The Limerick rap artist Strange Boy is one of the most unique and talented voices in rap and beyond in the country of Ireland at the moment.
‘The Pope’ uses an acoustic guitar and bodhrán backing for Strange Boy’s raps about aspiration of an unusual nature – the song is “written from the perspective of a twelve year old child whose dream is to attain the perks of being the biggest rockstar on the planet, while denouncing all that is sacred and holy.”
“I want a big house like the pope has, I want lots of fans like the pope has,” Strange Boy raps on a production by Enda Gallery aka Delush.
