Bio

PICTURE walking home down the train lines at sunrise with tired legs, wet shoes and soggy feet, covered in cobbler’s pegs, grass and smears of paint, carrying a heavy, yet loudly rattling bag and wishing you didn’t have four more stations to hike while the fresh air reminds you how dehydrated you are.

MCRotheee did this most nights around the traps of Brisbane for several years. Like many graffiti writers, Rotheee was a huge fan of hip-hop and rapping, but at the time only ever freestyled himself. Also a university student, he was usually absent from class due to his extra-curricular activities. He spent a total of four years dabbling in IT and then Graphic Design before dropping out of university.

It was during his time at uni that he joined the funk/hip-hop outfit Kamikaze Perverts, and began taking his rapping seriously. This led The Mak Jockeee into the world of production and engineering. His role in the Kamikaze Perverts gained him a spot in The Damagers, a street-style hip-hop crew that provided Rotheee with an outlet for his more underground styles, and yet another distraction.

His distractions were his downfalls, failing IT because of graffiti and band involvement, and failing graphic design because of graffiti and hip-hop production. By this time, the run-ins with the law were adding up, and Rotheee knew he had to stop graffing illegally. The next step was to persue his other passion, namely hip-hop music and production. He decided to enrol into a technical production course at TAFE. MCRotheee immediately found TAFE more involving and his new course more interesting, and continued to do a Cert IV in Music Business followed by a Diploma in Music Industry (Technical Production).

By the time Rotheee left TAFE, he was a regularly performing MC in a band, a crew, and on the solo front, was producing beats and recording free of charge for almost a dozen artists, and had put out a limited release compilation as one of the founding members of FTC Productions. Triple E’s hard work and various projects gained him valuable experience while his name was becoming known widely around Brisbane and Australia. This led to Rotheee stretching out to perform at many venues between the Sunshine and Gold Coasts, and also in Sydney at Nurcha Records' "Down For The Cause", where Queenslanders MCRotheee, Cerius MC and DJ Cean were very well-received by the NSW crowd.

The eventual dissolution of both Rotheee’s band and crew sent him into a deep depression. Even after regaining some motivation he found himself constantly battling depression in order to get things done. Eventually he found the drive to focus on his solo work and his role in FTC Productions. FTC went on to become the forefront of battle-rapping in Brisbane, by running Brissy’s original acapella street battles at a time when promoters and venues had stopped putting on battles. These battles gave local MC’s a chance to be heard and known while helping them build their confidence, and have given MCRotheee increased fame along with a reputation for helping up-and-comers in the scene.

Then one day, Roth Triple was contacted through myspace by his would-be soul mate. She was a writer and an aspiring model, and their interests, whilst different, blended together well. It wasn’t long before he became her full-time carer, due to her acquired brain injury. This was no obstacle, however, and the inseparable couple moved into a permanent residence to live happily together where they bought a dog and Rotheee built his studio and vocal booth.

These days, MCRotheee is successfully fighting depression and living happily as a pensioner while working hard for himself, his partner, FTC, and many others. He has a large repertoire of material ready for release, and more than eight years’ experience in performing, rapping, production, recording, mixing, engineering (live & studio) and graphic design. He has performed and had airplay interstate, and has had production aired on Triple J. He has two years’ experience in video production, and is now widely known in the Australian underground hip-hop scene for his hard work, prominence, skills, and his support for the scene. He is slowly working on his first release and the establishment of Kut Paste Records, and he will get there.
