PNC - SAM HANSEN

"Anything can inspire me, really. Other people's music, movies, books. I really just draw inspiration from things that happen in my life."

PNC - SAM HANSEN

Hip hop rapper Sam Hansen is better known by a stage name that shouts of love for his hometown: PNC – Palmerston North City.

 

PNC has been big fan of music for as long as he can remember and was drawn to hip hop in the 90's mainly, he says, because of the lyricism of great artists like Jay-Z, Outkast and 2pac. He began performing  along Auckland’s Breakin Wreckwordz and, by age 21, had worked with popular New Zealand artists Scribe, Frontline, Dawn Raid, Nesian Mystik and Che Fu.
