Australian hip hop music began in the late 1980s, primarily influenced by hip hop music and culture imported via radio and television from the United States of America. Since the late 1990s, a distinctive local style has developed. Australian hip hop is a part of the underground music scene with only a few successful commercial hits in the last decade. Albums and singles are released by mostly independent record labels, often owned and run by the artists themselves.
