Biography

Kerser was born in the vicinity of Campbelltown, New South Wales. He started his rap career at an early age while living in Campbelltown, rapping with his older brother Rates at age 11 and recording by 18. One of his major influences is Tupac.[1]

Kerser is a well-known battle rapper in Australia, appearing on circuits such as Got Beef, Grind Time Now Australia and Real Talk Battle League. He was undefeated from his second battle in 2010 to his most recent battle in January 2012 against Illmaculate, excluding a well-publicised battle against 360 in December 2011,[4] where no official winner was announced. His long-running rivalry with 360[1] heated up again in August 2013 when 360 released a diss track called "30 Minutes Tops".

Kerser released his first mixtape Straight Out Tha Gutter in 2009 with his second mixtape Down the Drain being released in 2010.

His first album The Nebulizer was released on 14 October 2011. The album was produced by Nebs, hence the name. According to an article in INpress, "Kerser is raw, aggressive and territorial," while the album is "A fervent mix of rave, rap, electro and r'n'b."[4] He gained fame from the track "Kerser is the sickest" that was also on the first album.

His second album No Rest for the Sickest was released on 2 November 2012. It reached No. 15 on the ARIA Albums Chart,[2] and No. 1 on the ARIA Urban Albums Chart.[5] He toured nationally to support the album.[3]

He was signed to management with Obese Records in 2013,[5] and in late 2015 moved to an independent manager. In March 2013 he released the single "We Here Now" with Rates, which led to a national tour.[5] Among his performances are the Breath of Life Festival in Tasmania alongside 360, Illy, Seth Sentry.[5]

In August 2013 Kerser released The No Rest for the Sickest National Tour on DVD. It debuted at No. 1 on the ARIA Music DVD Chart.[3]

His third album S.C.O.T. was released on 25 October 2013. The album features Nebs, Jay (Uf), and Jace Excel. It debuted at No. 1 on the ARIA Urban Albums Chart and No. 1 on the iTunes Chart, knocking off Linkin Park, David Dallas and Katy Perry in the charts. He toured Australia in February and March 2013 to support the album.[6]

Kerser's fourth album King, produced by Nebs, was released on 14 November 2014.

His fifth album titled Next Step was released on 13 November 2015 and produced by Sinima Beats. It was Kerser's first album to be released under his label ABK Records and was distributed by Warner Music Australia.
