First single Everything, released July, went about cutting a swathe through alternative radio. Tue Aug16th and became the 4th most downloaded track on Australian radio through AMRAP’s AIRIT, where it has also spent 6 straight weeks in the top 5 tracks on the AIR IT Hip Hop chart.
With strong Australian Aboriginal, Tongan & South Sea Island family roots, Rival Mc’s lyrics are a journey through the mind of contemporary Aboriginal Australia, addressing not only issues facing his people, but more to the point, Australian society and the global community in general. A socially conscious attitude that speaks volumes, triple J has described Impossible Odds as "ferociously intelligent... Fred Leone quips with the informed subtlety of Kev Carmody and spits with a visceral slag like Henry Rollins's. 'Cept hip-hoppier with specifically Aussie concerns."
“Against All Odds” covers a lot of ground. From battle raps to faith, facebook to musicality and of course Indigenous identity, as seen through the eyes of somebody who gives a damn about all of it.
