SWIDT announced to open for Californian rapper YG
American rapper YG has announced that New Zealand’s very own SWIDT will be opening for him at his one-off show at the Logan Campbell Centre in Auckland on June 14.
Hailing from Compton, California, YG has earned his reputation as a compelling story-teller, with a killer live performance since bursting onto the hip-hop scene in the late 2000s with his smash hit ‘Toot It and Boot It’ feat. Ty Dolla Sign. His critically-acclaimed 2016 album STILL BRAZY featured some of the biggest names in the game, from Lil Wayne to Drake.
Meanwhile, hailing from Onehunga, Auckland, SWIDT (See What I Did There?) have been whipping up a frenzy on dancefloors across New Zealand since their debut in 2016 single and video ‘No More Parties in Stoneyhunga’.
Comprised of five members – producer SmokeyGotBeatz (producer TDE / HS87), rap duo SPYCC & INF, Jamal and Boomer Tha GOD – the SWIDT crew lit a fuse in New Zealand’s underground music scene, receiving widespread love for their debut full-length album SmokeyGotBeatz Presents SWIDT vs EVERYBODY and earning nominations for the prestigious Critic’s Choice Award and Best Urban/Hip Hop Album of the Year at the Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards.
The SWIDT boys are now hard at work on their next album and will bring all their tunes and live swag to YG’s party at Logan Campbell Centre on June 14.
Don’t miss your chance to see the heavyweight from Compton, share a stage with Auckland’s emerging hip-hop royalty.
