Stacked with Future Legends of the Aussie Rap scene, The Colosseum is set to be the biggest hip-hop event of the year.
Headlined by Newcastle's highly acclaimed Mason Dane and co-headlined by Brisbane Icon Baby Prince, with support from Sydney's own heavy hitters Tommy Gunn, Izel Jamez and DJ Nemz, this event plays host to one of the biggest hip-hop line-ups in Australia.
Newcastle’s Mason Dane has become a force to be reckoned within the Australian hip-hop scene and within a couple short years has done what many artists can only dream of. From launching his self biographical EP Chasing Home on a moving Sydney train carriage to tearing up Atlanta and LA with T-Pain, the 23-year-old has shown that not only is his stage presence and music are something special, but his personality too.
From shoeys at T-Pain's house to sold out shows opening for Yung Gravy, Horrorshow & Triple One as well as playing his hand of festivals and headline shows, Mason's energy when he graces the stage is undeniable. His Newcastle Chasing Home show sold out in less than 30 minutes, he brings the fire to every stage he sets foot on.
As accomplished writer and producer for Australian staples like Manu Crooks, Hooligan Hefs, Day1, and international acts like Lil Keed, Mason is proof that there’s no limitations on what you can do if you work hard and stay humble.
Baby Prince is a recording artist based in Brisbane, Australia. Born in Harare, Zimbabwe Baby Prince’s style is unique, raw and versatile. Growing up Prince was heavily influenced by artists such as Lil Wayne, T-Pain, Young thug and the late Michael Jackson. 2022 saw one of his biggest releases yet, his single Zimbabwe gained some serious traction and received praise from American artist Blxst. He has most recently released his highly acclaimed Purple Rag Prince EP which combines influences of rap, RnB and Afrobeats.
Mason and Baby Prince are joined by Sydney's own fast rising star Tommy Gunn, who has found great success since the release of his 2022 album Bet On Me and singles such as Trust Issues and Dancing in the Rain. Bringing a melodic trap style to the Australian hip hop scene, similar to the likes of Lil Durk, Tommy Gunn has set himself apart as he looks to become one of Australia's biggest rap stars.
