Arks is the young 16 year old Melbourne emcee bringing a refreshing style to local hip-hop. Arks started at the early age of 12 penning down his thoughts and rhymes to acoustic beats. Arks, although young knows too well about the trials of tribulations with stories of love, heartbreak, hardships and joy.
As his knowledge for hip-hop and the culture grew, so did his love for the art. At The Age of 14, Arks released his first mixtape The Dead Poets, based upon the famous Robin Williams film, covering such beats as Talib Kewli’s – Get By and Lyrical Commissions – Indicted. At 15 Arks had cracked the Triple J Unearthed top 10 Charts with ‘Get By’ and released 2 mixtapes within a year, Turning Dreams Into Reality and Causing Conversation.
Growing as a producer and Emcee, Arks became apart of the all Australian hip-hop crew Generation Rhyme and local Melbourne trio Kids Of The Trade with fellow school mate Dibe, De La Krem and producer, The Architect. 2011 seams like a bright year for Arks with 3 mixtapes on the way and a respected fan base. So go and listen to the story of the underage Australian, Arks. Live By the motto. ‘Dreams Are Reality’
