We recently chopped it up with our boy Louie, to talk about Australia, Kanye West, Youtube, Females, and the string of music he has blessed us with. If you don’t know Louie yet… do your god damn homework motherflower!
What’s really really really really good?
Not eating meat, Mayer Hawthorne and prescription medicines
What’s on the agenda for the rest of the day?
I’m working on a song that im gonna get my old man on, hit the bag, hook up some dinner and watch a flick in bed
Why are you doing this interview?
Because I’m self important and interviews totally allow me to indulge my ego
Why do you do what you do?
I don’t really know anything else, I cant nine to five I cant tow the line or take orders so I guess it’s part necessity and part passion and allot of ‘listen to me asshole’
You have been in Australia for a minute now, what do you like/not like about the land of the Kangaroo?
I love this country, its beautiful and one of the luckiest countries in the world for real, two things I hate! One is the flag waving I’ve witnessed, sure be proud of your country cos its beautiful, but that flag represents oppression, slavery, rape and murder, fuck the union jack and the southern cross. I recently read an interview with a local emcee where he proclaimed to wave the flag which made me feel sick, practicing an art such as Hip Hop and knowing where it comes from (I’d hope and assume) and to support an symbol of the marginalization of the aborigine of this country is fucked up… Which leads me on to my second gripe is the instances of racism I’ve witnessed here and it seems so ingrained in Australian society, like to be opposed to racism seems to be unusual here and to go along with it seems the done thing, so sad, these are things I wanna touch on the new album and if anyone ever takes note of one thing I say I’d hope it to be these.
Just to end on a positive note, Australian woman! Oooooooh why do you all have such good titties?!!!?
What is the Breakfast of champions?
JJ tried to school me to the nutritional value of Special K (the cereal, I know how good the drug is) this morn, I like me some peanut butter on crumpets with a strong coffee and a stick
Favourite part of the female body? Why?
All of it, but seriously a woman’s mind, heart and her completeness evolved from hardships and trials are what makes her sexiest
What do you think of that Shayne Hood wanker?
Sexy! Ha I respect the mans hustle
If you had a super power what would it be?
I’d like to blow up peoples heads with my mind, ‘oh your eating KFC’? BOOOOM! Later oxygen thief!
Favourite Youtube Video?
UNFORGIVABLE!!! No one understands how bad I wanna be besties with this dude!!
What is the slickest way to break it off with your girl?
My man Big M always plays the ‘I got problems’ card which seems to work for him, I’m not so smooth at this breaking up shit I have mad difficultly feigning interest if it aint there and I guess they usually pick up on it
What are your all time favourite sneakers?
His girl!! Anyone seen her ass in that magazine, id blow a hundred dudes to get a feel of that
Drinkin” Druggin’ Fighting’ Fukkin’ EP… explain?
Hmmmm, just some shit I whipped up real quick to sell on a tour but kinda ended up getting me some buzz, there’s a mix of songs on there, themes like contempt, misogyny, heartbreak, drug use and partying which is a fairly good overview of the contradiction that is me
Explain the theory behind Grips and Tonic?
Take one heavy music writing star, add a aging rapper from NZ a bunch of a gin and get ya shwizzle stick blown the fukk off
What’s coming up on the horizon for Louie Knuxx?
So much man, the construction of JJ and my business/label, projects from Deez Nuts, Grips, Kid Shelleen, I got a solo LP in the works, my Cancer album with Jay Roacher, another EP, some shit with my boys Fact and Tewaa and a mixtape real soon involving all aforementioned artists and others.
Tours also, lots of them!
Famous last words?
Be a good person, educate yourself , think and dream freely, oppose your conditioning and live without dead time.
