If you’re a Hip Hop fan in Australia, you should by now know the name JK-47. Whether you know him as the Triple J Unearthed Artist of the Year, or from his jaw-dropping Like A Version where he put a fantastic twist on 'Changes' by 2Pac, you would already know that the talented Indigenous artist is a force to be reckoned with. It's no surprise to see acts like Illy, Chillinit, Allday, Nerve and many more showing him love.
At the age of fourteen, JK-47 began writing rhymes & rapping. Over the years his name has become all too familiar, not just on home turf in the shire of Tweed, but also right across the Australian hip-hop landscape. His ability to put pen to pad & produce timeless lyrics, painting pictures with his music, is second to none.
Having already scored a triple j feature album with his stellar debut album ‘Made For This’, nominations for Best New Act at the Rolling Stone Awards and Acclaim Magazine Rookie of the Year, and being booked for festivals like Groovin The Moo, Splendour In The Grass, BLUESFEST, Strawberry Fields and Yours & Owls, you can’t deny JK-47 is well on the right path for a bright future. The man is on a mission to touch the hearts & minds of those not just his home country, but all around the world. A mission he will achieve.
This event is 18+.
UCLivex would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we work, the Ngunnawal people, and pay our respects to their elders past, present and emerging.
