Kobie Dee is a 23-year-old Gomeroi artist from Maroubra in South Sydney, Bidjigal Land. With an innate gift for storytelling and connecting with young people, Kobie Dee is one of the exciting new voices in Australian hip hop.
As an artist, Kobie is deeply engaged in his community through performance and community work, and his passion for his culture and people is inspiring new generations.
Kobie Dee announces his debut EP, ‘Gratitude Over Pity’ arriving later this year via Bad Apples Music. Accompanying the announcement, Kobie shares his latest single and video, About A Girl, which will feature on the EP.
As one of Australia’s brightest up-and-coming hip-hop acts, Kobie Dee shares an unfiltered and unwaveringly sharp-witted track, diarising the dynamics of intimate relationships co-mingled with the devastating impacts of substance abuse and addiction. Produced by Papertoy and Magic Nic, a low-end looping hum interlaced with deep kicks and a hissing snare, provides the backdrop for Kobie to share his incredibly moving story, first penned four years ago, aged 19.
