10-Year-Old Noongar Wongi Rapper Releases Debut Single

Perth-based ten-year-old Noongar Wongi rapper INKABEE, real name Ethan Eggington, has released his debut single, Beat The Odds, today.

The son of Joshua Eggington, known as Flewnt MC, wrote his first rap at age seven. The nickname INKABEE was given to Ethan by his grandfather at birth.

Beat The Odds was co-written by his father, who said, “INKABEE grew up around music. From an early age, I would rap in front of him, and he would pick it up so quickly, but in his own unique way. Our family legacy is rooted in activism, so we were overjoyed when he decided to use music to talk about issues he cares deeply about.”

The song provides a message of unity, which is what INKABEE was after: “Writing Beat The Odds felt so special like I’m writing something for myself but also for my mob.”

Beat The Odds was recorded at The Kwinana Beats studio, mixed by Abraham Kunin and Rush Wepiha, with mastering by Kunin. JP Beatz produced the beat, and Johnathon Karalis made the music video at 76M Film. 

Kwinana Beats is a youth music program facilitated by Wepiha. The City of Kwinana and the Youth Affairs Council WA (YACWA) support the program as it assists youths in their music journey and guides them towards achieving their goals in the industry. Kwinana Beats teaches kids how to produce, write rhymes, perform and build their unique brand. It also doubles as a music therapy space where young people are encouraged to reflect deeply and express their life journey through music.

With INKABEE already writing lines like, “It’s time for us to light it up, I can see the power in our people, there’s so much fight in us / Change’ll come with united love, it’s the only way we can fight the power that divided us,” he’s definitely going to be an MC to watch.
