The Bastard – Irish hip-hop FTW!

The Bastard – Irish hip-hop FTW!


Back in November 2009, I had a light-hearted look at some of the terrible rap and hip-hop that is made in Ireland. Things are getting better here, aided by the blog Craic Music, the likes of Melodica Deathship and Lethal Dialect.

Add The Bastard to that list. Leigh and Blake are members of Exxon Valdez who have released a free EP of brooding rap. It reminds me of Buck 65. Consider me super-impressed. The video was directed, filmed and edited by CFMeister.
