The New Australia

The New Australia

Much like the rest of the world, Australia responded to the growing prevalence of hip-hop by exploding with young, diverse artists from every corner of the continent. Manu Crooks and Carmouflage Rose are bringing trap to the region; Sampa the Great delivers powerful poetry over flowing jazz; Indigenous artist Baker Boy spits in Yolngu Matha language—the first to rap in his native dialect; Kwame is burning up dance floors with a gravelly flow and deep bass. Our editors regularly update this playlist—if you hear something you like, add it to your library.
