The restless yet calculated mind behind the now infamous ‘If the City Had A Voice’ mixtape series, Purpose is hardly a new face in the Australian Hip-Hop scene. With the roots of a freestyle/battle rapper, he represented his city successfully nationwide early on, leading to a coveted spot in the Scribble Jam MC tournament in Cincinnati at 17. In short, Purpose was a wordsmith before he was legal.
With fast-paced, think on your feet lyricism to be envied, there is no stopping Purpose when he takes the time to sit down and craft a song. Already responsible for 7 street releases, both solo & group efforts spanning the last 5 years, Purpose is recognised not only as a rapper, but as a killer Producer with a diverse and fresh sound.
Purpose has supported Illy in sold out shows nationwide, was invited to play the 2010 Big Day Out with Pagen Elypsis, and has also supported Drapht on his home soil, Adelaide. His on-point, energetic live show has already toured the country extensively. South Australia has surely produced some of the biggest names in hip hop and Purpose is flying the flag high for the next generation.
‘Where It Starts’ out soon.
