Rise! The Launch Tour

Just over two years ago, photographer Michelle Grace Hunder began the concept of her Australian Hip-Hop photo book RISE. Through the unprecedented support of both artists and fans via a Pozible campaign, Michelle’s dream of creating the first book dedicated to portraying musicians within the Australian Hip-Hop community is now a long-awaited reality!

With RISE now in the final stages of printing & production, MGH has embarked on the next stage of RISE – a national tour.

Michelle’s longtime friends Remi, Briggs, Mantra & Grey Ghost are hitting the road in August, along with Dylan Joel, Jaytee, Flagrant, Sensible J and Mistress of Ceremony. The tour will have each artist perform action packed mini-sets, highlighting their ongoing support for Michelle, and for the groundbreaking achievement that RISE represents for Australian Hip-Hop.

If the tour’s lineup wasn’t already enough, there is a further bonus added. Each leg of the tour will feature the RISE Cypher with surprise guest artists (also featured in the RISE book) taking to the stage at each show, freestyling a performance of their choice. The cypher performers will be kept secret until the actual show, until then it’s going to be a guessing game.

Winding around a number of venues in VIC, SA, WA, NSW and QLD, Hunder and her crew are ready to give Hip-Hop fans a long awaited taste of the photography from RISE, and the musicians that helped make it happen.

Featuring Mantra, Briggs, Remi, Grey Ghost, Dylan Joel, Mistress of Ceremony & DJ's Jaytee, Flagrant & Sensible J
