In a scene dominated by bravado and chest-puffery, Lisi offers a refreshingly relatable and grounded approach to rap.
Since bursting onto the scene with his Gold-accredited single 'Say Less' in 2019, Lisi has become one of the most omnipresent local forces in hip-hop, accumulating over 30 million streams and 10 million Youtube views in the opening chapter of his career.
With a focus on intricate storytelling and personal lyricism, Lisi's music delves into everyday life in the 4300 and the real issues faced by his people, evidenced by his widely-praised Average Man EP in 2020. Offering a contemporary take on classic hip-hop sonics, Lisi's considered sound has earned him an intergenerational and international fanbase. With live music now opening up across Australia, and a swelling army of supporters, Lisi will bring his energetic live show to stages across 2021, as evidenced by his recent show-stopping performance at Lunar Electric Festival.
With over five million streams and 3 million video views, supporting Lisi on tour is four-piece group Goodna collective Th4 W3ST.
Consisting of Wrecka, Vikz, JR and Snoopy, Th4 W3ST tunes “Good Dayz”, “Ride With Me”, “Problems” and “Hustle” have become local anthems, helping put Goodna and Ipswich well and truly on the local hip-hop map.
Th4 W3st all share a Samoan cultural background with strong musical influences from the greats like Biggie and Tupac, whom they grew up listening to.
The W3st are making music with a message – to show hope, good intentions, and a way forward for their community, with the goal of inspiring and nurturing others.
