Sid Diamond

bio // 

Previously known by his former stage name Young Sid and one third of iconic Hip-hop trio Smashproof – Sid Diamond is a New Zealand rapper and songwriter. Sid Diamond is one of the biggest urban acts New Zealand has ever produced. His solo debut, The Truth, was released on Move The Crowd in 2007 to critical acclaim.

His sophomore album ‘What Doesn’t Kill Me…’ was released in 2010 and charted for 8 consecutive weeks. It also won him his second Urban Album of the Year at the Māori Music Awards, along with Māori Male Solo Artist of the Year.

An elevated sense of maturity led to an evolution of Young Sid dropping the Young moniker and performing under his own birth name – Sid Diamond.
