'Brother' is a song about Smashproof's South Auckland neighbourhood and how these hip hop stars want it to change - crime and violence are not the only options. It's an urgent message, delivered via a simple but powerful drive-by concept by director Chris Graham.

 

The clip made it into mainstream news media for a scene bluntly inspired by a high profile incident where a businessman stabbed a young tagger. Features raspy-voiced singer-songwriter Gin Wigmore as chorus.

Little needs to be said about this incredible song, other than it’s a slice of NZ musical history, and Chris Graham’s video is the perfect companion.
