Lightning quick raps and a brooding background beat bring 'Men On A Mission.' to life from a brilliant trio.
Irish hip-hop is stepping up a level this week with the release of 'Men On A Mission.' from trio Rory Sweeney, Curtisy and Ahmed, With Love.
Ahmed Karim Tamu (Ahmed, With Love.) and producer Rory Sweeney have collaborated before on 'X-Pac Heat', but Gavin Curtis (Curtisy) has joined the fun on their powerful new track.
Seemingly taking inspiration from Detroit and Flint's new wave rap scene, the fast-paced background instrumentation is all hype and no chill. Fast-paced flows and lines like "he sells weed by the sea-side" litter 'Men On A Mission.' as they traipse through Dublin.
The black and white visuals were directed by Belfast film maker Conor Bradley, and follows Ahmed and Curtisy across the Irish capital over the course of 24 hours. Filmed over two days in October, the video expresses a deep fascination with O'Connell Street. We can't wait to see what the rivetingly talented trio bring us next.
