December 8, Retrieved January 25, When she got there, there was an open microphone cypher happening. People were passing the microphone around the dance floor, and dudes were rhyming.
At the time, Ladi6 and Sheelaroc were doing their thing, and while I didn't want to be a hip-hop MC, I had these rhymes in me that I wanted to get out. I saw the microphone coming around and went to get it, but it missed me. The second time around I made a real point of sticking my hand out. The microphone was in my hand, and my heart was racing.
I started rhyming over hip-hop beats and the crowd seemed to love it. Soon afterwards, Tali travelled down to Dunedin with Mosus. Shan's girlfriend encouraged Tali to get on the microphone with Shan. He played some drum and bass, she sang and rapped over the top, and yet again the crowd went crazy. He said, 'It's not enough that you're a female MC or that you dabble in this.
It's not enough to just be good, you have to be great. As a female in this industry, people will be quick to put you down, persecute you, and talk shit about you. You have to be amazing at what you do. I didn't want to disappoint him, because I loved him at the time, and I really wanted to do this.
From that moment, Tali made it her mission to learn both the scene and the art of MCing inside out. I had to know about the culture I was getting involved in. She practised and practised, until Mosus and Pylonz gave her her first full gig at Bath Street in Dunedin. I got on the microphone, did it, and it was really good. From there they started booking me for Scientific gigs.
Running parallel to this, Tali graduated from NASDA, and then went to teacher's college, securing the qualifications that would keep her afloat in between paid gigs over the years to come. She started MCing at the end of , and after a year of playing at raves most weekends, touring, and supporting the majority of the international DJs who came to town, Tali relocated to Melbourne.
But first a couple of pivotal events had to happen. His MC, Flux, was sick and wasn't allowed to fly, so Mosus and Pylonz took me aside and asked me to step in. I met up with Bailey, we talked and we were cool. We made up a few hand signals to use during the set. That night we rolled out for four hours. I put my heart and soul into it, and the crowd didn't seem to mind that Flux wasn't there. I could command a Ministry crowd and hold it down with an international DJ, but where was I going to go next with this?
As the year progressed, things got better and better for Scientific, and Tali became more and more involved in event promotions. At the same time, her relationship with Mosus shifted from love to something closer resembling a business partnership. Realising it wasn't working, they broke up, but continued working together.
I also had girlfriends there. I moved over, got a job and started MCing at parties. While I was there, everyone would ask me what I was doing in Melbourne. I had it all mapped out in my mind, but the universe conspired to make it happen another way. After some encouragement, she necked a shot, headed over and introduced herself as an MC. But I MC'd for him in his ear, then broke into song. He had the biggest smile on his face, and was like, no way, girl you are amazing!
