Since 2018, the 22-year-old MC has captured audiences across Australia with his effortless flows, precise delivery, and an uncanny knack for storytelling that connects deeply with his listeners. In his short time on the scene, with just a couple of tracks released and a handful of freestyle videos floating around, Kobie has quickly found a loyal following. His first official singles “Right Now” and “This Life” captured the attention of fans and industry heavyweights alike, acclaim which was soon amplified when he stepped into the booth for triple j’s Bars Of Steel, which has since clocked 870k views across platforms and saw a surge of support from the industry and fans alike. Last year's live performance alongside fellow label mates at the Vivid festival Bad Apples House Party also cemented his status as one of the most important voices in Australian hip-hop.
As an artist, Kobie Dee is deeply engaged with his community through live performance and youth mentoring programs, where his passion for his culture and people is inspiring new generations. Tune in for what's in store for this young, groundbreaking artist in 2020.
