Tom Williams is making his mark on the Auck- land hip-hop scene. Tom, who performs under the name Sir T, has been building his rap career since he was 15. The 26-year-old Beach Haven man has signed with Move The Crowd Records, toured with Auckland acts such as Young Sid and collabor- ated with singers Vince Harder and Pieter T on his debut album called Walk With Me. And he has no plans to slow down. The former Hato Petera College student grew up inspired by local hip-hop group Assassinz and was fortunate to work with them on his first song. Ever since then I haven't looked back and just chased the dream.'' Beach Haven-Glen- field crew Indigenous Funk also gave Sir T the inspiration to pursue his dreams, especially after seeing them open for his favourite group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. I was just a little kid watching them open up for Bone Thugs and ever since then I've been wanting to do it,'' Wil- liams says. Sharing stories about reality and life are the focus of his writing. I'm better at express- ing through song rather than talking like this,'' he says. Travelling to New York to take in the rich hip-hop culture and maybe record a track are his goals for the next couple of years. Go to facebook.com/ Sir.T.MTC to follow Sir T.
