Best New Hip-Hop: September

Every single month we are gifted to a plethora of incredible new Hip-Hop coming out of Australia, here are some of the best new tunes to come from the month of September. 

Figuero Jones – Hustleman Sound

Perths own Figuero Jones dropped a new mixtape in September, titled Hustleman Sound, which featured some of the most impressive and sonically diverse songs to come out of the west in 2017.

Flaunting a plethora of styles with a mass of 6k homies on the project, the Home Baked artist put on himself and his city in what is undoubtedly one of the most polished projects to be released within Australia’s Hip-Hop scene in some time, although we can’t see this staying underground for long. It’s just too damn good.

Nico Ghost – Jackie Brown

Melbourne artist Nico Ghost returned last month with a bang, delivering the RnB / Hip-Hop fusion that is Jackie Brown.

Nico Ghost has been one of the countries most exciting and unique up-and-coming artists for some time now, and the release of Jackie Brown has us eager to hear more from the burn city rapper as 2017 comes to a close.

I AM D – Good For Now

I AM D didn’t stop dropping in September, gifting us with yet another solid cut with Good For Now, his sixth single for the year.

The latest offering from D is a smooth, mellow stream of consciousness that has the Brisbane native delivering some of his most honest, raw words and experiences through his trademark flows.

Having already released six new songs in 2017, it feels selfish to ask for more, but with every drop being as good as the last, how can we not.

Cult Shøtta – Planned Out 2.0 (ft. Manu Crook$)

We need more of this collaboration ASAP.

Sydney duo Cult Shøtta linked up with Manu Crook$ on the official re-work of their original tune Planned Out, in what is 2 minutes of pure heat on Planned Out 2.0. Each of these artists can’t seem to put a foot wrong.

Used to compare me to Chance and now I got the juice

imbi the girl – V.I.P.

imbi the girl backed up her debut single Acidic, and its enormous reception, with yet another gripping hit, this time with the personal, love-struck joint V.I.P..

Making it two from two with her first career offerings, imbi perhaps has one of the most raw yet distinctive styles in Australia, with her swooning, spoken word-esque delivery taking you in from the very first lyric.

Leng Hock – This Way

Sydney-sider Leng Hock came through with a euphoric, stunning new single in September, with the ultra-sensual ultra-slick new track This Way.

Leng Hock has something in his tone and sharp cadences that just make you want to listen, and want to hear more, and following the masterpiece that This Way is, we are seriously eager for whats to come.


Burn city’s own Elapidae has been consistently dropping hard, fierce anthems throughout 2017, and LINKED UP is yet another one added to the collection.

Repping Alcoholic Family alongside a host of other talented, rising artists in MLB, Elapidae describes the new single as ‘old shit’, which has us wondering, if that’s old, how good will the ‘new shit’ be?

 Gamirez, Erik Sanders, Boy Graduate, Dex, Agnus, Savilian, Tides, Droopo and more..

September also gifted us with a afrobeat-inspired new jam from 6k rapper Gamirez, an international link-up for WVS signee Erik Sanders, yet another fire Boy Graduate x DEX collaboration, a silky, auto-tuned ballad from burn city songwriter/producer Agnus, an electronic vibe by the way of Savilian, Tides and Kraznov and a brand new banger from one of the countries most promising artists with pen in hand, Droopo, PLUS MORE.. which you can find below.
