The documentary centres itself around multiple interviews with various players on the hip hop scene and features a litany of noticeable Irish rappers. These included choice prize winners Rusangano Family, Kojaque, Ophelia McCabe, Mango x Mathman, Blindboy Boatclub and many more.
Citing the appearance of Limerick group Rubber Bandits as the genesis for the current wave of hip hop and the success of the Rusangano Family, another Limerick-based group, as the catalyst driving it, the documentary illustrates a thriving movement with a tight-knit culture of artists behind it.
Director Gavin Fitzgerald, who was heavily involved in the Conor McGregor biopic ‘Notorious’, here combines his love for all things Irish and combines it with his flair for moving realist productions.
