Bio

Nooky isn't likely to jump on the bandwagon, he is more likely to steal the bandwagon do doghies up and down the Main Street before cruising back out to Nowra to fire bomb it then chill with the cuzzo's.

Nooky burst into the Sydney Hip Hop scene in 2010, his technical rap style and thought provoking lyrics propelled him forward. He's Yuin blood line and culture informs he's music, he pulls no punches when his culture and people are under fire, he remains unapologetically honest while delivering unique and tactful music.

After moving to Sydney from the regional town of Nowra on the south coast of NSW he quickly gained the attention of he's peers, touring nationally with The Last Kinection and collaborating with Radical Son and The Herd delivering there take on the Sam Cook anthem 'A Change Is Gonna Come' for Like a Version on jjj. Nooky has been fortunate enough to work internationally after a chance meeting and cypher with Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas at the Block, Redfern. Taboo was taken with Nooky's rhymes and style so flew him out to LA collaborate on a track and experience the lifestyle.

Nooky has graced the stage with many high profile Australian artists, opening for Urthboy, Briggs, Jimblah, The Daily Meds and touring with P Smurf.

You sound furious. It's great to hear you channel it into something as pointed and purposeful as this.

"F*ck rap, you can have that back / go and hashtag that"
Nooky has shown a lot of growth since dropping the 'Yung' from his name. This is proof. Looking forward to hearing more.
