While Australia’s hip-hop scene has been slow in making its mark with the rest of the world, it can feel like some avenues are limited for emerging artists to really grow and diversify.
Sydney hip-hop duo INQ. are pushing the boundaries and creating their own lane combining music, production and design via their very own platform Culture Club, a band of multidisciplinary Sydney based artists connected by their kindred immigrant upbringings and their encounters with self-identity.
Today, they’ve dropped the visuals to their latest single, ‘Purpose.’
The minds and talent behind the duo – Anthony Bobadilla and Justin Nacua – performed, produced, directed, shot and edited the video by themselves. Incredible. Is there anything they can’t do?
Produced by Pökari and featuring fellow Sydney artist mo aung, the single itself is rather relatable if you listen carefully and can break down the lyrics through their rapid-fire flow (Confession: it took this writer several listens to break it down):
Those who think they don’t have it
Just caught up in old habits
Gotta be free from the past to present
The talent that everybody’s got, a little something, something for the world
It’s just waiting to be nurtured
