Sir T - Forgot Me Feat. Cavell
Sir T is one of the most exciting newcomers to New Zealand Hip Hop, signed to Move The Crowd Records, and mentored by NZ Hip Hop’s brightest star, Young Sid.
A Beach Haven/North Shore resident, Sir T ignites audiences with his range of skills, possesses a relentless work ethic and a blazing creative drive. Like his MTC label mates, Sir T brings real life stories to his music that gives it credibility and resonance with his audience.
Making his presence felt in the local hip-hop scene, Sir T learnt his trade with a neighborhood crew called the ‘Assassinz’. "I got hooked on what I was hearing around me. The boys used to just chill, drink and rap away to someone playing the guitar, but then I heard a track they recorded on to a CD and straight away thought to myself....that's me!"
Carrying his influences from the American hip-hop game, Sir. T got to work on making original tracks with his new found circle, working hard on his skills and improving each day. At 17 years old Sir T joined a crew called ‘Shore Syndicate’.
"I learnt a lot from my days with the Syndicate, but to be honest the music we were producing wasn't me - it was too commercial. The main thing I did take from the Syndicate was the experiences of performing live on a stage. Without those types of experiences I wouldn't be here, so I am grateful and thankful to have been a part of that little learning curve as well."
Sir T recently released a mixtape called “Get Ready” and this will be followed by his debut release "Walk With Me" through MTC - an album which will be Executively Produced by fellow MTC label mate and Smashproof member Young Sid. The album is due for digital release in late 2011.
