CODEINE Green and XT are us­ing their mu­sic as a in­stru­ment to in­spire peo­ple to chase their dreams. The lo­cal rap duo has teamed up for a live show tonight and plan on ‘‘reach­ing out to the peo­ple’’. Hail­ing from one of the Coast’s most suc­cess­ful hip-hop groups, Street Cred Crew, XT helps run a swag of lo­cal hip-hop shows. The rap­per lends his time for free to give emerg­ing lo­cal artists a leg up in the in­dus­try. Be­sides mak­ing mu­sic, man­ag­ing events and self­dis­tribut­ing and pro­mot­ing, XT man­ages fel­low lo­cal artist Codeine Green. Green has had a big im­pact on the lo­cal hip-hop com­mu­nity re­cently, with his de­but re­lease Green With Envy pro­mot­ing breast can­cer aware­ness. Codeine’s mum is fight­ing the deadly disease, which in­spired the duo to help in any way they can. Tonight the pair will cel­e­brate their ef­forts with tracks from Codeine Green’s new record and hits from XT’s Duel EP. Chi Chi, Cur­rumbin RSL: Duo plays new and old favourites. Show at 7pm. Free en­try.
