a lot of people making Australian Hip Hop,” says Hunter. “Hip Hop can be very inspirational and hopefully we can sell enough CD‟s and iTunes to make money to do something cool for the kids”.

Hunter says; “When I was young I never got sick, I partied, I had a great time, these kids are missing out on that and it doesn‟t seem fair so I figured I could raise money and they could have a good time”.

We are seeking a naming rights sponsor for full integration and alignment with this release. Expressions of interest are encouraged and welcomed.
