Hip Hop / Rap, Ammonation, YGB (NZ)
Following two full years of writing and recording, growing the spiritual fruit for this new record, Rwandan-Kiwi rapper and hometown champion Raiza Biza emerges in a new chapter of his career and vision, finding a new freedom in the sound. This chapter is encapsulated in Bygones, his first solo album since the Day & Night, released in 2016.
Having operated as a staunchly independent artist over the last decade, touring Australia, Europe and China by his own sheer force of will, this new chapter includes a signing to Australian independent label, Low Key Source. The fiercely independence stems from his YGB days, growing in the underground Auckland scene. Now with a small team around him, Biza admits he can “think more as an artist. I can step away from being alone and step outside my comfort zone, challenging those old patterns and mindsets.”
