Wellington hip-hop sensation Name UL drops his debut album 'Choices(s)'

Wellington hip-hop sensation Name UL has released his debut album Choice(s).
 
The 20-year-old rapper, whose real name is Emanuel John Psathas, has spent years honing his unique style, which shines through on this accomplished 12-track labour of love, capturing a snapshot of youth and life in New Zealand's capital.
 
To celebrate the release, Name UL will perform a special one-off show, featuring members of Drax Project, at San Fran in Wellington, on Friday, September 2nd.

Name UL was performing in bars and clubs long before he was legally able to drink in them and established his own label, K.W.O.E – or Kids With Open Ears - when he was just 15.
 
In 2015, he made his move from the underground hip-hop scene to the mainstream with the release of his powerful youth anthem ‘Only Sixteen’. He’s also opened for international acts such as Pharcyde, Action Bronson, Schoolboy Q, Vince Staples, Jurassic 5 and Earl Sweatshirt.
 
Choice(s) has so far spawned two great singles – ‘Nice Guys Finish Thirst’, which has caused quite a stir online. Note: make sure you watch to the very end!!!
