UK Hip Hop: Artists & Discographies
Stealth Magazine

Stealth Magazine

Stealth MagazineStealth Magazine outta Sydney, effectively Australia's largest ever hip hop mag is really nice and if you have missed it so far issue 4 hits the stores November 2000. Edited by Mark Pollard (of the Mothership Connection radio show on 2SER) this magazine provides a worldwide perspective on this thing we call 'Rap' and definitely knows what time it is with a large selection of UK based artist information.

So, after 6 months of shitfighting, as Mark puts it, the magazine is now out in Sydney. He is presently trying to tee up some distribution in the UK because there is a fair bit of Brit-ish covered and he aims to cover a lot more UK hip hop in the future...

This issue is full colour, 84 pages deep and comes with a CD-Rom attached. The CD includes an exclusive track from Braintax and Taskforce 'The Three Amigos' and the mag has interviews with them as well. Also featured on the UK side are: Procryptix, Wildflower, The Creators and various others...

There are a total of eight 8 tracks on the CD-Rom, including, as well as the Braintax / Task Force collabo, tracks  from Sole, Them, Celsius, Koolism, Primeridian, Spontaneous and Jase...

So why has it taken Mark so long to get this issue of the mag ready - after all we have been hearing about the CD for some time. Well some shit went down with the internet start up company they were working for ( when it got taken over by a big media player. Jobs were axed and to add to the problems the printers in Hong Kong were unaccommodating to the situation. But Mark never gave up on his baby and after a lot of effort he has managed to get the product out and even improve the quality!

If anyone out there can help the Stealth crew with distribution or promotional help get in contact with them with any suggestions/contacts.
