King Kapisi


On stage Wellington-born Samoan King Kapisi, aka Bill Urale, is a Kiwi hip-hop legend.

He’s performed at nearly every major New Zealand music event and alongside The Black Eyed Peas, Janet Jackson and the Beastie Boys, to name just a few.

Back home in Blockhouse Bay , however, the basketball-loving father-of-four is a lot like you and me – he loves hanging with his family and friends.

King Kapisi has embarking on an extensive Australian tour during March and April, having kicked things off last week in Wollongong. Fear not if you missed him then, for he's in the country for a good month yet, and plays next this Friday (March 12) at POW in Melbourne, with another dozen or so gigs lined up around the country (including all the big centres: Perth, Adelaide, Darwin, Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane). Other acts on the tour are Spikey Tee (UK) and Resin Dogs (Aust).

Award-winning Samoan hip-hop artist King Kapisi (Bill Urale) is exploring new markets in Europe, Britain and the United States, armed with the release of his second album '2nd Round Testament' and a $10,000 grant from the Pacific Arts Committee of Creative New Zealand.

King Kapisi's first album 'Savage Thoughts', is nearing Platinum sales while his second album '2nd Round Testament', was released last week through Festival Mushroom Records. The second single from this album 'U Can't Resist Us' (featuring Che Fu) is currently sitting at #11 on the national New Zealand singles chart, and was certified Gold upon release.

In his own words, "With two albums and more than eight music videos under my belt, I believe this is the right time for me to move into the wider international arena."
