HVNCOQ represents something incredibly special in the Australian hip-hop scene, and that is evolution. He's one of the leaders of a cultural shift that has seen the closed boundaries of Australian hip-hop expand into international territories, and provide an opportunity for young talent to find their voices.

His songs like "Blackout" represent the conscious, critical thinking of Australia's multicultural youth, and set the standard for making not only the music scene but the country itself accepting, inclusive and undeniably greater. In collaboration with Timberland, we got the opportunity to sit down with HVNCOQ and get to know the calm before the storm.
