Hilltop Hoods

What are you most excited about this national tour?
MC SUFFA: We’re pretty excited to be hitting the road backed by an orchestra and a choir. The songs are going to take on a whole new life with 50-plus musicians joining us onstage.

Did you always want to be professional rap stars?
MC SUFFA: I actually wanted to be a palaeontologist, but I didn’t have the grades. Or the education. Or any life skills of any value.

Do you think any of your past or present work has been under-appreciated?
MC SUFFA: If anything it’s been over-appreciated. I have a lot of regrets!
Do you have a scar that tells a story?
MC SUFFA: I have a scar above my left eyebrow from when I passed out in my studio. The story it tells is that I am, and will always be, a complete idiot.

What’s your poison?
DJ DEBRIS: Tequila — no chaser.

Do you have a party trick?
MC SUFFA: I’ve got one party trick, which I’ve been using for years. I can make all the red wine in your house magically appear inside of me.

What’s the worst hangover you’ve ever had?
MC SUFFA: Probably the hangover I had after Pressure’s Buck’s Night. I was actually considering paying someone to watch me sleep to make sure that I didn’t die.

What was your first car?
DJ DEBRIS: HQ Holden Kingswood — it was all I could afford.
MC SUFFA: I inherited a Datsun Sunny from my parents. We nicknamed it Redrunner because if you stopped for red lights it would conk out — stopping was never an option. It was like being in a real-life version of the movie Speed, except it was considerably different to the movie Speed in more ways than I can count. In fact, it would be fair to say that it was nothing like being in the movie Speed.

What’s the biggest thing you’ve put in your mouth?
MC SUFFA: My foot.

What’s one thing to remember in a fight?
MC SUFFA: Take your pants off. Everybody rips their shirt off in a fight. Nobody ever expects the pants.
DJ DEBRIS: Why are we/ you fighting?

What will you say to God when you get to Heaven?
DJ DEBRIS: Hala! Where’s the Tequila at?

Who was the last person to see you naked?
DJ DEBRIS: A courier about 15 minutes ago.
MC SUFFA: Me. And I owe myself an apology for putting me through that. I’m a real piece of work.

Speaking of which, who or what was the last thing you had to apologise for?
MC SUFFA: Waking up my pregnant wife last night when I tripped over practically everything we own.
DJ DEBRIS: These answers.
