about Me

wayne alexander // aka “disen”

Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”



Wayne Alexander, aka Disen, is an emerging hip hop artist whose life is a story of second chances.

Growing up in a town called Toongabbie, in Sydney’s west, Wayne ran with a lot of good mates who were headed down the wrong path – and started dabbling with alcohol and drugs at a young age. This led to a massive drug addiction that took him into all the wrong places.

Getting kicked out of school in year 8, Wayne started doing crime to feed his drug habit, which resulted in a lot of time behind bars. In and out of juvenile detention as a teen, he then “graduated” at age 18 to prison, doing time on many occasions between ‘99 and 2003.

It was in prison in 2002 when Wayne found faith, and began to change on the inside. After his release in 2003, he walked away from his old ways and started a brand new life.

He began studying, working, paying back major debts, and speaking at high schools to help kids avoid a life of drugs and crime. And with his uncle Ben ‘Nebs’ Hopkinson, who is now one of Australia’s best beats producers, he began making hip hop – the music he’d grown up with. Together he and Ben performed for kids at high schools and the local youth group – and for Wayne it was the start of a passion for music that never left him.

As the years progressed Wayne’s life did a complete 180 – working and studying hard, getting promotions, buying a car, a home, getting his license back, and travelling the world. The one place he can’t travel, though, is America – due to his criminal past – a reminder of the life he once lived.

Wayne’s first solo track, Life Is In Your Hands, tells a story of a life a bit like his own. The song follows his collaboration track, Climbing the Mountain by DYS-N-EAF.

Wayne hopes his music will help others on a similar road to the one he once walked.

“By making hip hop music and sharing my story, I want to bless others,” he said. “I want to encourage anyone that no matter how bad your past is, you can achieve many great things, once you start heading in the right direction.”

As an emerging artist he’s grateful for all that’s happened to get him to where he is today – even time behind bars: “Getting locked away gave me time to think about where my life was headed…I don’t think I would be here today, if I continued down that path of crime, drugs and prison.”
