Kerser will release his fifth album entitled Next Step on Friday 13 November. The announcement comes with the release of lead track and video Still Haven’t Changed, a reflective track about his past. “I touch on subjects in my personal life no other Australian rapper would or has…” says Kerser.
It’s been just over four years since the Campbelltown emcee released his debut album The Nebulizer. His unpolished style and authenticity captivated a select part of the nation. Now, Kerser has his own label in ABK Records, a venture supported and distributed by ADA (Warner Music Australia), and in a move away from the much loved producer of the past, Nebs, he has also enlisted the skills of Sinima Beats to provide the soundtrack to Next Step.
“At first he wasn’t sure, as he doesn’t usually do albums for people (although he has produced for DMX, E40, G-Unit and more). He usually leases beats via Internet and has a crazy reputation for producing so I knew this was a long shot. I told him my situation, how I wanted his beats for my album, sent him a few videos of how big the songs we have done together over here were, we worked out the money situation and it was happy days. Now I have the best album I have ever released ready to drop…” Kerser says.
