JK-47 – I AM HERE (TRUST ME)
A powerful, moving black and white cut from the Gratis Minds emcee. One of the country’s premiere lyricists, JK-47 delivers a poignant message about Indigenous deaths in custody from his forthcoming debut album “Made For This.”
HOOLIGAN HEFS – SAME ROAD FT. BLUEBOY
The Doonside rapper his the trending charts again for this new visual from his recently released EP “Living In Sin.” This time a change of pace from the usual turnt up drill vibes of Hooligan Hefs, slowing down with storytelling over piano with a chorus laced by fellow West-Sydney artist Blueboy.
JESSICA JADE – BET
Young Sydney R&B Queen Jessica Jade delivers the long-awaited visuals to her single “Bet” which sees her full of smiles on the feel-good anthem. Bright colours, family scenes and plenty of sunshine deliver a fitting visual to one of the most sonically appealing joints of the year.
L0NE – CALLS PT.2 FT. WEBBY
Eastside Melbourne collaborators L0NE and Webby re-unite for an alternative hip-hop cut which will be stuck in your head for days. Always in their own lane, nonchalant train-track location shots and glitchy-VHS video effects set the scene for the sequel to 2019’s mega-tune Calls.
COSTA – DRIVEWAY FT. LAKSHANE
(ASHINI COSTA / ANDREW FARAM)
An international collaboration between Sri Lankan megastar Costa and Melbourne’s own Lakshane interweave both English and Sinhala lyrics in a mellow offering. Shot between the two countries, making solid use of CGI effects, “Driveway” has run quickly up numbers in the island nation and offers another dimension to the continuing global reach of artists from the AU.
NOKS78 – CHAT
Brisbane driller Noks78 announces his arrival on the explosive “Chat.” While dark, masked-up posse’ clips are the prominent aesthetic in Aus Hip-Hop in 2020, the Forest Lake rapper switches his flows outside the usual patterns and delivers with a unique harsh cadence which will set him apart from the crown.
