Hometown: Woolyungah/Wollongong

The 411BOY $COUT GATSBY is a rising Aussie hip hop star with the potential to be the country’s next big export. At just 22 years old, the Woolyungah/Wollongong-based artist kicked off his music career in the wake of a break-up at age 16. Since then, the Kamilaroi rapper has reached over a million streams on Spotify, entered rotation on triple j (thanks to a YNG MARTYR collab), and now he’s signed to Australia’s iconic Mushroom Group and 100s + 1000s.

Armed with a sound reminiscent of contemporary hip hop and pop trendsetters Post Malone and The Kid LAROI, BOY $COUT GATSBY looks to continue his run of increasingly-popular singles with his latest release, ‘Wish You Well’. Working with producer Enschway, the track is a playful commentary on the power of young love.

Review: Though it’s often easy to dismiss artists who seem – intentionally or not – to follow in the footsteps of those leading the charge in their chosen genre, BOY $COUT GATSBY is a refreshing entry into the modern hip hop field. He demonstrates a genuine emotional approach to his work and boasts a syrupy smooth delivery.

Singles like ‘Wish You Well’ have the crossover appeal that Aussie artists have long searched for. As BOY $COUT GATSBY continues to rise, it won’t be a surprise if he goes on to become one of the country’s next big exports.
