Street Literature – Product Of The Environment

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
