Baker Boy Builds Cross-Cultural Bridges with ‘Gela’

On his debut album, Baker Boy doesn’t just arrive with a slew of stellar tracks, he arrives with the capacity to take over the hip-hop game.

On his debut album, Baker Boy, northeast Arnhem Land’s favourite son (and one-time Young Australian of the Year) is doing much more than just dishing up lyrical, club-ready slabs of up-tempo Aussie hip-hop: he’s building cross-cultural bridges and making it feel like a dance party. If a more inclusive, unified, and compassionate Australia has a soundtrack, this is it.

Baker Boy’s Gela is out now.
