That moment when you're featured in Rolling Stone magazine... It's every musician's dream to appear in the coolest music mag on the planet and that's where Northern Sound System alumni Tkay Maidza is featured this month. Riding high on the release of her recently released debut album, simply titled Tkay, the Zimbabwe-born rapper had lots to say to journo Michael Dwyer about her roots in Adelaide, where she found her way to the Northern Sound System. The Northern Sound System's main man Nick O'Connor even had some words about Aussie music's rising star.

Read the full article and, for good measure, here's a review of Tkay's album. Oh and here's her collaboration with hip-hop artist Killer Mike.

And here's one of the early tracks referenced by Rolling Stone in its piece.

Tkay is currently on a national tour and appeared at Adelaide's HQ on Friday night. Other places to visit: Northern Sound System, NSS Facebook,
