The track points to Black Excellence and the opportunities for the rappers Peoples to achieve anything. They are the future.

'Testify' is a piece of Birdz's heart. It is deeply real and vulnerable, written and recorded with family. The lyrics are relatable for far too many families dealing with the effects of abuse, a suppression that Birdz wants to release for others.

Birdz - Hunger Voodoo     Hip Hop, Rap, Soul, Indigenous 18/11/2016
"If my life as a starving artist had a soundtrack it'd sound like this, playing on loop as I hunt down my next meal.” – Birdz
Hunger Voodoo is a tale of a broke man, a new father, a hungry artist. Offering his audience a new perspective from his socially conscious melodic rhymes, Birdz keeps it close to home with this honest portrayal of working for the man while striving to be a full time artist.

The Bad Apples Music signee is making a statement; the epidemic of race related oppression choking his people never ceases. A 14-year-old boy murdered in Kalgoorlie, children gassed in detention, a 22-year-old woman died in custody, 120 communities unapologetically closed – for what? There is no reasonable answer.

Birdz - Rise     Hip Hop, Soul 20/07/2016
"Rise" by NT rapper Birdz

Reflecting on intergenerational knowledge and perspective changes that happen along the way, “Rise” is about finding the strength to take flight no matter what life throws at you.
