Madchild

Acclaimed rapper Madchild, a recipient of the prestigious Juno Award, has announced his triumphant return to Australia & New Zeal& for early 2024. The Canadian emcee will embark on his biggest tour of the nation’s capitals yet. Madchild is no stranger to Australian & New Zealand fans, as he has played to packed sold out tours as both a solo artist & with hip-hop trio Swollen Members, & he shot his iconic music video for "The Jackal", which has now surpassed 20 million views, in Melbourne.             

Madchild hails from the golden era of hip-hop when he grew up working at Extra Large in Haight-Ashbury, a clothing store owned by the Beastie Boys. From there he sharpened his pen & was inducted into the Rock Steady Crew alongside Dilated Peoples. It all attests to his powerful collaborations with industry heavyweights Jurassic 5, Talib Kweli, Nelly Furtardo & video director/comic book legend Todd McFarlane.                   

Madchild's trajectory in the hip-hop landscape over the past few years has been nothing short of remarkable. He joined forces with Tom MacDonald to birth the collaborative album "Killing The Neighbours," birthing chart-toppers "Bad News" & "Sober," both commanding a spot on YouTube's trending page. Following this triumph, Madchild proceeded to captivate audiences with "Mobsters & Monsters," a collaborative masterpiece with the burgeoning San Diego emcee Obnoxious. The album bore witness to Madchild's mastery of penmanship, paying homage to authentic hip-hop lyricism & accompanied by head-bobbing beats.

Earlier this year, Madchild collaborated with renowned multi-platinum producer & songwriter Michael Bradford on the track "Ya Don't Stop", which was selected by ESPN as a song of the month. The track was heard as a musical backdrop during the NBA Finals to millions of viewers.

Madchild will be taking Australian artist ‘Kogz’ along for the entire tour after a stellar past few years on the local circuit proving himself one of the hottest prospects on stage & in the Australian music industry. Kogz is sure to expand his rapidly growing fanbase alongside a legend of the game & debuting live in New Zealand with another force in the Australian hip-hop scene Fortay at Large also excitedly joining the New Zealand dates for his first time also.
