VIDEO: Tui-nominated hip hop artist Kings at his marae and studio

From RNZ Music, 10:00 am on 16 November 2017

Music 101's Alex Behan visits Kingsdon Chapple-Wilson, aka Kings, at his marae – Northcote's Awataha, where he records and produces all his music.

The marae was built by his grandfather, and Kings has been making music there for seven years – ever since his dad, who runs the marae, offered him a 'little room'.

Kings is nominated for three NZ Music Awards: Best Solo Artist, Best Hip Hop Artist and People's Choice.
