About

"MC for me means My Cousin" says Wire MC when asked about his name. His real name is Will Jarrett.

Hip-hop is really a voice of the community, of the area. It helps you represent where you're from. It teaches you self-knowledge and self-awareness. — Wire MC

I'm Abo-digital because I'm a 21st century Aboriginal, I'm down with laptops and mobile phones and home entertainment. But digital also means your hands and your ?ngers. I'm still putting my ?ngers in the dirt; I'm still using my hands to create things. So that's the ambiguity. — Wire MC about his album AboDigital

But I'm not Aboriginal. I'm Abodigital. At the beginning of time, our ancestors had a Dreaming, which all our people today are connected to. I'm connected too, but mine is a digital Dreaming. — Wire MC
