RUNOFFBROKE: Wish You Knew

Rising Dublin rapper RUNOFFBROKE is back with his fifth single of the year – but it’s not what you’d expect. That’s because this time, RUNOFFBROKE is all loved up, kinda.  On, “Wish You Knew”, RUNOFFBROKE oozes confidence and delivers his usual effortless flow. This time however, he does so against a beat that combines influencesContinue reading “RUNOFFBROKE: Wish You Knew”

Time to catch up with RUNOFFBROKE?

I make no qualms about it, I know nothing about rap. I don’t really seek it out either. However, that doesn’t mean that the odd artist or album doesn’t squeeze into my weekly listen (Kevin Federline, Dee Dee King)… This week it’s RUNOFFBROKE. The Dublin native recently returned from two years in Berlin where heContinue reading “Time to catch up with RUNOFFBROKE?”

Kanye West-ye

‘ye’ is the latest release from Kanye West. I didn’t have much interest in his last two records but I do like this one. Sure, it’s still West calling himself a “superhero” but he also discusses drugs and his mental health issues.

Drake – If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late

‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late‘ is the fourth mixtape by Drake. We all know who Drake is in 2017 but it was this record that brought him to my attention in 2015. I hadn’t been a fan of his previous records apart from a few tracks, but when I heard ‘Energy’, the secondContinue reading “Drake – If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late”

Kendrick Lamar- DAMN

  Now that Kendrick Lamar’s ‘DAMN‘ has had time to settle in, I think it’s time for a review. I’ve been a big fan of Lamar for about 3 years, some time after the release of ‘Good Kid, M.A.A.D City’. I stumbled across him in a (hipster) coffee shop in Vancouver where his music wasContinue reading “Kendrick Lamar- DAMN”
