There’s few active rap groups in the country with the portfolio of Spit Syndicate, and they’ll be adding another classic to the trophy cabinet with their album One Good Shirt Had Us All Fly, dropping on Good Friday.

Every taste of the album so far indicates that this will be their most diverse effort yet. ‘Know Better‘ bounces with summertime tang, they display silky R&B reflections on ‘Inhibitions,’ and latest single ‘Hold On Me‘ recruits their longtime One Day colleagues Joyride and Solo for a slice of rich serenity. With a decade in the game, Nick Lupi and Jimmy Nice are remaining innovative as ever.

Moreover, Spit Syndicate have always been proud of their hometown, and more specifically, their Inner-West roots which they reference endlessly in their songs. For the debut episode of Familiar Territory, we tagged along with Nick & Jimmy to three Sydney spots which inspire their songs. See the video above, some images below, and prepare for the duo to deliver more sonic treats when One Good Shirt Had Us All Fly drops in two days time:
