ALAAK PAGER IS A 19 YEAR OLD AFRICAN-AUSTRALIAN HIP HOP ARTIST KNOWN AS ALAAK-NESS MON$TA OR SIMPLY ‘NESS’. BORN TO SOUTH SUDANESE PARENTS, THE SELF PROCLAIMED GOLDEN ONE GREW UP IN ADELAIDE then in  PERTH, AUSTRALIA SINCE ADOLESCENCE.

NESS WAS RECITING CLASSIC JAY Z ; NAS VERSES BY THE AGE OF 5 AND HAS SINCE BEEN STUDYING THE ART. AS HE GREW OLDER, MAKING MUSIC BECAME MORE THAN JUST A CREATIVE RELEASE FOR NESS. THE PLAYBACK WORDSMITH DROPPED A FEW SONGS BEFORE FINDING HIMSELF ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE LAW. HE EVENTUALLY CAME TO A REALISATION THAT HE’D RATHER BE WRITING BARS INSTEAD OF BEING LOCKED UP BEHIND THEM.

NESS’ ABILITIES ARE ENHANCED BY HIS INHERENT DELIVERY OF CONSISTENTLY RAW AND CLEVER RHYMES AND WORDPLAY. HIS REPERTOIRE OF ENTICING FLOWS, SURREAL BARS AND UNIQUE CADENCE MAKE HIM ONE OF THE MOST LETHAL EMCEES IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE.
