Savage is one of Kiwi music's most successful exports of the noughties - penning infectious hit 'Swing', whose bass-rich chorus gained US attention after featuring in film Knocked Up (another Savage track features on Superbad). The South-Auckland raised hip-hopper cut his teeth in Deceptikonz before launching his solo career with 2005 album Moonshine, which went gold in Australia. He began making in-roads in the US while working with Akon, and released Savage Island in 2009, followed by Mayhem & Miracles in 2012.
