Requiem is an Australian hip hop artist from the city of Melbourne, Victoria. He currently lives near the Australian outback, in the tropics of Darwin, Northern Territory. It was there he wrote a love letter to his former home. The song is set to a beat by rising UK producer Beat Butcha.
Gearing up to release their latest offering, The Rise of the Antihero, Hip-Hop duo Nefew have garnered support from energy drink giant, Red Bull. This union sees the double act made up of Polemikk and PA Double act as Ambassadors for the beverage, which is recognized as the world’s most popular energy drink.
“We’ve always been fans of the Red Bull products and I feel that we have similar values when it comes to our products,” Polemikk explains. “We are excited that they have offered us this opportunity as we are constantly looking for ways to separate ourselves from the norm.”
Nefew’s appreciation of Hip-Hop and the culture as well as their universal approach to creating music continues to be recognized by fans and media all around the world. This latest accolade inspires the duo to keep doing what they have successfully done for the last five years. With a slew of projects on deck that will see them well into 2013, the potential for this duo to increase their global presence is undeniable.
“Getting the acknowledgment from a renowned brand like Red Bull has been another sign of approval for our craft. It feels great to be appreciated by leaders of lifestyle and sports,” shares PA Double. “This is just another step bringing us closer to our goals and we are thankful for their support, “ he concludes.
The Rise of the Antihero will be available for free download later this year in conjunction with Red Bull.
