Dublin rapper Lethal Dialect has been a busy man, releasing his debut album last year, following it up with the superb Part II earlier this year, with Magnum Opus set to conclude the trilogy next year. ‘Sun Soaked’, the first track from his forthcoming album, is a slightly breezier production to what we've heard from LD to date. He still sounds authoritative yet humble, [...]
Dublin rapper Lethal Dialect was one of the most impressive performers at Camden Crawl Dublin back in May.

A lot of rappers got flavor, and some [...]

Painting home truths and realistic skies from the suburbs of Dublin, Lethal Dialect represents the more traditional line of colloquial rap music in Ireland. There’s no bravado here, just great rap tunes relatable to anybody living in a post Celtic Tiger era. That’d be all of us then. Last year, Lethal Dialect released the best Irish rap debut album in a long time. 2012 brings Part II. Describe yourself and your music. Realism and everything it brings with it. Sometimes raw gutter, sometimes laid back, and everything in-between. [...]
A fair bit of Irish rap stuff has appeared on my radar lately so I thought I'd put the best of it all in one place here and you can have a listen. Recommendations are welcome in the comments...

Lethal Dialect drops some bars for BOSS TV.
Dublin rapper Lethal Dialect serves up this offering of intelligent rhymes and top notch production that stays true to early to mid 90's hiphop, no gimmicks just rawness. The album opens with a haunting piano loop and some excerts of classic hiphop from Wu Tang and Big L among others and this sets the scene aswell as showing what LD's influences are before the song The Beginning of The End kicks in and he proceeds to drop knowledge over the downtempo beat. Next up is Metamorphose and i found this to be a highlight because some of the rhyme patterns [...]
