Premiere: Khi'leb sets himself up as one to watch with the clip for Anthem

The up-and-coming Brisbane rapper's latest track/video, which features Kiing Twiist, is a testament of his high-energy sound.

The Australian hip-hop scene is blossoming at the moment, with waves and waves of exciting, up-and-coming local rappers joining the party seemingly every single week. As a result, the scene is becoming more diverse than ever in both sound, style and looks, every name bringing something fresh, new and exciting to the culture with every release they share. No different is Brisbane rapper Khi'leb, who after debuting with his first single 2020 last year, has seemingly gone from strength to strength, one-upping his initial release with a charging second single, Anthem, which arrived earlier this year featuring Kiing Twiist. It's a single that takes mannerisms from the dominative US hip-hop market and twists it into a uniquely Australian favour, offering something refreshing as it bounces around with its thick bass production and Khi'leb's quick-paced flow. "Anthem is about becoming the person you've always wanted to be," Khi’leb says on the single. "I talk about the sacrifices I made to better my craft, and how I won’t rest, physically or mentally, until I reach the goal I set for myself. I cannot get better if I’m sleeping, so I wake up."

Today, we premiere the single's official video clip, which pairs the single's high-octane, high-energy feel with matching visuals self-produced by the Brisbane rapper, further solidifying his strengths as a versatile name in a crowded and quickly-growing space. He just wrapped up a slot at the Mountain Goat Valley Crawl, but with plenty more shows (and more material) to come, it's a good time to have Khi'leb on your radar. Check out the video below:
