Messiah J & The Expert are two nice lads that went to nice schools in Dublin. Which, on paper, means they are very unlikely candidates for hip hop awesomeness. On paper, tho, Mick Jagger is some old bloke who’s a member of Lords Cricket Club. Messiah J & The Expert are in fact amazing, both lyrically and musically. I love J’s lyrics – they are at once very very particularly Dublin but also universal truths, and a lot of the time pretty funny. And The Expert’s beats are savage. Sometimes it makes me sad that they are not more famous than they are.
Watch this video, but more importantly, go buy their albums. Yes, actually buy them. Part with your cash.
ps. i think this video is class. but i did lol at the lads in the garden around 2.00…they so gangsta…eh…ahem….hmmmm.
