Brisbane Times – Down to Urthboy
Renowned Australian rapper Urthboy, who played to a packed crowd at Woodford on Wednesday, says Australia’s stereotypical identity is a poor reflection on modern Australia.
“There’s a lot of people that think modern Australia is the definition that Pauline Hanson has constructed,” he said.
“Pauline Hanson has far less in common with the problems facing ordinary Australia than most people, like artists, that are trying to question what’s going on.”
He also attributes part of his success in the hip-hop industry to societal privilege.
“In as far as that I’m a white male, it has given me opportunities that would not be afforded to other people,” he said.
