Tenda McFly Zii Music Band of Brothaz Rap Melbourne Spoken Word

Episode 58 – Rap, Rhyme & Reason with Tenda McFly & Ziimusic

What IS spoken word?

I interview Melbourne rapper/poets Tenda McFly and Ziimusic about their writing and creative processes. We discuss everything from vulnerability, to narcissism to belief in self. Then we briefly debate if being a good writer is a divine gift or something anyone can learn. I really enjoyed chatting to these guys and this episode includes some of their fabulous original rap songs – but of course!

  • Intro songLavish by Tenda McFly
  • Middle song (time stamp – 8:46) – A Place Called Self by Ziimusic
  • Outro song (time stamp – 42:34) – Love x Sobriety by Tenda McFly

Side note: Tenda and Zii are voicing two characters in my radio play JoYOLO. Chapters 2 and 3 are airing next week – very excited! If you haven’t heard Chapter 1 yet, it’s Episode 40 on this podcast – http://taku.com.au/joyolo-chapter-1-different-dance/. Thank you to Maddy Mac and PBS FM for the studio love!
