Tkay Maidza

This fleet-tongued Australian MC-slash-singer has garnered fans from all around the world since her 2013 breakthrough, including Charli XCX and Killer Mike, who matched mic skills with Maidza on the punchy track "Carry On." Her 2016 debut album, Tkay showcases her keen ear for hip-hop that displays a fluorescent-bright pop sensibility, with tracks like the fizzy "Simulation" and the pumping "Monochrome" standing out. After SXSW, she'll hit festivals Hangout and Boston Calling.
