Minus with the Take-Away!

Lavatory Records

The objective of an emcee is to leave Hip Hop fans with something to hold on to!  Be it memorable lyrics, underlying messages, songs or just glimpses of their uniquely differentiating personality traits. The idea is to leave an impression just like the show 30 Seconds To Fame, except with more opportunities and time to make the impression. This concept is called “The takeaway”.

Minus, one half of FnM and is completed by his band mate Falcone, is one emcee who has taken on the role of being Rap’s “negative integer”. Not to say he is in anyway neither negative nor toxic in terms of the essences that contribute to Hip Hop. Minus just happens to be a highly regarded punch-liner who leaves fans with something memorable to hold on to.

In this interview we spoke to the rapper about what to expect from FnM in the future, battle rap career and aspirations, his solo endeavours and his general perspective on a number of things within the industry.

#BoutThatLife by Falcone

Lavatory Records

It is finally here! #BoutThatLife by Falcone has officially dropped. Back in July ’15 we presented  the making of #BoutThatLife.

This single as produced by Falcone  will be on the Too Many Chiefs project, slated for an early 2016 release. 

The music video is directed and edited by Jacque Moodley and can be viewed on Falcone’s YouTube Channel.

Falcone, whom Lavatory Records interviewed in March ’15, had this to say about his latest single:

“Embark on a journey of discovery as a lady and her son set out to uncover the mystery surrounding “that life”. Our heroes traverse through several European cities including Rome, Florence, Venice, Paris, Zurich & Berne. 

In a surprising twist, the two learn that ‘that life’ isn’t about material objects, but in fact experiences you share with loved ones. 
 
This journey of self-discovery will delight and amuse both young and old.” – Falcone
 
In the immortal words of Falcone:
“Make money, not music. Now that’s sound advice.” 
Enjoy.

Falcone: The emcee finding his wings

“Who said Alberton ain’t Hip Hop”? That’s a popular saying that the Managing Director and Founder of Lavatory Records, Thato “Tikk’n T-Doe” Keikelame, is renowned for!

As a proud Alberton native, Thato was ecstatic about having “one of his own” for a Lavatory Records exclusive interview; fellow Albertonian Falcone. Named Jacque Moodley by his mother, Falcone is mild-mannered and has an introverted demeanour. Plying one’s trade in the highly demanding advertising industry, as he does, requires one to be calm under pressure. However, do not be fooled by his baby face and laid-back manner, the man is ferocious on the microphone.
