Juice Media channels Die Antwoord in the latest Rap News. It’s brilliant.
Forget “class warfare” and petty hooliganism. Fuck Fight Club: we can’t solve the world’s problems with the same kind of thinking that created them. Let’s hold a mirror up to those at the top of the pyramid with ART. Let’s get these guys out to the Playa.
The Melbourne-based duo Hugo and Giordano believe that “courage is contagious”.
From Media Roots:
An age-old question among activists and the media is how to grab an audience’s attention and hold it. In a society accustomed to twitter feeds, blog hosting, sound bites and news that serves to either placate viewers with entertainment or alarm them beyond reason, knowing how to engage people on serious issues can be quite the challenge.
In order to reach a culture that is over saturated with sensationalism and new technology, one thing though, is for sure– you have to be creative.
Many people would rather be mindlessly entertained than learn about depressing news. So why not use entertainment to inform the masses? Inspired to combine music and news-room journalism, two European expatriates living in Australia combined their powers of lyrically creative brilliance, comical acting and historical and political knowledge to form the eccentric character Robert Foster– host of Rap News.

Hugo and Treats performed their live show in Australia at the Eclipse2012 festival, which was attended by many Burners.

I used to believe in activism, but I’ve seen that when groups of like-minded people get together they form an echo-chamber of thought. Groups are easily infiltrated and the message gets twisted and co-opted.
My choice now is to bow out of society and enjoy the decline from a secluded location surrounded by a piranha filled moat.
that’s why I support these guys trying to wake people up to the truth with art. They’re not trying to co-opt everyone into their movement.
