Stealth Magazine was originally printed in Sydney in June 1999. It started as a black and white zine but eventually turned full colour and had a CD attached to it. At one time we were distributed around the world by the likes of Tower Records. September 11 (2001) took out a bunch of our distributors so we re-focused locally (Australia). To date, we have published 14 issues.

This website is visited by 15-20,000 people per month. From around 2002 until the end of 2008, the website was primarily just a message board. In January 2009, I decided to finally get some of my content up. I used to write weekly hip hop columns in various street press, host The Mothership Connection radio show on 2SER and have written for 60+ mags around the world. I’m hoping to get all of that content up here one day.

I’m still working out what I want this to become. But, for now, I’m trying to re-visit the times when I really enjoyed writing about hip hop and it wasn’t a matter of weekly, lowly paid deadlines.

Peace Mark. Just wanted to let you know that your site is pure genius. These interviews are so so important for understanding the diverse ideas that make up Hiphop Kulcha!!!!!
I am learning so much man. Please keep the fiyah and continue to lace the world with Hiphop’s intellectual property.

Hi Victor. Try the message boards or Ozhiphop. Unfortunately, we don’t have many copies left and haven’t printed in 6 years.

Urthboy says: “Indigenous artists carry a profoundly engrossing and intriguing story for international audiences, yet it’s barely understood by many Australians.”
This free ebook aims to be an introduction to some of the Aboriginal hip-hop artists out there. Thanks.
