Bio

Originating from Ghana in West Africa comes Brisbane-based Hip Hop Artist IIICONIC, who has made serious waves across the country off the back of his exciting and eclectic new-wave sound.

At the very fore-front of the new breed of Australian hip hop that engages a worldwide audience IIICONIC has spent the last 24 months building up an impressive CV of singles, all written, recorded and produced himself. These singles gained immense traction online, racking up hundreds of thousands of streams and finding IIICONIC charting at number 31 in ‘Australia’s Viral 50’ playlist on Spotify. In addition to hitting the viral charts, IIICONIC has appeared in Spotify’s New Music Friday, A1 Hip-Hop, Urban Flavour, The Drip, All Aussie Hip Hop’ and the cover of ‘Mellow Styles twice. On an Apple Music front he has appeared on ‘Best Of The Week,’ ‘The A-List: Hip-Hop,’ ‘New Fire’ and ‘Breaking Hip-Hop’ playlists, as well as multiple spins on The New Australia on Beats 01 Official.

With an already adoring, tight-knit fan base, IIICONIC has brought his high-octane live show on the road for a national tour of Australia spanning across 5 states from Brisbane to Melbourne. To open 2019 IIICONIC headlined Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Big Top Luna Park in Sydney presented by Justin Cassin in front of 3000 people. Following that a tour spanning 2 states with Goodlife Presents as well as supporting international star TYGA at the Fortitude Music Hall in his home town of Brisbane to finish off the year..

IIICONIC’s attitude, sound and energy is as exciting as it is refreshing, and with the rapid growth of the Australian Hip-Hop scene, the hungry young artist's next move is to dominate the new wave before flaunting his music on a global scale.

Loved playing this one so much on TOPS last Friday. So much that I wanted to add it to my Spotify playlist straight away so I could have it on repeat. That intoxicating, drill-like production captures the perfect late night feel.
