    7 Australian Hip Hop Artists To Watch In 2020

    7 Australian Hip Hop Artists To Watch In 2020

    Hip-hop from Australia is currently finding considerable international success with the likes of Hilltop Hoods, ChillinIt, Kerser and OneFour all breaking out beyond domestic market success to new audiences. With Australia’s The Kid Laroi also hitting mainstream success in America with his music featured on Lyrical Lemonade and working with the likes of Lil Tecca, Lil Skies, Lil Tjay and more, we take a look at the next top 7 artists to watch from Australia teetering on an international breakthrough in 2020.

    HP Boyz (Melbourne)

    The biggest group to truly emerge in the second half of last year was the HP Boyz trio of Onit, YJ and MWayz out of Melbourne. With a string of hit singles from their smash debut Blueprint to the below viral Engineers to Bad N Bouj to their most recent drop in Moves, HP Boyz have continually progressed. They sold out most of their 7-date international tour of New Zealand late last year and have played major festival shows and support slots throughout Australia, with a large and growing fanbase internationally already. A memorable live show coupled with releasing quality over quantity positions HP Boyz strongly for possible international success.

    Hooligan Hefs (Sydney)

    One of the most original sounds to develop out of Australia in recent years is Sydney’s Hooligan Hefs. Developing his sound since 2017, last year was really his breakout which saw half a dozen big singles released and several festival and major support slots including Tyga along with his own sold out tour. Hooligan Hefs crossover potential into EDM is massive and unique, expect for him to continuing to push his sound into new directions. A fan favorite whose energy transcends music and solidifies his true star power, it’s hard not to like his already iconic moves and language.

    Sampa The Great (Sydney)

    Recent 2x winner of the prestigious Australian Music Prize in both 2017 and 2019 , Sampa has been making waves for herself since the release of her debut project “The Great Mixtape” in 2015. She has since followed this up with two very strong projects in 2017’s mixtape “Birds And The Bee9” and her debut studio album in late 2019’s “The Return”. Drawing on influences including Nina Simone, Lauryn Hill and Mos Def amongst others, the talented and versatile Sampa has already toured domestically and internationally on her own accord significantly. As her fanbase continues to expand through continued quality releases, expect that to continue as she develops herself into an even more of a much sought-after Festival act as comfortable on the main stage as she is performing her own solo tours internationally as well as throughout Australia.

    LISI (Brisbane)

    LISI burst onto the scene in mid-October last year with his single debut “Say Less” that captivated significant attention throughout Australia and internationally from West Brisbane. He followed this great anticipation up successfully with the two singles “The Come Up” and “Got This” on either side of the New Year, before beginning to release music with his group Th4 W3St last month. With a groundswell of support throughout Brisbane already, he is likely to be able to tour internationally in the region in the near future as well as nationally post-COVID-19.

    Youngn Lipz (Sydney)

    Youngn Lipz burst onto the scene in late 2019 with a string of hit singles including the below Misunderstood, Silent, Otherside earlier this year and his most recent Lifestyle with DJ Discretion and the aforementioned Hooligan Hefs. Such a rapid rise has never before be seen at such a scale in Australia and Youngn Lipz has already found himself performing on the biggest of stages in the country and about to commence his own extended solo headline tour throughout Australia. His sound, along with HP Boyz and One Four, has the most natural sound that is likely to be easily absorbed smoothly internationally and if he continues with another hit or two with a notable international feature, 2020 could prove even faster than the last few months of 2019 for him.

    Wombat (Tasmania)

    The trademark rapid-fire delivery that Wombat has become known for has led him to selling out his own solo national tours and he has developed a cult like following that grows every week across Australia. With a stack of his own singles plus memorable collaborations with some of Australia’s best in Fraksha, ChillinIt, Nerve, Greeley and Scotty Hinds he has also been making inroads into the UK and continental Europe of late. With the release of an extended project on the near horizon, expect to see more big things coming up soon.

    Complete (Perth)

    Testament to the age-old adage that hard work pays off, Complete has built a very strong following from the ground up over the last decade slowly but surely. With the successful release of his highly anticipated and eagerly awaited debut solo studio album last year Death Rattle on Warner Music, Complete seems to be levelling up yet again as he continues to expand his diverse catalogue to international audiences. With a bunch of hits already under his built and a nationally renowned live show, we can expect a follow up that will push him even further to new audiences.

    Complete - Jordan

  • ChillinIt Drops Brand New Video "420 Queen Street" Featuring Lil Sknow

    ChillinIt Drops Brand New Video "420 Queen Street" Featuring Lil Sknow

    ChillinIt ft Lil Sknow - 420 Queen Street #42O1

    Australian rapper ChillinIt has just dropped the brand new video "420 Queen Street" featuring Lil Sknow. ChillinIt has been smashing verse after verse and track after track recently in between organising two massive sold out Get Bodied Festivals in Sydney and Brisbane and is set to perform at the Perth Get Bodied Festival at Aberdeen Hotel on the 31st August 2018.

    ChillinIt comes in hard and fast on this track and throws a flurry of punchlines that blend well over the beat. The quick flow suits the beat and the filming editing by Luke Soanes has the clip coming out looking good using shots of Brisbane City at night. Lil Sknow appears at the end with an 8 bar outro.

    ChillinIt ft Lil Sknow - 420 Queen Street Lyrics

     

    I burn out, while i clutch to the wheel,
    then I shift, like gears, take draws from a blunt,
    No breaks, when I overlap the whole pack,
    Catch drifts, formula one.
    I’m still rappin automatic, till I get exhausted,
    rev horses, till the wheels get spun like vroooommmmm...
    Thats gonna gas you up, like Mazda trucks, bruvva iv already won.

    Rep it harder like I’m benihana/with the closed eyes from the marijuana/I’m barrack Obama I’m the leader leader/Yes I see the reaper bring me heavy karma/On a hard road, but it’s getting harder/
    On a hilltop, make ya nosebleed/ When pills popped, sippin henna lagger/I’m a run it up just like I’m Wes naqaima/NOOO

    * 420 420* Test me nada
    keep it hunnid while she stunnin n balenciaga.
    Spit a Riddim in a minute I love it this ain’t a gimmick, I hit then I quit it so don’t text me after.
    Rita Riba with a señorita,
    Smokin cheebah cheebah with a sexy mama
    Got the VB longneck and litre,
    I just sip tequila I don't get the drama

    Police don’t shoot me I don’t got no guns,
    Don’t fuck with jacks I don’t wanna get done,
    Swear that my daddy taught me the art of get the money,
    while mummy take care of her son.
    FAMILY FIRST / DONT GIVE A FUCK
    Word is my bond I’m a die for my blood,
    FAMILY FIRST / DONT GIVE A FUCK
    Smokin the churn we get high in the cut. like ugh....

    I still hit the roach,
    You’ll get jumped like jacks if you skip the rope,
    You’ll get hung laid back when I switch the flow,
    It’s Christmas flow,
    these red and green bitches know,
    stay raw in Dior she ain’t Christian though.
    But my 420fams on shit to blow.
    I switch the flow like pop pop pistols go,
    Cos my mind stays cracked like da vines codeeee....

    Herbs in a bag like lipton.
    Zip code, Trip Two 0, i cop parcels,
    Bastards, stay with the stan lee, marvel.
    Prolly why my nights look new, castle.
    I could damage an amateur cos I’m hardest,
    The rapper get a package and package it for the market,
    The road looks silk, with spliffs that i blow,
    Cos I hit That high road for the online darkness.

    Ugh Ugh , write with pens,
    I keep tools for the wood, like mitre ten,
    But real talk though, I don’t even like my friends,
    I light the sesh and smoke till my life could end.
    I got a few kids, that I once grew with, BACK IN THE DAY,
    snakes might pretend.
    But thats true shit, everyones mad cos THE SHOES FIT MATE,
    get ya sizes then.

    I pack mountains, and climb it then,
    Get violent then, I'm hot cold climates then.
    See I’m a one eyed cyclops pirate then,
    I got barrrrrrrrs mihardy, Im high on sesh,
    And still ride for the team on G shit,
    Play wit a ball like Steve Smith
    Dont test me faced pace gillespie,
    The 420 fam stay raw with the weed lit.

    Brudda im a stoner, on my chief Keith shit,
    I still love Sosa, smoke Seth like Rogen,
    cold like eskis, Got the fear factor,
    like I’m joe Rogan, cos I go beast shit..
    Bruv I'm all over the shop, all over the drop,
    Heavy and come and get it with the flow that I rock,
    The stoner with pot, was over the top, I'm in a nike tee,
    Walk-in to the club and my brudda aint got an iD.

    Walk into the club with my brudda he keep it Hunna ,
    with the keys and the buttonslike bruddas that work in I-T
    Walk in the club and my brudda could slip a couple a hunnas,
    onto his brudda like nothin this shit is visine
    ALL CLEAR, AWW YEH
    420 gonna have a long year,
    Got a middle finger up saying all love,
    420fam staying right here x 2..

    Outro: Im gonna get me that stripper, hunnid bro.
    Re into fade...

    Lil Sknow:
    I just copped some gobs in the valley,
    Getting topped off a bitch in a bally,
    She just wanna take bricks no xany,
    I still take pics for the gram no grammys,
    Yeh, i take pics for the gram no grammys.
    And I'm still sad,
    Im still sad even when I'm happy.

    Catch ChillinIt in Perth at the upcoming Get Bodied Festival.
