Arno Faraji Takes Out Triple J’s Unearthed High For 2017

Written by Sam Murphy on August 17, 2017

17-year-old rapper and producer Arno Faraji has just taken out triple j‘s Unearthed High competition for 2017.

Breakfast hosts Ben and Liam visited him at his school Shenton College in Perth to award him with the prize in front of his class mates.

Faraji beat out four other finalists with his forward-thinking, futuristic hip-hop track ‘Destiny’s’, and has been praised by triple j for, “his whip smart raps and oozing charisma.”

The Unearthed High competition has been running for a decade now and Faraji is the first ever hip-hop act to take the crown. He’ll now be flown from Perth the triple j HQ in Sydney to record a song that will be played on the station.

Judging by the trajectory of previous Unearthed High winners Asta, Gretta Ray and Japanese Wallpaper, Faraji has big things coming his way.

Check out his A+ tune ‘Destiny’s’ below.
