BIO Kia Ora my name’s Rhys Johns (Emcee Rhysistance) and I’m a 17 year old hip hop artist from Devonport, New Zealand. Give my music a listen if you are sick of hearing auntotunes and skkkkrrrrttttss! to the fans! Links below-(Also on a lot of other platforms like apple music and stuff search Emcee Rhysistance).
Top 5 Influences? My top 5 influences are hard to pin down as I listen to and have love for a lot of different artists and there’s hundreds more from the golden age (90’s) who could go in here too. Really its the entire culture of old school hip hop that influenced me rather than a select set of people.1. Homebrew 2. Nas 3. Eminem 4. Tupac 5. Wu Tang
What got you into music? I just got into recording music a couple of months ago but what helped me get into it would have to be freestyling with the homies. We’d have a skate at the Devo skatepark and be freeing all the time or driving round in my shit box of a Rav 4 bumping beats. Good Times, shoutout to the Rav4 Fleet. The one thing I would tell my fans is to do something in life that actually makes you happy and that way you will always be successful.
Biggest Goals My biggest goals for the rest of 2017 is to get through school while steady dropping at least weekly tracks need to finish school so I can study commercial music next year. Also to get onto a record label asap, would be dope need me a studio but keep your eyes peeled in the next few years for Emcee Records, me and Gracian Kerns sussery. Much love hip hop heads, new zealanders and anyone lucky enough to consider themselves a fan. Know there will always be a place for yall in my mansion.
New Project My new projects will be dropping weekly with a new album by the end of the year for sure! Rav 4 rapmobile freestyle album will be fire
