Hip hop and traditional music combine on the latest from Limerick’s Strange Boy

Strange Boy is a 1000-year-old poet channelling through the body of a young man from Limerick. With hard-hitting, thought-provoking lyrics, Strange Boy combines hip hop and Irish traditional music and is signed with the Berlin-based record label WELCOME TO THE NEW WORLD. Working with his producer and fellow Irishman Enda Gallery, his debut album HOLY / UNHOLY will be released on June 25th.
