Lazy Grey has been an Australian Hip Hop icon since the early 90’s from his home base of Queensland. With a recognisable, impeccable delivery and known for witty and honest rhymes, Lazy Grey has forged his way into the lists of favourite emcees of both artists and fans Australia-wide. Formerly partnering with fellow Brisbane MC Len One as Brothers Stoney, Lazy Grey is a lyricist to the core, combining rare funk samples and gritty drums to create a unique and notable sound.
Lazy has produced and appeared on some of Australian Hip Hop’s most revered and popular releases, including work by Brad Strut, Nuffsaid, Pegz, Delta, Bias B, Reason, Jake Biz, Tornts, Resin Dogs, Bigfoot, The Optimen, Trem One, Brad Strut, Kings Konekted, Delta, Jase, Hau and Mnemonic Ascent. A celebrated emcee and quality producer in his own right, Lazy Grey’s music captures the relaxed Brisbane atmosphere he loves as well as a fierce passion and realism.
Lazy Grey established himself an early reputation across Queensland via his Brisbane band Towering Inferno with DJ Damage and B-Boy Flex through 1994–1997, and together with Brad Strut they released the Toowong Sessions. Lazy Grey dropped in 1998 with who would prove to be a long-term collaborator Len One the On Tap release. Following the success of this, the duo teamed up with influential Melbourne emcee Bias B as Boney & Stoney, and subsequently released a self-titled EP in 1999 which has become known as one of the top pioneering releases of Australian Hip Hop. Lazy Grey further cemented his spot within Australian rap through the solo release On or Off Tap in 2000.
While releasing his own solo work, Lazy Grey continued to work with Len One as Brothers Stoney and dropped Stone Broke (2003) and Tappin Buttons (Instrumentals) in 2004. Brother Stoney played numerous shows and festivals across Australia and appeared on the highly influential Culture of Kings compilation series.
Lazy Grey returned to solo releases and produced perhaps his best known albums, Banned in Queensland (2004), and The Soundtrack (2009). After numerous emcee and production features with a who’s who of Australian artists, he returned with the Queensland supergroup 750 Rebels and their album Cold Heat release in 2014, which was one of the best Hip Hop albums of that year in Australia. Lazy Grey most recently featured on the Discourse track “The Martyr” from Discourse’s forthcoming album.
