Traveling To The Top

Posted in News with tags , , , , on September 27, 2010 by craicmusic

Maverick Sabre is set to release his latest mixtape “Traveling Man” in the close future. The original date of 13th Sept was pushed back to 20th Sept and never materialized. The project has been put on hold temporarily while he promotes his latest single with Footsie “Inside”.
Maverick Sabre has a rapidly expanding fan base due to his steady flow of television, festival and guest track appearances. This is a highly anticipated CD for a number of good reasons. Although with relatively little info on this project and Mav’s guitar playing/singing of late, expectations might be skewed in different musical directions. That said, his music still maintains a unique quality and going by his latest song featuring Footsie, he’s going to have bangers whether he sings or raps.

Craic Music will keep you up to date with all the latest developments on Mav’s “Traveling Man” and much more.

Notoriously Big

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , on September 24, 2010 by craicmusic

Waterford’s infamously disastrous Don’t Flop flopper, MC Dubh, returns to the spotlight once more with an awe rendering video. Surprise surprise it is another diss track to add to the collection of ever growing insults Dubh throws at various Irish rappers. This time Nugget is the target of abuse for his apparent diss in the recent DFI Battle Blog video.
The reason being, Dubh was the rapper Nugget referred to as the worst battler in DFI due to his absymal performance against Redzer earlier this year. Check here! That was enough to provoke Dubh into another flurry of fat jokes and incomprehensible rhymes.

“Nugget Your A Git” is unlikely to be remembered fondly and digs the hole deeper for Dubh. Nonetheless it’s still a very humourous video and the lyrics are bound to baffle you.  What’s better is the fact that Dubh feels it’s necessary to photoshop himself into topless male photos, maybe it’s to trick us from thinking he’s a git and a fat mutha…….

If you are in anyway mildly amused and want to know more about MC Dubh – Myspace & YouTube go!

Jun Tzu – Belfast Baby Mixtape (Free DL)

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Downloads with tags , , , , , , , , on September 22, 2010 by craicmusic

Belfast Baby is the hard hitting mixtape from Belfast born emcee Jun Tzu. The 20 track mixtape was released for free & independently earlier in May 2010. Jun currently resides in Manchester but still keeps his lyrics rooted in Irish culture and history.
Download Jun Tzu – Belfast Baby

Belfast Baby
is a unique and refreshing listen. It takes an insightful look into the northern lifestyle capturing the real essence and spirit of the Belfast people. Standout tracks include a new Specials ‘Message to you Rudy’ instrumental remix of ‘Wee Jonny‘, ‘The Bridge‘, ‘Toppa Da Morning‘, a feature from Manchester’s Chronicle and the joyously traditional ‘Folkmusic The Evil Foreman’.  That said, the whole mixtape is a solid package and each track compliments the one before it. Get it now!

Street Literature – Product Of The Environment

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Downloads, Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , , on September 20, 2010 by craicmusic

For those that don’t know, Street Literature are a Hip-Hop collective from Dublin. The group consists of G.I., Costello, & former Urban Intelligence members Lunitic & 4Real. They originally started as a side project put together by Workin’ Class Records with plans for an album. Unfortunately in the summer of ’09 MC Lunitic sadly passed away and indefinitely shelved the project.

Now thankfully producer Dean Scurry, director/editor Marion Mc Manus and the Ballymun Communications have decided to give ‘Product Of The Environment’ a visual makeover. They’ve kept things simple and true to the songs nature, the video remains a raw reflection of inner city Dublin.

The video is dedicated to the memory of Lunitic and starts with a chilling verse displaying his poignantly dark optimism. Costello and G.I. both are equally talented at breathing authentic Dublin life onto the beat and 4Real has me questioning why there isn’t more solo material out there to hear?

Greazy Dublin hip hop no doubt, if you’d like to hear more from Street Literature they have 3 free downloads on their Soundcloud Page

Street Literature – Music & Crime

Street Literature – Give Me A Reason

Street Literature – We Don’t Need You Anymore

Russell Grant’s Favourite Rappers

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , , , on September 7, 2010 by craicmusic

Dead Set Gemini have just released a video apparently shot during the Edinburgh Festival for their latest track ‘What’s Your Star Sign?’ produced by Show N Prove
Who knew asking girls their star signs would get them revealing themselves? Big Up to DSG!

The beat is by Show N Prove and has the typically high standard we are quickly coming to expect from them. Jee4ce and Deezy trade autotuned verses about women with relaxed and confident flows. It is exceedingly hard for Irish artists to pull off the autone style, so hats off to Jee4ce on this one as he shows how it can be done. Setting standards for Irish/Scottish hip hop that can be played in clubs/bars with few artists successfully doing that in the respective scenes.

If you haven’t been following the Dead Set Gemini YouTube you may have missed some of these recent-ish vids:

Plus grab “Do You Know Why I’m Here?” by Dead Set Gemini feat Super Novar totally free – Get it at their Dead Set Gemini Bandcamp page

Deezy’s EP “The Long Weekend” can be downloaded for free off his website – Check

The output from Dead Set Gemini in recent months has been exciting to say the least. Music For Spaceships is their debut release and is on the way soon.
