“Black the Ripper, a wee bit of rap in the morning wakes you up.”
Kincasslagh Parish church, Donegal.
Father Pat was taking part in a live-stream at the empty church when he accidentally started playing a track by late British rapper
Black the Ripper over the sound system.

Speaking on N.O.R.E.’s Drink Champs podcast, [legendary New York rapper] DMX began to preview his new album. He’s got some notable guests, including Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Alicia Keys, and Usher. Perhaps most surprising was when he proclaimed:
“I got Bono — the U2 n***a.”
…the Bono song is called “Skyscrapers.” “Shit’s crazy. It got a Miami feel to it,” DMX teased.
Of Bono’s part he said:
“All muthafuckas need to do is listen to it, and we good.”
No need for the language.

Wes Tank that Dr Seuss lyrics work well as rap.
Here, he performs the progressively more tongue-twisting
‘Fox In Socks’ (1965) over beats from ‘What’s the Difference’ and ‘Let Me Ride’.
You (or indeed, your children) may also care for his versions of
‘Green Eggs and Ham’ and ‘The Lorax’.

Myself and a friend Michael O’Connor are currently crossing the United States making films and playing music. We are two Meath men making documentaries, comedy sketches, street interviews and vlogs.
