EMCEE Kerser took his sixth album on tour and our man Declan McClenaghan caught the U18 show for the popular Australian rapper.
Kerser is a rapper hailing from the suburbs of south western Sydney. He recently released his sixth studio album Tradition and did a national tour to support it. I went and saw him play his underage Brisbane show and he killed it. He was supported by local rappers Nerve and Skrub who each did a set opening for The Kers. This was a big deal for the supports as it was their first time playing opening for an act as big as Kerser. They both rose to the occasion and brought a lot of energy and excitement to the stage, playing some of their own music as well as songs from their group Syntax Junkies. The two killed their set and were a well deserved support.
After the set break and a few quick sightings of the man himself backstage, Kerser came into pumped up audience. He was joined by fellow rapper and his brother Rates as well as fellow rapper Jay Uf. The amount of energy created in the room was incredible, between the audience and Kerser the mood was instantly lifted as he played some songs from his new album as well as some old classics the crowd loved. He maintained this level of energy throughout his entire set and apart from one technical difficulty the gig ran perfectly. It was great to see how much love and passion he had for his own music but as well as his mates, as he got them to play a solo song of theirs each.
