Tkay Maidza’s radio hits Brontosaurus and Handle My Ego took over dance-floors across Australia last year with their original take on dancehall infused hip-hop and her sassy and chatty rap style. Back with a new startling single U-huh she’s ready to take on the world with the Dew Process family right behind her.
From teaming up with Swick and Lewis Cancut for the clubby bass-rattler Arm Up to touring across the country with Nina Las Vegas with Wave Racer, Cosmo’s Midnight, Emoh Instead, and her producer Elk on U-Huh, Tkay Maidza has already been hailed as the hyper new face of hip-hop.
Her instantly infectious song writing, soulful voice, weightless rapping, and self-assured live shows at NLV tour and Bigsound, it’s hard to believe that Zimbabwe-born Tkay just turned eighteen. Already drawing comparisons with MIA and Azealia Banks, but with a style all her own, it’s no wonder she’s one of the most talked about new acts on the up coming Splendour In The Grass line up.
U-huh shows an incredibly fierce and fearless young woman, her lighting-fast flow and clever wordplay sparks with an insatiable hook that urges you to dance.
