Chino XL has been in the game a long time, long enough to pay more than his share of dues and master the true artform of wordplay. He came to Australia as a guest of local rapper Surreal and tore up every stage he hit with tour mate Bobby Bout-It. Here he demonstrates why he is renowned as one of the best lyricists in hiphop with a piece called ‘Wordsmith’. I’m a big fan of good lyricism so this has been hands down one of my favourite things to have filmed.
