Nine ARIAs. Multi-platinum sales. Half a billion global streams. Songs embedded in the national consciousness. The legacy of the Hilltop Hoods is already undeniable.
They helped create hip hop as a local genre in Australia. The group was founded by Suffa and Pressure, who were joined by DJ Debris after fellow founder, DJ Next, left in 1999. Since then they have made a household name for themselves with ‘1955’ and ‘Cosby Sweater’ reaching the top five in the ARIA charts and have both reached six-times platinum status.
The smash ‘I Love It’ went five-times platinum. They opened the door for countless acts from all over Australia through their mentoring, touring and their annual Initiative for emerging acts.
Their 2019 release ‘The Great Expanse’, sees the band showing no signs of slowing down.
