When it comes to quality Australian Hip Hop, the most influential name that comes to mind is Bias B. With a career spanning over a decade, he has been at the forefront of the development of the local hip hop scene since the early 90’s. Bias B’s debut release Beezwax not only changed the standard of the local scene but has become a classic and a defining stepping stone in the history of this genre. Bias B then went on to release In Bed With Bias in 2003 and then hit the scene with his 3rd solo in February 2007 entitled Been There Done That featuring the talents of Bigfoot, Dazastah, Bonez and Burna to name a few.
Bias B is an original and leading solo artist who continues to grow and inspire, persistently keeping his music moving forward and constantly staying in tune with the scene. This has allowed him to withstand the test of time and be seen as a major player in the Australian Hip Hop Hall Of Fame.
