Started in Year
“The best Australian Hip-Hop song to drop in 2017 came via Melbourne rapper DEX, and his smooth, sultry single 4AM, featuring Allday.
The love-struck single connects two of the countries most sonically dynamic rappers over a drowsy, luscious Dom Cork x Stuart B produced beat, as DEX’s crooning delivery climbs towards the catchy, sing-along hook. The release of 4AM marked a distinct switch in styles for the burn city teen, as he swapped out hard, commanding bars for a softer, more permissive sound, assisted by some sweetly and subtly engineered auto-tune.
The moody hit is DEX’s most successful track to date, gaining well over half a million streams online alongside radio-play on some of the countries biggest commercial radio stations, and now, it tops our list as the BEST Hip-Hop song to come out of Australia in 2017.
4AM will get in your feels, but more-so, stuck in your head.”
