Recently I spoke with Gorzki, who is located in Poland and runs his own record label called MGK Records. He has just recently put out the second installment of the Hip Hop Racism Stop compilation. In this interview we discuss the Polish hip hop scene and a bit about himself. Please note that due to the difficulty in translating Polish to English we apologize for the bad grammer.

When they audition young women for rap videos these days, do the brothers use the paper bag test? The comb test?

Paarl / Cape Town, 3 April 2003 

This is no April fools joke. Only two weeks after KGB’s debut album “The First Born” hit the shelves at Pick ‘n Pay Hypermarkets, Mothermix Distribution clinched a deal with Musica, which will see the “Best Hip Hop Album of the Year” nominated CD in all 136 Musica stores nationwide. 

And again for a price of under R 50, making the album cheaper than any single.
