SWIDT - Onehunga to the maximum

From RNZ Music, 1:10 pm on 29 July 2017

SWIDT are the Onehunga hip hop crew breaking out of their home suburb with their new album Stoneyhunga.

Fiercely local, the album is an ode to the suburb they grew up in and is packed with highly specific references easily recognised by those that grew up in the area.

Combining their local rhymes with world-class production from fellow Onehunga local, Smokeygotbeatz, Stoneyhunga is destined to become a classic for New Zealand hip hop fans as the SWIDT crew set their sights on the rest of the world.
