Kerser King Tour

Live at The Hi-Fi in Brisbane.



Love him or hate him, there is no denying, Kerser knows how to pull a crowd. With little to no air play, the unlikely star has gathered an insanely loyal fan base which is proven by his recently sold out shows around the country. The Brisbane leg of the King Tour, hosted by The Hi-Fi, was no exception. Photos of fans lined up outside the venue, hoping to nab the best vantage point of his performance later that night, emerged on social media early on Saturday. That’s enough to make some of Australia’s most popular artists green with envy.

So what is it about this self proclaimed King that makes him so popular? When talking to Kerser fans there is a common theme; people relate to his life and lyrics, and are inspired by his rise to fame; from the hard streets of South West Sydney, to becoming one of Australia’s most talked about hip hop artists.

But it has been a long journey for the Cambelltown local, his rise to the top didn't happen overnight. After receiving the cold shoulder from numerous record companies, who weren't at all impressed by his raw, brutally honest and sometimes offensive content, he has relied purely on YouTube and social media to promote himself, meaning Kerser has had to work harder than most to gain the dedicated following he has today. And it seems his hard work has paid off! The Hi-Fi Bar in Brisbane’s West End was packed to the rafters with girls all “lassed up”, giddy and squealing with excitement, and even the lads were starstruck, many unashamedly and enthusiastically chanting, “ABK225”! From the moment the self made King took his throne on the stage, his audience was hypnotised by his cocky and arrogant, yet somehow loveable attitude.

With his never ending track list, deciding which songs to perform must be one hell of a task, but the audience seemed genuinely over the moon with his each and every song choice. As the intro started for 'It’s Nothing', a track from his latest album, King, the crowd were urged to hold up their lighters or brightly lit phones. The Hi-Fi Bar twinkled, as hundreds of arms swayed in the air for the duration of the song.

Fans who were disappointed by the absence of Kersers' brother and fellow hip hop artist, Rates, on the S.C.O.T. Tour last year, were stoked to see Rates take the stage alongside the pair’s long time friend, Jay UF, on Saturday night. It’s easy to tell that this trio go way back. And by the way the own the stage, anyone would think these lads have been practising for this moment their entire lives. Maybe they have.

Kerser is often heard speaking of his goal to pull off ten albums in ten years, something another Australian musician is yet to do. With a fourth album in four years under his belt, that target is looking more and more attainable by the day.
