The​ ​small​ ​town​ ​of​ ​Cambridge,​ ​New​ ​Zealand​ ​is​ ​an​ ​unlikely​ ​place​ ​to​ ​call​ ​home​ ​for​ ​a​ ​revolutionary​ ​rapper,​ ​but​ ​the​ ​story​ ​and​ ​values​ ​of Diaz​ ​Grimm​ ​are​ ​unusual​ ​in​ ​the​ ​most​ ​honest​ ​way.

Beginning as a DJ in the local Hamilton scene, Diaz combines energetic DJ sets with his own original music to create a boombastic one man stage show.

In​ ​2015,​ ​Diaz​ ​Grimm​ ​released​ ​his​ ​debut​ ​album​ ​’Osiris’,​ ​a​ ​soundtrack​ ​to​ ​the​ ​end​ ​of​ ​the​ ​world.​ ​A​ ​post-apocalyptic​ ​sonic​ ​journey​ ​that resonated​ ​with​ ​audiences​ ​and​ ​critics​ ​alike,​ ​the​ ​success​ ​of​ ​Osiris​ ​saw​ ​Diaz​ ​nominated​ ​for​ ​Best​ ​Urban/Hip-Hop​ ​Album​ ​at​ ​the​ ​New Zealand​ ​Music​ ​Awards​ ​that​ ​year.​ ​
The​ ​album​ ​topped​ ​the​ ​NZ​ ​iTunes​ ​hiphop​ ​charts,​ ​reached​ ​the​ ​official​ ​NZ​ ​Top​ ​20​ ​album​ ​charts​ ​and became​ ​the​ ​most​ ​upvoted​ ​self-posted​ ​album​ ​in​ ​the​ ​history​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Reddit/hiphopheads​ ​forum.​ ​

Following​ ​the​ ​success​ ​of​ ​the​ ​album Diaz​ ​was​ ​invited​ ​to​ ​go​ ​on​ ​a​ ​ten​ ​show​ ​nationwide​ ​tour​ ​with​ ​local​ ​superstars​ ​Six60​ ​and​ ​then​ ​in​ ​2016​ ​became​ ​the​ ​first​ ​self-managed, unsigned​ ​artist​ ​from​ ​New​ ​Zealand​ ​to​ ​ever​ ​be​ ​invited​ ​to​ ​play​ ​SXSW.

Diaz​​ ​made​ ​it​ ​to​ ​Austin,​ ​Texas​ ​for​ ​SXSW2016​ ​where​ ​he​ ​began​ ​a​ ​three month​ ​journey​ ​alone​ ​around​ ​America​ ​hoping​ ​to​ ​build​ ​his​ ​knowledge​ ​and​ ​network​ ​in​ ​the​ ​music​ ​industry.​ ​During​ ​the​ ​trip,​ ​Grimm​ ​met the​ ​likes​ ​of​ ​Chance​ ​The​ ​Rapper,​ ​A$AP​ ​Rocky,​ ​Alan​ ​Kingdom​ ​and​ ​was​ ​invited​ ​to​ ​meet​ ​with​ ​major​ ​hiphop​ ​blog,​ ​HotNewHipHop.
