Aotearoa hip-hop artist Tipene has unveiled his first single ‘We No Muck Around’ taken from his now released EP of the same name.

The single sees Tipene represent his Aotearoa East Coast hip-hop roots with the track being sonically reminiscent of the early 2000’s nostalgic sound making ‘We No Muck Around’ a track that is purpose built for the summer.

The upcoming five-track EP sees Tipene join forces on the beatmaking with multi-award winning producer 10A (Tenei Kesha), who has worked alongside the likes of KYLE(U.S) Scribe, Ladi6, King Kapisi, JessB, Kings and more. 

Tipene & his music both fiercely embrace his Māori heritage, as he aims to uplift, empower and ‘re-indigenise’ Māori through the power of his music. 

The new EP arrived December 16, just in time for Aotearoa summer. This summer is set to be one of Tipene’s busiest ones yet, with support slots on L.A.B’s upcoming regional tour and other major festival slots to be announced.
