Hip hop still might be dominated by male collectives, but leave it to Eighteen-year-old Mallrat to drag in the cutting edge of the genre.
The self-styled “Hannah Montana of the rap game” will soon be heading to Mandurah, hitting Players Bar on July 14.
In a very quick space of time, Mallrat has exploded right across blogs and radio worldwide, thanks in large part to her completely self-assembled handling of hip hop.
Taking strong cues from stoner rock, punk, pop and everything in between, Mallrat has built a slinky, forthright style which has seen her collect more than 5 million hits on Spotify, as well as support from tastemakers Beats 1, KCRW, triple j, Noisey, Kitsune, the indomitable Perez Hilton and many more.
Since releasing her EP Uninvited last year, Mallrat has spent the intervening time catching up with the hype, touriing nationally and hitting up festivals as diverse as Falls Festival, Hyper Fest, St Kilda Festival, Come Together, Festival of the Sun, and The Plot.
Set to hit Mandurah at just about the perfect time, Mallrat is set to blow you away with her energetic and personal take on hip hop.
Doors open at 9pm, with house DJs after midnight and support coming from Sydney’s Willaris K.
