MTV Upload of the Week: Saint Lane
Inspired by Kanye West, Tame Impala and Donald Glover, Saint Lane is the 25-year-old NZ born rapper you need to make room for on your next playlist.
Having already toured with Baker Boy, Saint Lane is a promising new edition to the thriving Aussie hip-hop scene and our MTV Upload of the Week with his track 'Compliment My Shirt.'
"'Compliment My Shirt' came around the time I was at university and was really struggling for money. After handing out my resumè to every place I could and not getting any job offers. I ended up getting involved in some pretty heavy and dangerous situations, but through it all I still remained true to myself, a nice guy, a good guy. Even if I was buying drugs from a dealer in a pink floral shirt and a jumpsuit, " he told 23.
There's no denying Saint Lane is an artist to watch in 2019 and beyond.
