God, I love free stuff! The Propaganda EP is the follow up release to both the mc's solo albums released jointly last year. With the pair heavily featuring in each other's debuts, it was inevitable that some form of collaborative release was gonna appear on the scene. The EP has seven tracks with some impressive features on both the beats and on the Mic, all of which come from the emerald isle… With the absence of his own beats on his album 'the gospel', Jonnyboy decided to get back to what he was initially known for, production, contributing to three of the seven tunes. Intox is back of course as rugged as usual but with him rapping on some smooth laid back shit, he's giving our ears quite a nice mix.
The EP opens up strongly, with DJ Mayhem providing the cuts on 'keep it moving' and this follows up with 'pissing in the wind' which brings in Mav Sabre to chat about life as an Irish rapper. One of my favourite tracks is 'what's love' featuring Terawrizt. In a political storytelling song, it sees the three mc's putting themselves in the shoes of Gaza rebels, inspired by the eastern styled beat produced by Irish hip hop alter ego, Cooper Hatchet.
Each MC get's their own moment to shine on the EP, with Intox blessing 'my requiem' and Jonnyboy on 'who's best?'
The final song is a bit a cracker, produced by Danny Diggs and again features Terawrizt, 'where's the sun' has some slow emotional storytelling which helps fade things out nicely.
Overall, the Propaganda EP gets my approval. The lads keep it nice and simple, making it easy on the ear. All the tracks are well produced, professional and the features are well chosen, giving it loads of replay value.
Stereotypes are extremely hard things to overcome and this type of release is a step towards removing those in connection to Ireland and Hip Hop.
If you're reading this and still a bit dubious, download it and then maybe you'll be a bit more impressed than you initially thought you would be.
Well done to the lads for this release and hopefully they do well from it

"The Great thing about Jonnyboy is that he's not afraid to talk about whats going on right now in his own back yard and talk about that back yard in a real way.No G's,no bling,no americanisations,no bullsh*t basically" * Rap Ireland Magazine

After listening to this Album I denounced the saying that ''Hiphop is dead'', well, may be elsewhere but not in Ireland and certainly not for Jonnyboy. You can marvel at his rhyme skills and carefree delivery of punch lines, the subliminal killer is his compelling story telling skills. From the first track to the last, you are drawn into his world as he touches many issues like state of affairs in Ireland, emcees killing the art and his childhood experiences growing up in the north side of Dublin in the 80's.
The production is dope; the beats are reminiscent of classic hiphop beats back in the days and the featured upcoming artists like Joe Mac, Hazy Jane, Terawrizt, Intox and Apogee added variety to the album. Conscious stuff from a mature mind though he's only 22 and come to think of it, the entire album was written, arranged and produced within a month. Hiphop is well and truly alive! The gospel according to Jonnyboy is a must have, preach on brother!!!
Yes! Firstly, its home grown, no gimmicks, no adulterated stuff, this is the real art in play and must be appreciated. Support real hiphop; get a copy on sale in Golden disc donaghmede, Abbey disc Lower Liffey Street and All City Records Crow Street Temple Bar.
