Signed hardcopy CD of the indie album Fuck You Patrick! Which features Madchild of Swollen Members, Swifty McVay & Bizarre of D12.
Mastacraft has seen more highs & lows in his short career and personal life than many see in a lifetime. Hailing from overseas Patrick Whyntie moved with family to regional South Australia where he embraced the culture and started his trials and tribulations during high school he developed an outlet for lifes issues in Hip-Hop. Inspired in his early teens by the likes of Tech N9ne, other lyrically cerebral artist it was the Australian battle scene & Eminem that would make Mastacraft would feel a sense of accomplishment. He has gone on now to tour twice in a journey that would teach him the journeys, ups and downs of being a successful artist. Touring alongside Tech N9ne nationally & collaborated with members of D12 frequently. In 2011 he was the public vote winner of the Nova 919 I am with the band competition with his highly praised song Ease The Pain. Doors were beginning to open landing several major tours with The Game, Kid Cudi, Nelly & many more as he began to tour relentlessly around Australia honing his craft completely independent.
It was time for an album, enter F**k You Patrick!.
A album inspired by a moment where he was trying to build the hip hop community in Australia. He becomes the guy who had a chair thrown at him by Xzibit! No stranger to controversy Mastacraft titled his album after worldwide media outlets such as TMZ published a viral beef with veteran rapper Xzibit (which eventuated in Xzibit praising the album); he made a negative situation turn into a huge positive & he began a small but quickly growing cult like online following, he managed to peak at 36 in the iTunes charts. His success garnered international press & an online buzz resulting in attracting DMX's publicist Domenick Nati to begin repping the Australian MC internationally.
Unfortunately Mastacraft hit a roadblock but being the passionate and resilient human being he was, he fought the battle of his life behind the scenes, shortly after his 2016 sold out tour in support of veteran MC Madchild & prior to the release of F**k You Patrick! He was diagnosed with stage 2 oral cancer and needed immediate treatment. This led to a grueling year weight loss, depression & worst of all the loss of his outlet but that would not stop his drive & he was determined to beat it. Even bandaged up he was regularly online to his fans promoting the album from his hospital bed live streaming. If you listen to this album it is about fighting, finding that inner drive to keep going in the darkest of moments, a love ode to a girl, heartbreak, broken teenagers dealing with suicidal thoughts & you can grasp if he overcame everything he raps about on record, it was inevitable that after a third surgery he had beaten cancer completely.
Mastacraft has since found a mentor & friend in Swollen Members general Madchild during his time away from the stage. He has been re calibrating, mending broken bridges & is working closely on his next album Uppers & Downers while making up for lost time promoting his current one.
Stay tuned for what this MC has to offer & remember you can always reach out to speak to him.
