We've heard and seen local artists Sammy G and Mr Grin rap their hip hop hearts out at various events including live concerts featuring Sean Kingston or the dream stage show Tadra-Kahani.
And while they've paved the way for upcoming artists, one youngster bound to turn heads with his version of rap music is Samisoni Nabilivalu.
The 20-year old foundation student at the University of the South Pacific is taking the airwaves by storm with his single debut Gone Sisi.
Known by his stage name Red Child, Samisoni never thought he would venture into the world of local hip hop.
With Sammy G and Mr Grin to look up to, Samisoni's single is his observation and description of everyday life on the street.
The eldest of four, Samisoni was born and bred in Suva.
Originally from Naraviravi, Saivou in Ra, Samisoni grew up around books.
"My mother is a school teacher and she was posted a lot to teach at different schools. We had a lot of books around and because we didn't have television or radio at the different places we moved, we had to read a lot," he said.
"Apart from that, I read poetry and I began to write poetry. After I heard Sam (Sammy G) and Dave (Mr Grin), I wanted to see what poetry would sound like.
"Sam and Dave are inspiring but this song was an experiment although I did not expect any feedback.
"After I wrote the song, I went to Dave at FM96 for help with the song and it took off from there.
"My first live performance was at the Poetry Slam this year at USP with Sam and Dave who invited me to do a verse of his song Broken English."
His next performance was at the free Sean Kingston concert early this month.
With supportive parents and friends, Samisoni said people often used Gone Sisi as a derogatory term for a street kid up to no good.
His popularity is not just a result of his Gone Sisi hit but because of his 'simple' style most find appealing.
"I feel good about the positive response from the public but people have a misconception of a rapper," he said.
"Some people think you have to have attitude to be a rapper. For me, it's easy to put ideas into words and I don't have difficulty writing poetry.
"I did the song for fun and I wanted to experiment because realistically succeeding in the music industry in Fiji is quite difficult.
"But I would like to thank everyone who listens to local hip hop," he said.
And even though he's rubbed shoulders with Sean Kingston and Katchafire, Samisoni is like any other 20-year old still trying to figure out his next step in life.
He listens to all kinds of music from modern day hip hop to classic hits from the great Frank Sinatra, Tupac Shakur and the Temptations.
Dressed in casual three quarter Lee, double T-shirts and a red beanie, Samisoni had a simple advice for youths thinking of being a rapper.
"It doesn't hurt to try," he said.
