Top Australian Rappers

While the origins of Australian hip hop dates back to the late 1980s, the 1990s was the era that the foundation for Australian rappers was set.  Some of the artists of the local hip hop scene’s early days were mostly a large influx of Australian rap groups.  These groups included Sound Unlimited Posse, Hilltop Hoods, Def Wish Cast, Koolism, Downsyde, and 1200 Techniques, amongst others.  Not to leave out solo artists of the 90s and 00s, like Bias B, Sleek the Elite, Pegz, and a handful of others, but the true foundation of Australian hip hop began with top rap groups.

As we enter the 2020s, Australian rappers have taken the country’s rap scene to new levels.  Since Iggy Azalea’s 2014 hit “Fancy”, she has arguably became Australia’s biggest star, within all avenues of entertainment.  While some may criticize her for various reasons, the numbers that she has produced since the mid-2010s shows how Iggy Azalea is not only Australia’s biggest star, but one of the world’s most celebrated pop stars.

Still only a teenager, The Kid LAROI has quickly emerged as one of the global hip hop community’s number one artists.  From top melodic raps to being one of the most lyrical, it will be hard for anyone to not respect the artistry of The Kid LAROI. If anyone is looking for a true hip hop artist and not the popish rappers of today’s generation, then ChillinIT is the rapper for you.  With his Australian accent and rapid flow, ChillinIT delivers a style of rap that is often missing. 

If there are streets within the communities of Australia, then ONEFOUR represents for them.  As Chicago, New York, and the UK popularized the drill music scene, ONEFOUR are the leaders of the drill genre within Australian hip hop. Then there is Hooligan Hefs, and one thing about him his music you will not be bored or get tired of listening to his music.  Whether it is street music or music to turn up and party to, Hooligan Hefs provides a wide range of content. 

Carrying on the tradition of Australian rap groups, the HP Boyz are among the top of the list. From their music to their visuals, the HP Boyz often display another side of Australia.  Years of consistency may not have landed Kersert he top Australian rapper on the list, but with over ten years under his belt he is the most respected.  A lyrical genius, time has only sharpened his skills as one can see the improvement from his very first song to his latest release.

A true gem and the most standout artist among the roster of Australian hip hop, Tkay Maidza’s creativity that consists of a mixture of soul and hip hop gives her a never dull moment in music. With a little over year of being in the rap game, the melodies of Youngn Lipz has quickly surpassed him to being the top rising artist among Australian rappers.  Listening to Lisi’s music not only will you get insights on his life, all which makes his music more relatable, but also will be motivated and inspired.
