Borrowing his alias from his favourite Mighty Morphin Power Rangers character, IVAN OOZE is part of the new breed of Australian hip hop artists taking the local form of the genre to new heights.
With a fascination for intricate rhymes and a signature super-fast flow, IVAN OOZE (Ben Townsend) has in a short period of time experienced the support and attention that some artists take a lifetime to build, with a steadily growing legion of fans waiting with baited breath for each release.
Bills is the brand new single from Ivan Ooze, an earworm of a track featuring Ooze’s tricky flow and some razor sharp production. BILLS also features Ghostface Killah, a member of the legendary Wu Tang Clan who Ivan Ooze toured with in the first half of 2016.
With a career so fresh, IVAN OOZE already has some impressive shows under his belt and it’s a list that continues to grow. With two standout appearances at Beyond The Valley and a massive 45 date tour supporting Oz hip hop favourite Seth Sentry, OOZE also counts tours with the like of Cypress Hill, Ice Cube and the recent national tour with Wu-Tang Clan as part of his impressive CV.
With a massive online following, the release of his brand new single Bills, the 93 KFC Rotisserie mixtape previously released and a national tour scheduled for November, 2016 will be a landmark year for the young rapper.
