EDITORS’ NOTES

“Jimmy Recard,” the lead single from Drapht’s third album, single-handedly catapulted the Perth rapper into stardom. A hit on radio and at house parties, the lighthearted sing-along was one of 2008’s biggest homegrown tracks, but there’s so much more to Brothers Grimm. Over bouncy production from Trials and M-Phazes, among others, Drapht openly tackled themes like mental health, drugs, and identity with candid honesty. A clever, meaningful release filled with catchy melodies and festival-ready choruses, Brothers Grimm primed audiences for his most successful album, 2011’s The Life of Riley, proving that Australian rappers had something real to say—and that they could say it with dexterity over Funkadelic and John Lee Hooker samples.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.
