King Kapisi is one of my favourite South Pacific artists.
He’s the first hip hop artist in New Zealand to receive the prestigious Silver Scroll Award at the APRA Awards for Songwriter of the Year (Reverse Resistance, 1999).
Also, a really chill guy to hang out with.
This was taken at a J. Williams album launch, just before J. took to the mic to entertain everyone.
I have a favourite release, and it’s the music video below. A collaboration with another favourite kiwi artist, Che Fu.
