Familiar to the stage Nutkaze has battled all around Sydney he has made a name for himself as both a deadly rhymer and a story teller. He has rocked the mic Opening For Bone Thugs, 2Face Idibia, and other artists including shows at countless other clubs in Sydney. As well as performing at many festivals and charity events, Nutkaze has had his fair share of media attention in 3D world, The edge 96.1, SWR FM, Hobart's Sea FM and Australia's own Hip Hop TV.
Recently he has also won the award for MOST INSPIRATIONAL ARTIST/SONGWRITER at the Afro Australian Movie and Music Awards (AAMMA's) and is now currently signed to Goldminded Records (GMD).
Nutkaze has recently relesed his debut solo mixtape "The Duality Mixtape - Volume 1" and is currently working on an upcoming full length album hitting the streets late this year.
Writing for Duality, Nutkaze has tapped into the more socially aware side of himself which is a strong theme in his music. The reason for showing this side of himself according to Nutkaze is "To educate and open the eyes of those who are blind to tyranny, injustice, oppression and even issues in our immediate society. Hip-hop has two sides to it just as we all do. There is the entertainment and the education just as in every person there is the good and the bad. There is a duality of some sort in every living creature. This album is holding a mirror up to our world and ourselves.”
Nutkaze believes that everything is temporary... life is temporary, money, even more so. "Think about all the money that rappers these days are talking about... If we die tomorrow, can we take any of that with us? What remains after everything is gone? When we meet our maker, whoever you believe in, and we are asked what we did here on earth are we going to talk about the material things which we pursued for all our lives, or the people who's lives we have changed? The only thing that matters is not the money and the lifestyle which we live, but the people we touch with our words while we were here. The people which we show the TRUTH and the way to the truth."
Nutkaze’s story is that of the path of the fallen and the story of redemption, which we all face. the duality in every human being. Everyone has a dark side and everyone has a light inside them. It's the age old struggle between good and evil...he’s just telling YOUR story….
….And there you have the unique difference between Nutkaze and the common rapper. Currently working on collaborations with a wide variety of both underground and well known musicians, this talented artist will find a way to get his message across to you. Astounding lyrically he is truly a profound writer and an amazing creative chanel for what you’ve felt, thought or experienced at least once in your lifetime.
To experience life is to be faced with ‘Duality’ and to experience Nutkaze is to be faced with REAL hip hop…
