SWIDT feature

The Spinoff presents the video premiere of SWIDT’s ‘Player Of The Day’, featuring UFC champion Dan “The Hang Man” Hooker and New Zealand Warrior Roger Tuivasa Sheck.

SWIDT MC Spycc says:

‘Player Of The Day’ is stadium music. It’s a song about winning, beating the odds, and just owning whatever field you’re in, whether its music, sports, fashion, or being the kings of your neighbourhood (in our case Stoneyhunga), be the best. And it’s also about hip hop and our culture of lyrical competition and using our own references and neighbourhoods to tell our story.

Anyone and everyone that grew up in New Zealand at some point wanted to be “player of the day”. Its unique phrase to Aotearoa and it’s also a message that can stand on the world stage at any stadium !! It’s a New Zealand hip-hop anthem.

SWIDT’s album Stoneyhunga is out July 28.
