JAFARIS – Performing at Hard Working Class Heroes
What you may need to know…
01. The Dubliner formerly known as ProFound has been making waves in Irish hip-hop in recent times.
02. Seemingly oozing with a new confidence since changing his pseudonym, Jafaris is no slouch outside the sphere of hip-hop and spoken word, appearing in Sing Street and writing scripts in his own right. Accompanying Hare Squead on tour and navigating the Irish festival grind has fine-honed his live presence.
03. Streaming above is the video for Lucid, released last month, and shot/edited by Gorilla and collaborators.
04. Confirmed for Hard Working Class Heroes fest, happening in Dublin from October 6th-8th.
Verdict: Spacey, psychey beats underpin lyrics and honesty reminiscent of early-2000s UK hip-hop. A compelling prospect.
