MADCHILD & Kogz/Fortay

Canadian Hip-Hop Legend Madchild Announces 2024 Australian and New Zealand Tour

Acclaimed rapper Madchild, a recipient of the prestigious Juno Award, has announced his triumphant return to Australia and New Zealand for early 2024. The Canadian emcee will embark on his biggest tour of the nation’s capitals yet. Madchild is no stranger to Australian and New Zealand fans, as he has played to packed sold out tours as both a solo artist and with hip-hop trio Swollen Members, and he shot his iconic music video for The Jackal, which has now surpassed 20 million views, in Melbourne.

Madchild hails from the golden era of hip-hop when he grew up working at Extra Large in Haight-Ashbury, a clothing store owned by the Beastie Boys. From there he sharpened his pen and was inducted into the Rock Steady Crew alongside Dilated Peoples. It all attests to his powerful collaborations with industry heavyweights Jurassic 5, Talib Kweli, Nelly Furtardo and video director/comic book legend Todd McFarlane.

Madchild's trajectory in the hip-hop landscape over the past few years has been nothing short of remarkable. He joined forces with Tom MacDonald to birth the collaborative album Killing The Neighbours, birthing chart-toppers Bad News and Sober, both commanding a spot on YouTube's trending page. Following this triumph, Madchild proceeded to captivate audiences with Mobsters and Monsters, a collaborative masterpiece with the burgeoning San Diego emcee Obnoxious.

The album bore witness to Madchild's mastery of penmanship, paying homage to authentic hip-hop lyricism and accompanied by head-bobbing beats.

Earlier this year, Madchild collaborated with renowned multi-platinum producer and songwriter Michael Bradford on the track Ya Don't Stop, which was selected by ESPN as a song of the month. The track was heard as a musical backdrop during the NBA Finals to millions of viewers.

Madchild will be taking Australian artist ‘Kogz’ along for the entire tour after a stellar past few years on the local circuit proving himself one of the hottest prospects on stage and in the Australian music industry. Kogz is sure to expand his rapidly growing fanbase alongside a legend of the game and debuting live in New Zealand with another force in the Australian hip-hop scene Fortay at Large also excitedly joining the New Zealand dates for his first time also.
