South Auckland hip hop trio Smashproof — Tyree, Young Sid and Deach — arrrived on the New Zealand music scene in 2005 with their club hit 'Ride 'Til I Die'. Debut album The Weekend dropped in 2009. That year 'Brother', a portrait of South Auckland street life, cemented the group's reputation both in New Zealand and Australia. It also set a new local record after spending eleven weeks atop the Kiwi charts. Although each of the trio has released solo albums, Smashproof continue to perform.
