Sir T

Bio

Sir T is one of the most exciting newcomers to New Zealand Hip-Hop, signed to Move The Crowd Records, and mentored by NZ Hip-Hop's brightest star, Sid Diamond (Young Sid).

A Beachaven/North Shore resident, Sir T ignites audiences with his range of skills, possesses a relentless work ethic and a blazing creative drive. Like his MTC label mates, Sir T brings real life stories to his music that gives it credibility and resonance with his audience.

Making his presence felt in the local Hip-Hop scene, Sir T learnt his trade with a neighbourhood crew called the Assassinz. "I got hooked on what I was hearing around me. The boys used to just chill, drink and rap away to someone playing the guitar, but then I heard a track they recorded on to a CD and straight away thought to myself…that's me!"

Carrying his influences from the American Hip-Hop game, Sir T got to work on making original tracks with his newfound circle, working hard on his skills and improving each day. At 17 years old Sir T joined a crew called Shore Syndicate.

"I learnt a lot from my days with the Syndicate, but to be honest the music we were producing wasn't me - it was too commercial. The main thing I did take from the Syndicate was the experiences of performing live on a stage. Without those types of experiences I wouldn't be here, so I am grateful and thankful to have been a part of that little learning curve as well."

In 2012 Sir T released his debut album Walk With Me, one of the more underrated album's released from the New Zealand hip hop community this year. Honesty and real talk were the motivations for the album. With tracks like More Than Music Sir T explains how hip hop became more to him than just music… it has became a way of life to him. Forgot Me discusses a topic a lot of people are to frightened to even touch on or talk about. He was able to not only do that, but also choose to release it as a single to get the message out.

Sir T is a force to be reckoned with!
