Niche Talent Agency is excited to welcome YIBBY to the roster!
19-Year-old YIBBY is an Ethiopian Australian hip-hop artist out of Sydney. Adopted at the age of 2 and half YIBBY draws on his personal experiences as an African in Australia whilst also presenting a number of social commentaries, through a blend of witty and immediate lyricism and playful delivery.
His production largely handled by Sydney production duo Clockwork Oddessy sees raw instrumentation coupled with futuristic synths to create woozy and dreamy landscapes. While with influences such as Joey Bada$$, Isaiah Rashad, MF Doom, Earl Sweatshirt and Stevie Wonder, YIBBY’s style could be said to speak mostly to the old school, he still manages to capture a lot of what is interesting about contemporary hip hop.
