Manu Crook$ clever wordplay and no-frills attitude put him in a class by himself as the premiere Australian hip-hop artist. Authenticity, along with a well-crafted sound separates him from his Sydney brethren. The painstaking detail applied to the music has lead to a co-sign from Zane Lowe.
In the video for “Assumptions,” Manu brings slices of his home to life with classic cars and glimpses of buildings, including the closing scene which takes place in front of a neon-lighted bowling lane. In its own way, the “Assumptions” music video lives up to the track’s title, as we are able to see beyond the stereotypes of the land down under; life in Sydney looks like life in any other small American city.
