Genre: Rap & Hip-Hop
A Taranaki man whose father was murdered by Black Power gang members is using life's hardships as inspiration for his rap music.
Simeon Crean was still in the womb when his father, Chris Crean, was murdered in his home in 1996. He was shot in an organised hit to prevent him from giving evidence in court against the gang after he witnessed their attack on rival Mongrel Mob members. His music explores themes of escaping domestic violence, drugs and addiction through the sound of dark, underground rap.
