Why do we like this?

The Australian hip-hop scene is on the rise and one artist set to break out this year is 18-year-old iiiConic. The Ghana-born Brisbane-raised MC takes influence from modern hip-hop sounds with latest single "Upgrade" a fantastic example of his talent. The trap production isn't anything new, but the sampled horns give it a grandiose feeling while iiiConic's flow is compelling. 

"Upgrade" has been released as part of Australian record label WVS' compilation WVS: Next Gen 2018. The 11 artists on the mixtape were picked by the WVS team as ones to watch this year, with the compilation giving each artist a new outlet to showcase their work.

Along with the compilation you can stream for free here, WVS are holding the NEXT GEN 2018 Live Showcase​ featuring all 11 finalists from the class of 2018. The event will take place at The Evelyn Hotel, in Fitzroy, on January 25 (Australia Day Eve).

If you're a hip-hop fan who lives in Melbourne be sure to get along and support the future of the genre here in Australia.
