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!
