After landing an artist feature in ID Magazine with the release of her debut mixtape (“PURPULARITY”, 2017), things have been rapidly progressing for Sophiegrophy - the Australian based, Nigerian born and New Zealand raised artist currently making massive strides in the world of New Wave Hip Hop & underground Club Culture.
Ranked highly among the class of leading artists to emerge from Australia’s seminal WVS Hip Hop imprint, 2019 finds Sophiegrophy leveling up with appearances in Spotify’s 'Starting Point' series via Acclaim and Complex AU, NIKE’s A1 promotion (forthcoming), as well as holding solid positions in all the biggest national Hip Hop & Viral Chart playlists over a multitude of her own genre defining trap anthems (“Bag”, “Fa$t Life”) or features on a set of future-forward international club tracks (Walker & Royce “All For The Gram”, Taiki Nulight “Trip”). On the live front, Sophiegrophy demands audience attention on a host of performances including Australia’s inaugural Rolling Loud Festival, forthcoming national The Grass is Greener and Festival X tours, as well as a headline set at Spotify’s debut A1 Live showcase in November.
With a unique and charming aura, hard-working attitude and swag as fierce as they come, riding alongside her innate gift for genre-bending bars (Triple J Bars of Steel, YO! MTV Raps), Sophiegrophy has made as much a mark delivering hard-hitting cut-throat 16’s as melodic pop-inspired hooks. It’s her drive to experiment and push new ground that led her to collaborate with the next level studio creatives including Aus Hip Hop buzz-artist Kwame on “Rolls Royce, and return to the studio with Troye Sivan producer Jia Lih (previously collaborated with Sophiegrophy on 2018’s “Caution”) for her debut EP from which “American Honey” is the first single lifted.
