Leigh MichaelGrief Verse

Bray [County Wicklow] rapper Leigh Michael (top) has composed an emotional tribute to his late father.

Leigh says:

“This week marked the 5-year anniversary of my father’s passing so I decided to make a video of one of the more cathartic verses I’ve written on the experience.

This particular verse focuses on the shock and unexpectedness of his death and the aftermath felt by myself and my loved ones during that time. The beat is produced by Chap Stallion.”

Nick says: Let grief be a fallen leaf.

Bray-based rapper Leigh Michael goes backwards

Leigh writes:

In the latest episode of A Capella Archive I shake things up by writing my rhyme in reverse.

Beginning with the last line and working my way to the opening.

I find writing practice excercises like this can be a useful tool to combat writer’s block.

Leigh Michael

Syntax suffices and hits this time
Your semantics practiced is in decline
Your pedantic static enterprise.
Is a tantrum: that of a neglected child.


Shots fired.

Bray rapper Leigh Michael goes below the fold in Acapella Archive, episode 18.

Leigh writes:

Today’s episode is a response to a comment hinting at the ‘private language’ and ‘Chinese Room’ arguments for potential philosophical themes to explore in verse. I’m also going to take the opportunity to explore the nature of online commenting.

And how its done.

Bray rapper Leigh Michael writes:

I’m delighted to share with you episode 16 of ‘A Capella Archive’ – ‘Biro-technics’. In this episode I return to my word play ground to have fun with writing metaphors, expressing my technique with an inter-changeable flow. Hope you like it.
