Dublin based rapper Bitter Rocc drops the official video for his track Cold City taken off the Cold City album due out as a free download very soon.

At the start of the year Bitter Rocc released a beat tape of 16 instrumentals for MCs to download and tear up, check the Paint By Numbers mixtape (click here)

Costello – Illosophical

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Downloads, Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , , , on July 11, 2012 by craicmusic

Brace yourselves, Illosophical is the debut album from Street Literature member Costello and half-way through 2012 it’s safe to say this is one of the highlights of the year.

A recent interview with Dublin-based music show Community Of Independents serves as a good introduction for new listeners

Fans of DFI Battle League will remember his clashes with Siyo, Desay and Genesis; however on Illosophical the battle mentality is gone instead we have a introspective, thought provoking LP, kept fresh with tracks like ‘Do The Best I Can‘ and ‘Love Affair‘.

The G.I production is sublime, and the beat choices complement the overall project perfectly. ‘Young Apprentice‘ and ‘The Devil’s A Liar‘ almost sound smokey while the drums keep it so raw. There isn’t a bad feature on here, ‘Let Me Blaze It f/ Willa Lee‘, ‘Analysis f/ Lethal Dialect‘ and ‘Played Out f/ 4Real & Jambo‘  demonstrate the scarily strong team of rhymers over at Working Class Records.

Illosophical has been available to stream since 15th March but now you are able to purchase it for €8 (click here)

Tracklist
1. Young Apprentice feat. G.I
2. Realism feat. Willa Lee
3. See The Signs feat. Jambo
4. The Representatives feat. G.I
5. Analysis feat. Lethal Dialect
6. Do The Best I Can
7. Let Me Blaze It feat. Willa Lee
8. Chess Game feat. Lethal Dialect
9. The Devil’s A Liar
10. Love Affair
11. Played Out feat. Jambo & 4Real
12. Rhyme Architecture feat. 4Real & Lethal Dialect
13. Memories Stay feat. Jambo
14. The World Is Yours (Dublin Remix) feat. Willa Lee
15. Illosophical feat. Willa Lee

Lethal Dialect LD50 I/II (Download)

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Downloads with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 19, 2012 by craicmusic

The first two installments of the three part series are now available for free download. This is in preparation for LD50 Magnum Opus which is on the way to being completed and released this summer.

There’s very little I can write about the albums without sounding like a deluded hyped up fan spouting endless praise. Seriously, I can’t stress enough how important these albums are for your collection.
LD50 I & II issued in a new era of hip hop from Ireland; they are one of the reasons Craic Music continues to exist.

There isn’t a bad song across LD50’s 10 tracks or LD50 Pt II’s 11. It’s succinct, self-aware and crafted to near-perfection. Discussing tracks would feel like giving movie-spoilers away, and the replay value here will have you listening until the mp3’s are scratched & warped.

LD50 Tracklist
1. The Beginning
2. Metamorphose
3. Cold And Calculated
4. The National
5. Show You How feat. Tommy Hand
6. They Set You Up (Interlude)
7. Cold Case
8. The International
9. Do You Believe
10. Far From The End

(Download here)

LD50 Part 2 Tracklist
1.  The Sermon
2. Outstr8 feat. G.I
3. Dark Horse
4. The Four Comandantes feat. Mouse & Costello
5. Keep It Real
6. Make My Route feat. Tommy Hand
7. Apparitions feat. Costello & Jambo
8. The Bet (Skit)
9. Black Magic
10. Snakes & Reptiles
11. Get To My Dreams feat. Willa Lee

(Download here)

Magnum Opus will have features from RiRa & Cyrus Malachi; expect production from G.I, Ghost, Danny Diggs, The Expert and 7th Dan. Lethal Dialect is apparently going to contribute to the production as well which should be exciting.
