about

The Do My Thing EP was our third release. The Idea behind the title track was inspired by my general attitude towards life, live and let live. When I first heard the beat I wrote the chorus then and there.

The song allowed me to step out of the battle rhymes style and into broader more conceptual song writing. It was the beginning of style experimentation that still drives my writing to this day.

The beats were each so inspiringly different. With a unique approach from each producer it really helped me expand as a lyricist and pushed me to adapt my tone of voice and delivery to the musical environment.

I would say to my self "Never turn down a beat, adapt to it".Still do.

Man on the mic's hook was a personal tip of the hat to the The Pharcyde.

Yummy mummy was our reminder not to take our selves too seriously and always have fun.

about

Leigh Michael County Wicklow, Ireland

I've been rapping, free styling, writing and recording hip hop songs since 2002. In the past decade I've been apart of a few groups and used more than a few names experimenting with many styles.

Taking a psychedelic approach to lyricism I continue to pay homage to the schools of thought that transformed my perspective on what it means to lead a happy and fulfilling life.
