New Zealand Hip Hop Stands Up

With the initial focus on the song "Stand Up", director Chris Graham gave the video for the single the energy of a rock video with invited music guests, DJs and even the general public invited to be in the video. The song debuted at #6 on the New Zealand top 40 singles and soon rose to number 1. Amazingly the single spent 12 (non-consecutive) weeks at number one. The song was occasionally taken out for a week but then was back at #1 the following week. Part of its remarkable staying power owed to the fact that when people became sick of airplay of "Stand Up" the other side of the single "Not Many" enabled the song to remain high on the New Zealand charts.


Scribe's debut album The Crusader was released in New Zealand in October 2003 by Dirty Records with distribution through Festival Mushroom Records.

Notes

Originally the doubled sided single "Stand Up"/"Not Many" was released with both songs being popular enabling the single to remain on the top of the New Zealand singles charts for ten weeks and be the top "single" of the year. A few months later, after the initial single release, a new limited edition version was released containing a new version of "Not Many" called "Not Many - The Remix!" which also had the song "Stand Up". This second CD was also released in an unlimited version in Australia with the focus being on "Not Many - The Remix!" due to the chorus of "Stand Up" being about "NZ hip hop standing the fuck up."
