Once upon a time, the phrase “Irish Hip-Hop” would have been considered either an hilarious in-joke or a complex philosophical impossibility. Thankfully those days are long gone, for Ireland’s blossoming hip-hop scene seems to be going from strength to strength. Presently, there is no more poignant an example than Dublin rapper and all round good-guy Simi Crowns, who will be supporting the heavyweight champion of hip-hop Mos Def, at Dublin’s Vicar Street this coming Monday, November 24th. If there were a hook or a chain, this gig would be very much off of it, so, grab a ticket from over here.
