Young, Gifted & Broke Release ‘The Grey Tape’ and Announce Australian Showcase

Home Brew is a rap group. Young, Gifted and Broke is a collective.

In a time when music sales are thriving andevery kid has a walkman it makes perfect sense that Young, Gifted and Broke are releasing a cassette tape.

What's cooler than music you can't physically listen to? The tape has already sold double platinum in Auckland (24 copies) and this week will also be released in Australia. Mate. This is the best thing since Jimmy Barnes.

To celebrate the release, YG&B will hold showcases at Sydney’s Civic Underground on 25 October and Melbourne’s The Espy on 26 October featuring performances from Home Brew, Lui T (@Peace), Lucky Lance (Team Dynamite) and more.
