To launch his new album Train of Thought Birdz pulled together a line-up of indigenous hip-hop heavyweights including Tasman Keith and Bad Apples label mate Nooky. All three artists served up beat-heavy politically charged rap to an enthusiastic crowd.
Nooky, after decreeing the night "NAIDOC Week in September", decided to walk on water (the crowd) and called back the impressive Tasman Keith to join him for a track.
N.T.-raised rapper Birdz served up tracks from his stellar new album with the smooth delivery of a seasoned pro, with highlights including "Black Lives Matter". If there's any justice, it won't be long until Birdz is as well-known as Bad Apple boss Briggs.
