Introduction to Australian Hip-Hop 

Australian hip-hop has it’s very own flavor in the international hip-hop community, and is slowly going global. Artists are making their way offshore and gaining a following, and a few have even toured America with the greats. If you’ve never actually heard anything from Austuralia before, start with Hilltop Hoods and Bliss N Eso, but keep it mind, it is not representative of the entire scene. There is more to Aussies than Iggy.
