Hip-Hop in New Zealand

While everyone is talking about how the Common album Finding Forever is all over charts and everyone’s waiting for 50 Cent – Curtis and Kanye West – Graduation, I’m digging hip-hop music from New Zealand…

My friend JC (aka Wordperfect) was in town over the weekend on his way to Germany. He was schooling me on the scene in New Zealand. Even though there are only 4 million people in NZ and the hip-hop community is small they have some pretty cool hip-hop coming out of there. Scribe is the biggest act in New Zealand, peep two of his music videos below. Other rap acts to peep are PNC, Mareko and Nikki Montana. On the non-rap tip check out Ladi6, Chong Nee, Batucuda Sound Machine and Fat Freddy’s Drop.

Scribe – FRESH

Scribe – STAND UP
