Far from your average hip hop rap artist, GiantKIlla with a vivacious stage performance, dance moves to charm any eye and a savvy lyrical delivery, this young professional was born to entertain.

Biography

"I knew I wanted to be an entertainer from as far as I can remember. I sang, rapped and danced for anyone, at anytime, anywhere."

As a fan of artists such as Michael Jackson, Daft Punk and Naughty By Nature it's no wonder GiantKilla otherwise known as 'GK' encompasses an incredible whitty, vocal swag and smooth dance style.

GiantKilla comes from a musical family. "It all comes from impersonating Michael Jackson and 13 year old hip hopper's Kris Kross" he cheerfully explains. "I did up little shows in my house for my family & friends. My mum's quite fashionable, so she would buy my outfits, covering me from head to toe."

Secondary school proved instructive in as much as it gave GiantKilla an outlet to "meet other performing arts type of kids" introducing him to drama, where he secured main character roles in annual school productions. At the same time he had a 2 year stint in a hip hop dance group "Phusion" (winners of NZ's Flare national dance competition in 2006) which broadened his dancing experience.

After being spotted at a local youth development program, 12 year old GiantKilla and other youth from that program formed a hip hop group "Crossbreed". The youngsters were given an opportunity to travel to US in 2007 performing at various places (schools, halls, centres) in Los Angeles. "Although that crew didn't go further, I was all the more determined to succeed, even if it meant going solo."

Since then GiantKilla hasn't skipped a beat. From winning the 2012 Most Promising Artist at the NZ Pacific Music Awards, releasing his debut self-titled album later that same year which reached #16 in the NZ album charts to performing in Australia, Western Samoa and Rarotonga. GK is about to release his Sophomore album "GK23" this coming September 2014.  When asked about what the future holds for GiantKilla, he responds, "My aspiration is to reside in USA writing, performing & making music, this is what I plan to do at the end of 2014.  Music is my life, I can't breathe without it, so I can't see myself doing anything else but music.  If you want to be a rugby player you come to New Zealand, you get top, world-class, second to none rugby here.  But I want to be an entertainer so where do I need to go to be amongst the best? You know it, U.S.A.!"

Lyrics

2ND FLOOR

Written By: GIANTKILLA,PELE NILI

Verse:
It's like your curves and swerve hits the nerve
make me notice your smile a bit better
like my smile on cheddar
When it triples my benefits
It don't stop (never stop making money)
It don't quit (never quit)
When I see you working hard with three jobs
to pay college fees, and feed your mum
I like that, respect that, the fact you ain't sleazy (You ain't cheap baby)
for a male to think easy, you a self made woman, a dream
I wish I could be in that perfect scene, I think twice before i ask
Cause I know a girl like you wouldn't be down, with a fast dude
In a fast crew, It is what it is, let the truth be the truth
we too different in worlds of business, they say
that opposites attract, so I wait patiently
til it happens like that (For real)

Chorus:

My Name is Killa
I live on the 2nd Floor
I know you like it
when you see me stunning past your door
I know you like it
when you see me train in the corridoors
I know you like it
when we meet up at the corner store

Verse:

I noticed you found a friend (Damn)
my heart skipped, realising this is it, the end
but that look (snap)
like your heart shook (Yeah)
and your friend was better off dead than see that look.
But I feel you, he ain't the one (Follow your heart baby)
It's the one who's got your heart when the day is done
and as I lay there, I don't care, with all the drama's on my back
as long as you still care, the block is hot
the streets are alive, but your heart beat I feel
make me strive to survive, they say
opposites attract, so I wait patiently,
til it happens like that (For Real)

Chorus

Outro:

Your GiantKilla, you live on the 2nd floor (How do you know my name?)
I kinda like it, (Yeah I like it too, I really like it)
when I see you stunning past my door
I kinda like it, (I know you like it)
when I see you train in the corridoors (yeah)
I kinda like it, (How bout we go somewhere to eat?)
when we meet up at the corner store

Hey, Uh oh ooh oh.

Verse:

Take the time for a minute

Pause for a poem

I got alot of people
that could understand my view
on why I'm on this love tip
and girl I'm on a love trip
You got me thinking, not in a dirty sense
you ain't sleazy, and easy or on the fence
your defence, and everything about you I adore
alot has happened since you seen me on the 2nd floor.
Yeah, you working hard and it's a blessing to have you
care for me, when I know, you don't have to
but I'm a be the man who, stick to the plan to get that money right
and be your friend and your man, true?
Them other couples caught up, in drama's and nonesense
and now they feel stuck. I be the foundation that would hold you up
You and I can't deny, that we going to the top cause

Ch:
No doubt about it
My love for you is proud and
Ima be the one for you

I can give the world to you baby
All the time for you lady

Got me singing like what? Uh oh ooh oh
Tell you this is just how i feel

Verse:

I know it feels so right, cause it's backed by truth
We together, no lies could ever tear us apart, from the start
We straight clicked, you talked and I was listening.
Conversations grew til we knew, we weren't different.
No puppy loves, no movie drama queens
Yeah, friendship that turned out to be.
What it is, You and I handle the biz
It's not about my job, or my choice of career and
in it there no fear, cause I know you keep it real.
Clued up, young lady, kicking back and chill.
I will make sure that I provide for ya
a clean lifestyle, to walk by my side and uh
the race against time, the mountains we can climb
to tell the world I am yours, and you are mine
I back up what I speak, and what I talk ain't cheap
sown in my heart, so it's my love that you reap, what.

Bridge:

I know what I want,
and baby girl I know what you need
and thats for
Me and you (x2)
Chillax and unwind, baby be mine
If this is love, take a risk
you don't wanna look back, regret on what you missed
Me and you (x2)
Don't worry about it baby, cause this the real thing.

Chorus (x2)
