South African born, Australian raised rapper KG is making no apologies with his politically charged and thought provoking music. The social justice advocate is sure to set tongues wagging with his no holds barred approach to tackling the taboo topics of society today.
With hundreds of live shows, MTV/Channel V, Triple J Unearthed rotation and support slots for Lupe Fiasco, Bone Thugs n Harmony, Black Milk and Ice Cube behind him, KG has carved out a name for himself as a storyteller and potent lyricist. Now he’s back with a renewed sense of himself, his music and his roots. His forthcoming EP will explore his family’s history, apartheid in his birth country and the often polarising conversation about racism in Australia. KG intends his music to light a fire in the minds of young Australians and to get them thinking about the experiences of those around them. Following on from his resolute singles ‘All Black’ and ‘Forgive Them’, the new single “Mabo Martin, Mandela” is a tribute song to his most inspirational black leaders in history and a call to action on the current racial climate.
Due for release in mid 2019 the, the EP project is set to bring KG’s unique perspective and hope for the future together with the powerhouse production of collaborators. Fierce and uncompromising in focus, KG’s new sound is a statement from an artist whose vision has arrived.
