KEV HANNIBAL //

kev_hannibal_GS_960w

His name alone hits a striking cord. It’s strong, original and hard to forget. Much like his moniker, Kev Hannibal encompasses all of said qualities, adding a blistering heat to the Australian Hip Hop community. The fiercely proud New Yorker has called Sydney home over the last year, Giving himself the nick name Mr NYC TO SYD forging out a new life and music career in the Emerald City and making his mark in the world of Hip Hop.

His story is as powerful as the lyrics he spits, and boy does he spit. Watching Hannibal on stage, in the moment where all an artist needs is one mic, you can see, hear and feel the passion in his music, witnessing a performance that grips the audience and delivers the heat. Not bad for a humble young man from the hard knock streets of Southside Jamaica Queens, a suburb in New York synonymous for its pride, passion and servitude to the Hip Hop lifestyle, message and legacy. Growing up in a childhood plagued with family tragedy (losing his family home in a blazing fire) and being sent to live with his grandmother thereafter, Hannibal has lived enough to pen a bestselling memoir of his experiences to date. Instead he puts pen to rhyme book and lips to mic for his therapy, releasing the demons within to empower his fans and educate his peers.
