Savage is the first New Zealand hip hop artist in history to have a commercial single ("Swing") go platinum in the United States.
Savage started his career in 1997, joining with friends to form hip-hop crew, the Deceptikonz. In 1999 they were signed to label Dawn Raid Entertainment, released the album "Elimination" and participated in the Mareko hit single "Stop, Drop and Roll".
Savage released his debut solo single "Swing" and the album "Moonshine" in 2005, which reached number two in the New Zealand album chart and included a title track as a follow-up single. Moonshine, which features American R&B singer Akon, became an even bigger success than Swing at the time; spending seven weeks at number one on the New Zealand singles chart, and reaching the top ten in the Australian singles chart. The Moonshine single would eventually become certified twice platinum in New Zealand and gold in Australia.
Success in the USA followed when Swing appeared in the Hollywood movie "Knocked Up". Swing was released as a single for the United States in 2008, and remix versions were made with American rappers Pitbull and Soulja Boy Tell 'Em. Upon re-release, Swing reached number forty-five on the US Billboard Hot 100 and re-entered the New Zealand singles charts, peaking at number twenty-three. By the end of January 2009, the song had sold over 1,500,000 units in the United States alone; Swing was certified as a platinum single in the United States, and soon reached sales of over 2 million worldwide.
In February 2009, Savage released "Savage Island", the second studio album of his solo career. The release became his second consecutive top-ten entry on the New Zealand album chart debuting at number nine. The album included Moonshine from the previous album as well as a remix version of the New Zealand number-one hit Not Many. The release also featured two new singles"Wild Out (Chooo Hooo)" and "Hot Like Fire". These songs became New Zealand singles chart hits with the former becoming Savage's fourth top-ten peaking song in the national chart. In October 2009, Savage performed the Savage Island album track "I Love The Islands", to raise funds for the Samoan tsunami relief effort.
Savage is back with his third solo album Mayhem & Miracles, released on 29 June 2012. Recorded and Mixed in Hollywood, California, at platinum Hip Hop producer and MC DJ Quik's studio "The Vault", Savage spent time enlisting a group of the greatest Polynesian artists from around the world to help compliment the stories and themes of his captivating new album. Mayhem & Miracles was produced by Twice As Nice & F.B.I Productions (NY) and features guests RIA, Boo Yaa Tribe, Monsta G, Jah Free and reggae sensation SpawnBreezie.
