Hilltop Hoods in London | http://bit.ly/Mh39Yu
Australian Hip-Hop group Hilltop Hoods spoke with Ryan Maxwell of Hip-Hop Kings in an exclusive new interview during their tour of the U.K. Hilltop Hoods are asked about the new album “Drinking from the Sun” and their personal favourite tracks from the album. Hilltop Hoods also speak on their collaborations with the likes of Classified, Pharoahe Monch and others, along with their real feelings on touring and the music making process. Make sure you watch our other video “Hilltop Hoods in London” on the link above, however you can watch the Hilltop Hoods interview with Hip-Hop Kings on the youtube player below.
This is the official Hilltop Hoods show recap of their performance at the Electric Ballroom in London. Performing to a sell-out crowd, Hilltop dropped a number of tracks from the new album “Drinking from the Sun” along with some classics. I was fortunate enough to meet and interview MC’s Suffa and Pressure after the event, for an exclusive interview which will be live in the forthcoming weeks. You can watch the official Hilltop Hoods in London video on the youtube player below.
There aren’t many who can compare accomplishments that Hilltop Hoods have achieved over their musical career, and that particular statement is extended by the release of the Australian Hip-Hop group’s sixth studio album “Drinking from the Sun”. The thirteen-track LP is the group’s latest offering, and debuted at #1 in the Australian Album Chart, which was the third consecutive Hilltop Hoods album to do so. Internationally known AND loved, Hilltop Hoods have once again given fans a master class in rap music, and surely another album that will stand the test of time.
The lead single “I Love It” features Sia Furler and really kicked off promotion for the album towards the end of 2011. Since then we’ve head singles “The Underground” featuring Solo and Classified, and the very popular “Speaking in Tongues” with Chali 2na. The guest appearances on the album were a perfect pick, and each artist involved has heavily contributed towards creating an excellent finished product. Another notable feature was Black Thought of The Roots on the track “Living in Bunkers”. We can’t for one second discredit Hilltop Hoods for masterminding the construction of the album and their own contribution, with or without the guest appearances we’re still listening to an album that’s head and shoulders above a LOT of other commercial releases.
