Breaking the mould
Gerard i2 is a fearless hip hop MC and producer from Strabane, Northern Ireland. It’s a part of the world which Gerard admits isn’t widely known for its hip hop artists but that hasn’t held him back. The rapper, who regularly plays live shows alongside a live drummer, has two independent album releases already under his belt and a third in the pipeline.
Rapping over a mix of old school beats and newer electronic production, no two of Gerard’s tracks sound the same. Hard to argue with his delivery too which is fast, often furious and razor sharp earning him a dedicated online following in the process.
