NJE is a solo hip hop artist hailing from Campbelltown in Sydney Australia, (Originally born in New Zealand). He has always had a love & passion for Hip Hop and started writing in 1999. In December 2005 he released his debut album NJE – Life’s Scripturez, without a label which he self distributed to various stores around AUS such as JB HI FI & online…
In May 2008 NJE followed up his debut with a new mixtape titled The Independent Hustlers Mixtape with DJ D-Kutz, to give his fans a taste of what to expect in the future. The mixtape showcased a mix of soulful beats with some underground street tracks that was very well received by his fast growing fanbase.
The mixtape also spawned an underground hit with the live favorite Broke Man’s Bounce which gained airplay on NOVA in Adelaide, plus gained some play on Triple J briefly. The positive feedback from the mixtape sparked up a tour of Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and back to Sydney. All shows were quite successful and featured some of Australia’s finest up and comers like Pez & 360, K21, Social Change, Chase, Offensive Linesmen (Unda Dwella & Plague – Now Split), Acizm, The High Knights, Oseven, Fortay, Phatchance, Tycotic, Drake & Johnny Utah, Untaymable and many more.
In early 2008 NJE joined a new label Soul Connect Records, the label is currently set to release NJE’s new album From The Outside Looking In.
