Yea... but you would!
For some reason the general Irish populace is far quicker to instantly mock something Irish than dig a little deeper and support it. The population at large loves a winner, but you need to start winning for them to love you. See every sports trend in this country ever, especially the sudden upsurge in people who loved cricket a while back.
It's the same musically, unless it has a guitar in it and is vaguely like U2 Irish people have no time for it.
Melodica Deathship ftw.
In a nutshell
Only cringy when they try and disguise their accent. This is a quality tune.
The rubber bandits started out very hip-hop before becoming more mainstream (A marketing decision I'm sure but we all have to make a living).
As was said, it's a new genre in Ireland, give them a few years to develop. Groups like 'The Streets' made excellent rap music (if you can avoid being a pedant about sub-genres) that was relevant to English culture.
I'm very excited to see what Ireland can produce once the culture begins to develop its own identity a little further away from its American counterpart.
Irish rap has improved immensely over the last couple of years
Really like this guy's music
We should stick to the Irish dancing and sean nos singing.
Messiah J are brilliant, I wandered into their set at Indiependence a couple of years ago, it's not normally the kind of stuff that I'd listen to, but I was blown away! I'd love to see them again.
Did anyone else misread the thread title as "Irelands rashers" and get hungry?
Let them have at it and best of luck to them.
Like everything, there'll be a few jokers amongst the people who are serious about their music and sadly they'll represent the entire population of Irish rappers in people's (blinkered) view.
Only a matter of time before we have an internationally recognised commercially successful hiphop artist from Ireland
I don't think he's fly enough!
