"This just jumps out the minute you hit play - solid!" - Nick Findlay, triple j.

[UPDATED SNAPSHOT BIO] In Arnhem Land they call Baker Boy the ‘fresh new prince’. Raised in the remote NT communities of Yurrwi and Maningrida, 21 year-old Danzal Baker, aka Baker Boy, raps in Yolngu Matha language representing his bloodlines. A strikingly talented artist on an undeniable rise, Baker Boy kick started 2018 with two of his songs – Marryuna and Cloud 9 – winning their place in triple j’s Hottest 100. He has supported the likes of 50 Cent and Dizzee Rascal, played prime festival slots at Splendour in the Grass, Laneway, Golden Plains and WOMADelaide, and recently sold out his first headline tour.
Born in Darwin and raised in the remote NT communities of Yurrwi [formerly known as Milingimbi and Maningrida] 21 year-old Danzal Baker aka Baker Boy is related to rising stars Gawurra and Yirrmal. He is the freshest new Yolngu hip-hop talent from the Top End. Young, strong and proud Baker Boy raps in Yolngu Matha language representing his Arnhem Land bloodlines. He knows his value, his worth and he raps so others get it.

What seems to be a whirlwind of success since the debut of Baker Boy, Cloud 9 has manifested into a full-blown Cyclone Baker. After infiltrating the triple j crew with an instant full rotation addition and prospering in their appraisals Baker Boy’s career has dropped into 6th gear with new single Marryuna set to be a Summer festival anthem. Baker Boy is known as a multi-talented, multi-lingual artist, working across rap, dance, acting and graffiti, and he hopes to inspire younger generations to embrace their culture and become leaders in their communities.

Baker Boy has the industry talking, and is destined to be one of this country's greatest hip hop stars. Watch this space and check his facebook &/or Instagram for more Festival gigs.
