This month’s picks!…

Poetik – ‘Facts’

Auckland based Samoan MC Poetik has shared ‘Facts’, the lead single from his forthcoming album, Poetik Justice.
Recruiting SmokeyGotBeatz of Onehunga rap crew SWIDT for classic West Coast street style production complete with quintessential G-Funk synths and slapping hi-hats, ‘Facts’ is a stone-cold punch of direct and dominant gangster rap, while the Polynesian spitter consciously injects elements of his Samoan culture into the confronting record.
“He loves the West Coast sound as much as I do, so it was a match made in heaven,” Poetik says of working alongside Smokeygotbeatz, who in addition to working with local acts like MELODOWNZ, SWIDT, Diggy Dupe and may more, has also contributed production to LA legends including TDE’s Jay Rock and Reason.

With RAZÉs aim to keep her Hip-Hop routes we hear a sound mixed with Omega Levines Dance/Electronic voice that gives a mature element to this track.
