Ror Akot Interview

I sat down with Ror Akot, a young rapper and actor from Melbourne, who is originally from South Sudan, for i-D Magazine. 

 

Ror has inspired me a great deal ever since I first learned about him at Melbourne International Film Festival last year, when
a short documentary about him screened before Nas: Time Is Illmatic.

 

Ror came to Australia as a refugee in 2005 and has built an incredible life for himself by working with his community in Fitzroy and growing his talents in music, acting
and mentoring.

 

His endless creativity and determination
blows me away. If you feel like being inspired too, read the interview and take
a listen to his music.
