“I’m a battle rapper, troll and general degenerate.”
That’s how BK Ultra, the Melbourne rapper who yesterday impersonated 360 on Melbourne radio station 3AW, introduces himself to me. He’s actually not though. His idea to expertly out Tom Elliot as a poorly researched excuse for a journalist comes from his own background in the field.
And how does someone who’s smart enough to do journalism at Monash fare as a battle rapper?
“Pretty well actually, haha, I think my writing background definitely helps,” he reckons. “I made an average mixtape when I was first starting a couple years ago but lately I’ve been focusing on battles. I’m at a stage now where I’m well established in the battle scene and I’m looking to have higher profile battles less frequently so I can work on some new music too. I have a couple songs in the works at the moment.“
Keep an eye out for him on his Facebook page and watch the glorious moment again below.
