Great news, in that some of those excellent clips of Dublin rappers on YouTube are destined for the box, with RTE 2 showing ‘Reality Bites- Ireland’s Rappers’ next Monday at 9.30pm. The documentary is narrated by Damien Dempsey.
Below are a few of my favourite clips which have made it to YouTube.
Firstly, Costelo and Lethal Dialect from Street Literature filmed at the canal:
MissElayneous out in Finglas is a great clip too, opening with her explaining hip hop to a local.
South of the Liffey, local lad Nugget is excellent, even sticking a reference to ‘The Fureys’ into his Ballyfermot rap.
