Hawkes Bay rapper Prof Tahi (Paora Hawea) has been writing raps since he was 12 years old. Using music as a tool for self-reflection, his discography follows his journey as a "half-cast" (Pakeha/Maori ) person growing up and living in Aotearoa. Music 101 producer Evie Orpe talked with him about toxic masculinity, his arrest, and his new venture incorporating te reo into his music.
