Could someone please enlighten me about the Irish rap scene? Who should I be listening to?

Goldie Lookin' Pot

nobody. never listen to any Irish music, ever.

except trad.

Ronan (Ronan), Thursday, 27 January 2005 15:21 (fifteen years ago) link

and Hystereo (ronan what is this 'mothership re-connection' credited to them in the Dance Charts??

Stevem On X (blueski), Thursday, 27 January 2005 15:27 (fifteen years ago) link

xpost to Ronan

Really? What about hip-hop or dance? Is there really none of that in Ireland? If not, why not? Is it really all trad music and U2? I thought that was just a caricature.

Stevie T., Thursday, 27 January 2005 15:27 (fifteen years ago) link

Hystereo. Maybe Decal.

I'm joking really, just lots of Irish music is rubbish. I wouldn't even investigate Irish hiphop myself I have to admit. There are plenty of good DJs here though.

wolfetones has a rap in one of their songs.

Stevie ten years ago you had Marxman whose singles included 'Sad Affair' (very nice soul sample - i imagine Kanye would approve, over some pretty poor lyrics about 'the troubles' - i imagine Kanye would approve) and 'All About Eve' which I imagine concerns 'the ladies' but is not particularly good either iirc.

god, all that House Of Pain shite from ten years ago is flooding back to me now. i even liked 'On Point'. curse you Yo! MTV Raps, curse you.

Spiral.

Messiah J and the Expert. They were Creative Control but I think the name was being used already. They've also lost the wee shaved headed boy who was the most gormless Flava Flav rip off ever. The first time I saw them he was wearing dungarees and with the glasses and the hair I thought he was a woman! Damn you media stereotypes!

The Rubberbandits are comedy rappers and producers from Limerick City who perform anonymously in costume. Having started off making prank phone calls, they ventured into hip hop in 2008.
