In 2006, I created the Hip-Hop Chess Federation to teach kids chess and correlating life skills. A few years ago, a young Black female student tried to sneak past me in the lobby at John O’Connell High School where I worked as a security guard. She was late. Being the ever inquisitive security guard, I slipped into stealth mode. It was a hot morning. As she tried to skip through the lobby entrance I playfully popped outta the shadows and said “What time is it?!”

As a huge fan of the now defunct New Zealand band @peace, I was disappointed the guys euthanized the group. But I was ecstatic when one of the group’s vocalist, Tom Scott, told me they had some tricks up their sleeves. Out of the ashes from Melbourne, the hip-hop duo Average Rap Band was formed. The duo consist of Tom Scott and Lui Tuiasau as they rhyme over Dandruff Dicky and Hone St John production. The six track EP, Stream of Nonsenseness, is heavily focused on lyrics and the unique instrumentation by Dandruff and Hone. Check out the co-featured album of the month below and purchase it on Bandcamp.
