Young, Gifted & Broke Release ‘The Grey Tape’

17 October 2012

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.

Featuring work from Home Brew, @Peace, Christoph El Truento, Haz Beats, Side Steps Quintet and countless other people you've never heard of, owning this tape will make you the baby Jesus of hipsters. 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.

Limited edition copies of ‘The Grey Tape’ will be available exclusively at ARCADE Store (22C Cross St, Auckland) & Conch Records (115A Ponsonby Rd, Auckland) from Friday 26 October, or for download via a new technology called 'internet' via www.younggiftedandbroke.com from 5pm, Thursday 25 October.
