Hey Simon, thanks for the kind mention! I must point out that although this is a huge achievement for me and my team it is not actually
the first ever NZ hip-hop album to chart in the US
That honour belongs to my friend Savage and his 2008 release 'Savage Island' which reached number 25 on the RIAA Rap Album Chart. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savage_Island_(album)
Savage also sold a certified 2 million copies in the US of his hit single "Swing".
These are outstanding (and widely overlooked) stats! Just wanted to shed a little light on that : )
