Fresh home from a 16 date National tour with Butterfingers and a Sydney support slot with Horrorshow, Rapaport has relentlessly announced he will be hitting the road again embarking on a National headline tour of his own to launch his second solo album, ‘Village Idiot’. The ‘Village Idiot’ National tour is set to kick off in June and will stop via Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, Jindabyne and Adelaide.
“…the musicianship, dynamics, rhythms and sheer multi-tasking ability of the Rapaport duo was staggering…an intimate and fascinating set for music lovers and musicians alike. Rapaport and his astounding drummer Finn were unparalleled in their tightness.” - The Haze Mag, April 2018
Three years in the making, ‘Village idiot’ boasts a unique track listing that features some of the country’s best hip hop artists; Joelistics (TZU), Ribongia, Kid Fiction, Mantra & Billie McCarthy. The album merges the intensity and speed of hip hop with country, soul, and African groove which resonates into the Rapaport’s live show through his spit fire raps and live instrumental beats.
Rapaport Explains "I'm really looking forward to sharing these tunes that I put so much of myself into with audiences around the country. The response I have had to the album has been really amazing and I'm excited to bring the songs alive with the live guitar."
Released in March through Sydney hip hop label Big Village, a label Rapaport co-founded and still runs, ‘Village Idiot’ has clocked up thousands of streams on Spotify and radio airplay around the country via Triple J and the National Community Radio Network.
After performing with the best MC’s Australian hip hop has to offer over the years such as Thundamentals, Mathas, Omar Musa, P. Smurf, Butterfingers and Horrorshow, it’s all eyes on Rapaport as he kicks off on his National headline tour to launch ‘Village Idiot’ next month. Tickets via rapaport.com.au, on sale May 23 at 10am!
