Limerick rapper Willzee reflects the darker impulses of the down and out on ‘Nick Nack’


Limerick MC Willzee’s ‘Nick Nack’ is a track which rumbles and growls with the best of them.

Featuring a verse from UK artist Mic Righteous, the song’s character is threatening and extortionate on his new track ‘Nick Nack’, a track which MC with the traveller background uses to reflect the darker impulses of the down and out, and the song, produced by delush’s Enda Gallery which uses those sentiments to make art from.

This is the third release from the Berlin label Welcome to the New World this month, following delush’s ‘Lean on It’, and Tolu Makay’s ‘Don’t Let Go’.

Willzee bio

As a young man Willzee was angry at the world, coming from a traveller community, growing up in the streets of Limerick and facing adversity, struggle and hardship as well as facing criminal aspects of life. In recent years he found rap, spoken word and film and has immersed himself in music as a true expression of himself. His latest single ‘Nick Nack’, reflects the life that the songwriter has managed to escape, by channelling his talents in a positive direction.

It is with this positivity that Wilzee hopes to pass onto his community, a sense of self. By focusing on music and film, he has gone on to win the 2019 Virgin Media Discovers Short Film Competition with his script for the film ‘Innocent Boy’ which premiered at the Dublin International Film Festival in February 2020. He has appeared in music videos for his label mate Delush’s 2019 single ‘It’s Alright’ before they returned with a stunning collaborative piece ‘Dear Friend II’ which placed the spotlight on Limerick City’s documented troubles with gangs, drugs, and knife crime. As the rapper and actor has turned a corner in his life, he maintains the same can be said of his community – urging a different course for communities in need of care, locally and worldwide.
