The idea of hometown pride rides deeper than most in Tasman’s music: everything he does is indebted to the community that raised him, to the idea of giving back and carrying on the storytelling traditions of his family. For a small town on New South Wales’ mid-North Coast most commonly recognised for housing one of the country’s most notorious missions and… most shameful history, Tasman is attempting to write a new history through his music, reclaiming pride by lifting up and giving back. His skills as a rapper have already made him impossible to ignore as a leader of Australia’s hip hop resurgence, but Tasman’s message and his storytelling are quickly making him into an essential artist, a wholly indispensable new voice in the conversation.
About this track...
Produced by Kapital J & Papertoy with additional production from James Mangohig & Michael Hohnen, ’BILLY BAD AGAIN’ trades slyly menacing verses for an audacious, trunk-rattling chorus, with Tasman’s razor-sharp, Pusha T-evoking flow. ‘BILLY BAD AGAIN’ feels strong and streetwise, exuding a quiet, don’t-mess-with-me confidence. “No one catching up to me”, Tasman sings on the chorus. And you believe him.
