Tipene is a hiphop artist based in the Hawkes Bay and recently signed to Empire Records NZ. Tipene is known for his sharp delivery and tones switching seamlessly between English and Te reo Maori. He has just released his first single + video titled “West Side Hori” from his debut album “Tautoko” (Support) which was filmed in his hometown, Flaxmere. Tipene brings a “breath of fresh air” to Aotearoa Hiphop in a similar way that DAM Native did in the mid 90’s. Tune in to hear Tipene on heavy rotation through out this week.
