The boys are back.
Between Christmas and New Year, there really isn’t too much happening about the place as most people tend to fall into a sort of timeless stupor with no end or no energy in sight.
But that’s all changed this year; your favourite Republican rappers are gatecrashing Christmas and shaking up the City Hall with their controversial melodies.
After over a decade on the circuit, the Belfast trio recently finished their debut album, which is expected to rocket to number one in the Irish charts upon its release. The hip-hop group will be performing the soon-to-be-unleashed bangers at their Cork gig.
“Since they emerged from a squat in West Belfast, Kneecap have created their own genre of Irish punk rap, melding the Irish and English language with electrifying energy, and spearheading a cultural revival,” wrote the promoters on Instagram.
Despite courting controversy over the years, their ascent shows no signs of stopping, especially now with the backing of Belfast-based studio Heavenly Records, with whom the trio signed their first record deal (with tricolour quills) this month.
