Nooky isn’t likely to jump on the bandwagon, he is more likely to steal the bandwagon, do doughies up and down the Main Street before cruising back out to Nowra to fire bomb it then chill with the cuzzo’s.
Nooky burst into the Sydney Hip Hop scene in 2010, his technical rap style and thought provoking lyrics propelled him forward. He’s Yuin blood line and culture informs his music, he pulls no punches when his culture and people are under fire, he remains unapologetically honest while delivering unique and tactful music.
After moving to Sydney from the regional town of Nowra on the south coast of NSW, he quickly gained the attention of he’s peers, touring nationally with The Last Kinection and collaborating with Radical Son and The Herd, delivering their take on the Sam Cook anthem ‘A Change Is Gonna Come’ for Like a Version on triple J. Nooky has been fortunate enough to work internationally after a chance meeting and cypher with Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas at the Block in Redfern. Taboo was taken with Nooky’s rhymes and style so flew him out to LA collaborate on a track and experience the lifestyle.
Nooky has graced the stage with many high profile Australian artists, opening for Urthboy, Briggs, Jimblah, The Daily Meds and touring with P Smurf.
Mentors have helped guide Nooky’s development as an artist throughout his career, they have included some of the best in the game. The likes of Wire, Briggs, Jimblah and Weno have made sure Nooky kept his shit tight and on track. The Aboriginal Hip Hop community has invested heavily in Nooky; offering time, commitment and generosity…this fact isn’t lost on him and he actively pays forward the opportunity afforded to him.
