Big shouts to the homie Pez, who on Australia Day, made it to the number 7 spot on the 2009 JJJ Hottest 100. Here's some info from the media release to explain it better:

"Rising hip-hop star PEZ has outshone some of the biggest names in alternative music to reach number seven in the Triple J Hottest 100 for 2009, with his debut single 'The Festival Song'.

The track, taken from PEZ's 2008 album 'A Mind Of My Own', beat out stiff competition from the likes of The Presets and The Ting Tings to claim the number seven spot and achieve the highest ranking of any independent artist in the countdown.

The Triple J Hottest 100 is an annual list of the 100 most popular songs of the year, as voted by Triple J listeners nationally. This year's countdown was compiled from the favourite songs of more than 800,000 people - the highest number of voters in Hottest 100 history."

Great work brother, it's dope to see one of the MC's from the local scene that we all came up in make some serious noise. Props!
