Aotearoa Hip Hop

Aotearoa Hip Hop

Hip hop supremo and former Rip it Up editor Philip Bell (aka DJ Sir-Vere) drops his top 10 selection of hip hop music videos from Aotearoa. The clips mark the evolution of an indigenous style, from the politically conscious (Dam Native, King Kapisi) to the internationalists (Scribe, Savage). It includes iconic, award-winning efforts from directors Chris Graham, Jonathan King, and more. Bell writes here about his picks, and the history of Kiwi hip hop.
