The Truth About Irish Hip Hop is a documentary about the rise of hip hop in Ireland and the changing attitudes towards the once foreign art form. Ireland is renowned for it’s writers and poets so why hasn’t hip hop entered the cultural mainstream here? Well this documentary shows it happening before our eyes and the movement will only increase with the dedicated new wave of rappers breaking through the scene.

Featuring Rusangano Family, This Side Up, Mango & MathMan, Fifth Element & Doublescreen, Jafaris, The Rubberbandits, Nialler 9 and many more.

Directed and produced by Gavin FitzGerald & Mark Hayes
