The Tongue - The Rule

The Tongue - The Rule
Spanning a career over 10 years, The Tongue is widely regarded as one of the country’s most imaginative MCs—with a natural charisma that sets him apart from the horde of anonymous rappers.

'Shock & Awe', his ambitious debut album cemented his place in the local hip hop landscape with hits such as ‘Real Thing’.

His second album, Alternative Energy saw a more progressive and mature approach, with favourites ‘The Show’ and ‘Crazy’ featuring heavily on radio.

'Surrender To Victory', saw The Tongue coming into his own as artist and collaborator, articulating a positive vision beyond the confines of modern Australian hip hop.

The Tongue has been known to release wildly diverse mixtapes in between albums – which have brought us the likes of Redux, The Tongue Is Dead and the Sextape.

Released nationally on November 20th, his 4th studio album Hard Feelings is the combined effort of both The Tongue and rising Sydney producer Papertoy. Guests on the album include: Ngaiire, Jeswon (Thundamentals), Ev Jones (Jones Jnr), Thom Crawford and Mataya. Tongue proves himself to be in his prime as both a lyricist and performer as he deconstructs life’s complexities with wit, style and a pinch of humour.

About this track...

'The Rule' is the last song on 'Hard Feelings' is captures the idea of self-preservation and believing in yourself. 'I'm giving you my life on the mic' suggests the revealing nature of this song. Discussing the lack of leadership in this country and what that is doing to us.
