Q&A Scene: MC Krewd


Tell us about your new show?
Drizzle from the Sizzle is a comical hip hop cabaret about how I came to be MC KREWD.

How would you describe your sound in food form and why?
Sausages left out in the sun, topped with maple syrup and 100s and Thousands. It’s a dark show about ugly issues disguised in a sweet but grotesque shroud.

Which song resonates most strongly and why?
Ya’ll so Fake because it is a tongue and cheek song about coming into my own despite the expectation I should be ashamed of who I am and where she has come from.

Any on the road anecdotes?
One time I went window washing to try and fund my hip hop career. I held up traffic, people were really mean and dishonest. You can watch the video in the link I’ve shared from YouTube.

Where do you draw inspiration from?
My experiences as a single mother on welfare, pop-culture, Antonin Artaud and everyone I’ve ever worked with.

What’s next for you?
Touring KREWD nights across Australia both with KREWD performers and performers local to the town we are visiting.

What’s your scene?
Comedy, surreal show girls, burlesque and theatre.
