Irish Rappers Revealed

Ireland's economic recession has caused a boom in one of the unlikeliest sectors of the music industry - Irish rap. This no-holds-barred film follows bands such as the Class A'z as they tour Dublin's working-class clubs trying to find an audience amongst the country's disaffected youth. Despite millions of internet hits the band remain unsigned and competition for dwindling audiences has led to feuds and fights amongst rival rappers. This is a warm-hearted film about growing up as a rapper in Ireland and the struggle to find fame in a genre that is frequently ridiculed.
