Bio

For Canberra hip hop artist KG, his craft isn’t just about making music that pops, it is much larger than this immediate effect. With his inspired rhymes and impassioned delivery, KG is speaking up for those in his community who cannot.

An emerging voice encouraging positivity and progression on a personal level, on a societal level and on a musical tip, KG looks directly at a diversifying Australian music scene - that still has some ways to go in terms of embracing powerful young people with things to say - with confidence and a brand new message in his new single, ‘CHANGE’.

First making an impact with his debut single ‘Mabo Martin Mandela’ last year, KG’s connection with his African heritage and culture has always remained a strong one when it’s come to threading these influences through his music. His father, who was a freedom fighter alongside Nelson Mandela, passed down this sense of justice and drive in pushing for social equality and awareness of the issues that face young people in particular.
