Rapper, Tom Francis

He's only been rapping for a year, and he's already topping the iTune's charts. Hawke's Bay musician, Tom Francis, hadn't even played an instrument a year ago. Now he's knocking global superstar Drake off the number one spot, and it all came from a chance recording session in Hollywood.

His debut album Underestimated launched several weeks ago under the label Black Market Enterprises.
