When Mo Muse was young, kids used to tell him “you’re not one of us.” Now the Somali refugee rapper is selling out gigs in Aotearoa and using music to tell his story. “Being accepted by hip-hop artists that you have always looked up to, that’s been the most rewarding thing. That dope feeling of belonging. Hip hop is part of my identity, but it is also how I find my identity too.” The Outliers is a series profiling impressive young people from minority backgrounds who are standing out from their peers. Made with support from NZ On Air.
