Ready or not
Space invaders crab back and forth like they did in the 1980s arcade game in rising Kiwi rap stars Church & AP’s music video for Ready or Not, a hit they’re sure to play at their show in Gisborne next week. The hunched green icons might be old school for a couple of young fullahs like the teen rappers but Ready or Not is dominating streaming platforms and radio, and is making its way from heavy rotate on hip-hop and RnB station Mai FM to the UK’s BBC Radio 1xtra.
Church & AP came together as a duo through taking part in local community hall music programs in Auckland’s Mount Roskill and Te Atatu. From there, the duo’s blend of southern/UK rap fused with grime has done all the talking.
