"Not many, if any ..." Aotearoa hip hop was turned on its head when Christchurch rapper, Scribe, burst onto the scene in 2003 with his debut single, 'Stand Up/Not Many'. It shot to number one and stayed there for an impressive 12 weeks, helping to propel his first album The Crusader into the top position - making Scribe the first Kiwi artist to simultaneously have a number one single and a number one album. It's since sold in excess of five times platinum here and in Australia. An icon of homegrown hip hop, Scribe's second album, Rhymebook was released in 2007.
