Music Video of the Day: L-Fresh the Lion ft. Parvyn Kaur Singh "Get Mine" (2015)

L-Fresh the Lion may be a talented writer and performer, but the way he has been able to use his platform as an artist to project his beliefs and messages that resonate with many people around the country over the past year especially has been nothing short of stirring.

I'm excited to see REMi as I head out on a cold Saturday night in Adelaide. I haven't been to Rocket Bar in a while and while there aren't many people in the club when I arrive just short of 10pm, I'm aware that this is a sold out show, so I'm not too worried about the Melbourne artist having a small crowd.
