Prominent rapper and proud Butchulla man, Birdz, shares his highly awaited sophomore album, LEGACY.
Raised in Katherine, Northern Territory and now based in Naarm / Melbourne, Birdz took to crafting his career-shaping second record alongside the production hand of longtime collaborator and friend, Trials of A.B.Original, plus hand-selected some of Australia’s best-loved artists to feature including Fred Leone, Ngaiire, Thom Crawford and Missy Higgins.
Birdz says of the album’s fruition, "I think the way I approach music and creating really shifted around the time I made a song called, ‘BLACK CHILD’ (ft. Mo’ju) which was on my last project. When I made that video, I really wanted to portray the strength and beauty in who we are as proud Aboriginal people. Moving forward I realise how much that experience impacted me as a father, and as an artist, and becoming more and more conscious of what I’m leaving behind for my son and the future generations. I feel like that’s where the concept for LEGACY was born".
The Feature album is played in full on Thursdays from 10am.
