Get ready for hip-hop’s golden child Kirklandd to bring RISE around Australia, as he announces a huge tour

Kirklandd is an MC from the nation’s capital, but you’d have no trouble mistaking him for a time traveller straight out of the 90’s, when golden age American hip-hop was at it’s peak.

This budding rapper is pushing all the right buttons so far, pulling together a string of kickass releases to his name since his career starting. The second-to-most recent, VISIONS is a dramatic, vitriolic hip-hop track complemented by the soothing, choral vocals of Chloe Au Fait.

Canberra’s golden child of hip-hop Kirklandd is hitting the road once again, spitting his smooth, 90s-inspired tunes all the way down the East Coast.

Less than a week ago Kirklandd dropped his freshest slice – RISE featuring Mondecreen. It’s after this cracking track that he’s named his tour, and you can jump on board pretty much throughout December.

The Aussie hip-hop scene catches some flak, but top shelf MCs have been popping up everywhere recently, and Kirklandd is happy to be one of the pioneers riding this heaving genre wave.
