The Australian hip hop scene was in a different place 10 years ago, when the original groundbreaking Obesecity compilation first came out. Now in 2012 Australia’s flagship label Obese Records is turning the page to the next chapter of their legacy with the two-disc Obesecity 2 compilation.

Rightfully so, the new release is being trumpeted by the founder and owner himself, Pegz. “Obesecity was released 10 years ago when the Aussie hip hop genre was very unpolished and misunderstood. Crews from across Australia had been linking up for shows and various other reasons, but the scene was relatively insular and invisible to mainstream society. Since that point, Australian hip hop hasn’t really looked back. We are now a thriving industry, and part of what defines modern Australia. Obesecity 2, in essence, is about reflecting on all of it, and realising how far we’ve come.”

The original compilation helped establish a generation of hip hop heavyweights into the wider world including the Hilltop Hoods, Muph & Plutonic, Bias B, the late great Hunter and Pegz himself.

On Obesecity 2 the label looks to showcase the brightest and most promising new artists in Australian hip hop, with an emphasis on the label’s distribution roster and independently established acts. Included on the collection are Class A, Fluent Form, Tommy Illfigga, Maundz, One Six, Kid Selzy and Goatmob.
