Nowra’s Nooky is never one to pull his punches, constantly impressing us with his gunfire bars, quick wit and sharp tongue. A fierce advocate for championing black excellence, Nooky has positioned his music and voice at the forefront of conversations around changing the date and educating others on the Nation’s true history. Now, just in time for NAIDOC week, the Yuin rapper drops a brand new heater called ‘Always Was Always Will Be’ which features signature delivery and comes courtesy of Briggs’ Bad Apples label.
Chatting to Nooky on the new track, he told us: “‘Always Was Always Will Be’ is one of the first things I learned growing up! It gives a sense of strength and pride when stated, it’s something you can say with your chest and back wholeheartedly because this land that we all stand on is and always will be Aboriginal land and that shits undeniable. It’s a reflection of the sense of pride and strength you get growing up with ya mob, It’s also a nod to this year’s NAIDOC theme the track features our slang and is unapologetically black, it was produced by up and coming producer Mansus with a sprinkle of the sauce from iamsolo. This shit right here is the new NAIDOC anthem fuck it new Australian anthem. This is the kick-off to Nooky’s new season, ‘Always Was Always Will Be’ encapsulates Nooky’s mantra of live and die by the spear.”
