Rapaport - FAM

Rapaport - FAM
Joel Rapaport is a 33yr old hip hop MC, guitarist and producer; co-founder and managing director of Big Village Records; the creator and director of improvised hip hop and art theatre show, ‘Sketch The Rhyme’; and the founder and manager of hip hop music education organisation, ‘School of Rap’.

Rapaport delivers his self-effacing, neurotic lyrics with UK grime-influenced intensity and the signature groove and precision of 90’s boom bap. His diverse beats are inspired by hip hop, UK bass, soul, African groove, garage and grime.

He has released two singles from his forthcoming album: “What I Got” produced by Ribongia in September 2016 and “FAM” ft P.Smurf in March 2017. “What I Got” was nominated at FBi’s SMAC awards for Best Song of 2016 and was added to FBi Radio rotation. Rapaport’s forthcoming album Village Idiot will be released in September 2017.

Rapaport released his debut album Laughing on The Inside in 2009 and released Listening Party in 2012 as a member of hip hop trio Loose Change, with Ellesquire and P.Major. The single “Shoosh” was added to Triple J Rotation and the group won Triple J Unearthed’s NIDA video competition in 2013.

About this track...

“FAM” chronicles Rapaport’s stress and struggles as an artist and label manager, while highlighting the importance of friendship and integrity. “FAM” sees the two current owners and managers of Big Village weave music business tales with humour and light-hearted banter, matching the intensity of Arctic’s slamming beat.
