SimmerDown Productions with ZULU64 Aotearoa present the long awaited New Zealand debut of Bronx native AG.
The Frontman of Showbiz And AG and a foundation member of the Hip Hop super crew D.I.T.C., will be supported by one of the world’s premier turntablist DJ Total Eclipse of the almighty X-ECUTIONERS. The show is destined to set the stage on fire with straight up Boom-Bap Hip Hop!
Hailing from The Bronx, the birthplace of Hip Hop, AG (aka Andre The Giant) is one of the true legends of golden era Hip Hop. First coming to prominence as part of Showbiz and A.G. who released their debut EP “Soul Clap” in 1992. That same year saw the release of Showbiz And AG’s first full length album “Runaway Slave”. Shortly after this a collective of like-minded individuals known as Diggin’ In The Crates (D.I.T.C.) was formed, consisting of Showbiz & A.G., Diamond D, Lord Finesse, Fat Joe, O.C., Buckwild, and Big L. and one of the best producers in Hip Hop DJ Premier. They ruled the 90s with solo releases from all individuals and delivered a group album in 2000.
Along with more classic Lp’s being released “Goodfellas” in 1995 and “Full Scale” in 1998 plus more recently working along side producers Madlib and J Dilla. Expect a epic show with all the hits from Soul Clap, Fat Pockets, Next Level…. The list goes on… Truly a Hip Hop heavy weight and one not to be missed.
