Discovery: Ninazu

Ninazu is an Australian hip hop artist who take on the subject of destructive cycles through his new track Ammonite.

By Graeme Smith

Though it’s a topic often explored in music, it’s one that Ninazu makes his own through laidback, soulful instrumentals and a story that brims with authentic detail. Acting as narrator, free-flowing verses tell the story of someone who struggles with anger and drug use.

A sung chorus by collaborator Stormm brings the message home and provides important texture in a track that, to me, feels flawless. Ninazu are new to me, and I don’t know much about him yet, but I will certainly be keeping an eye on him.
