Sam Hansen is a popular New Zealand rapper who is known by his stage name, PNC.
The name PNC is an acronym for Palmerston North City, the place where he was born. PNC first gained underground notoriety performing alongside Auckland's Breakin Wreckwordz. His unofficial single "Day in the Life" stayed at number one on the Bfm charts for three weeks. He followed that with appearances on P-Money's "321 Remix", "Get Back" and the NZ chart topping "Stop The Music" single from the Magic City album in 2004.
PNC later signed to P-Money's Dirty Records and released his début album Rookie Card in 2006. The first two singles, "Bomb!" and "Just Roll", were relatively successful songs in New Zealand. He followed with hit singles P-N-Whoa! and "Who Betta Than This" (which samples the song "3,2,1 Remix"). The album Rookie Card went on to win the best Urban/Hip-Hop album at the 2007 Vodafone Music Awards in New Zealand.
PNC's second album Bazooka Kid was released in June 2, 2009. - Wikipedia
