R.A.P. Ferreira for Dublin gig


R.A.P. Ferreira is one of the few monikers of Chicago MC and poet Rory Ferreira, an mc, producer, theorist and rapper.

I was a big fan of his 2020 album Purple Moonlight Pages, the first full studio outing under the R.A.P. Ferreira name, where Ferreira delves deep into the realm of jazz, pitting his nigh spoken-word delivery atop the wail of a trumpet, saxophone or running double bass line.

Nice to see then that R.A.P. Ferreira is playing a headline show at The Workman’s Cellar this summer, Tuesday August 15th 2023, courtesy of Singular Artists.

Recent music has seen the artist pick up a guitar for some blues inspiration. See the recent live set below.

About R.A.P. Ferreira

R.A.P. Ferreira fka milo aka scallops hotel is an mc, producer and theorist working in the Black arts tradition commonly categorised as rap. Having founded the label Ruby Yacht in 2015 and since releasing all of his music through this channel, Ferreira has earned a sizable following within independent hip hop by rigorous, constant touring and an elevated, explorational style of performance. He is known for an uncompromised, utopic flow that speaks directly to the root of the listener. 

By 2018, the young artist galvanised his presence in the American rap scene with the opening of Soulfolks Records & Tapes in Biddeford, Maine. Ferreira has a sprawling, limitless catalogue ranging years, names, geographies, intentions, collaborations, and vocabularies.

In an era defined by keyword search, soundbyte, cosign, marketing and virality this artist’s work stands out by not cow tailing to the movements and trends of the digital sphere. 

He currently makes his home in Nashville, Tennessee where he continues to helm the Ruby Yacht while studying to become a blues guitar legend and a farmer.
