UPDATE: Photos from RiRa gig are up here now. All photos by Paul Tarpey.
RiRa live this Friday night, February 12th, for free! in baker place as part of their birthday celebrations. Ri-Ra is a rap vetern in the truest sense of the word. A Tullamore B-Boy since back in the day, his name is known all over the world for being one of the most relevant and lyrically gifted wordsmiths around. As part of ScaryEire, he recorded tracks like 'Dole Q', 'Rev It Up' and '10 Victories' which presented a true Irish hiphop sound that has yet to be rivalled 15 years later. Following on from collaborations with Sinead O'Connor, Adrian Sherwood and Tricky, his solo output of releases including 'Front Bar' and 25 O'Clock in the Morning' became homegrown anthems up and down the country and beyond. Last year saw the release of his debut album, 'Horses Work For Donkey Wages', a banger-infused collection of some the realest rhymes and dirty beats released all year. Ireland's most respected hiphop hero makes his first visit to Limerick in many moons to help celebrate Baker Place's 10th anniversary on Friday February 12th with a free live performance in the Underground.
Photo is of that last appearance many moons ago.
