Bio

3K was formed in 2017 by Melbourne friends Moey, Eissa, Beluga, and Benny Lago with an aim to represent Melbourne’s postcode as a growth corridor for Hip Hop music. Rappers Beluga, Eissa and rapper/producer Benny Lago make up the vocalists in 3K, each boasting distinct flows and delivery, meanwhile, DJ and manager Moey holds it down on the business end.

With a steady ascension in Melbourne’s music scene over the past 3 years, we’ve seen 3K drop their debut EP Don’t Panic, a collaborative project alongside Agung Mango in 2019 titled OPENFORBUSINESS, and a string of hype singles including the Hamley-produced ‘Bring a Friend’ and most recently ‘Swipe’. In the few short years since 3K burst onto the scene they have been able to watch their supporters grow cult-like. Following a 2020 that was tainted by pandemics and cancellations, 3K are gearing up for a considerably bigger 2021. We caught up with 3K to hear more about their rapid growth, their evolving sound and their reference-loaded raps.

there's a torch flickering through blinds onto 3k here. it's mysterious, intriguing and i feel like i'm only seeing snippets through the darkness.

Melbourne's answer to Migos coming through with the sauce for this new one. It's not about the brags or any one hook with this group; it's all about the feeling and this one feels tough and expensive.
