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

Russell Grant’s Favourite Rappers

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 Deezyonline.com

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.
