After hearing that Mobb Deep would be playing the Voodoo Lounge on the 1st of August, I was intrigued to learn more about the promoters, Bloodshed Records, who would be hosting what could be the best hip hop gig of 2014. Founded by Tall-Order and Rew, Bloodshed have already signed female MC, Bexi, Young Jay, and 9 year old sensation Ben-R, who appeared on Ireland’s Late Late Show In February this year.
After releasing Tall-Order’s mixtape featuring the likes of Kool G Rap and Killah Priest, his follow up album ‘The Tree of Life & Death’, was the first Irish hip hop album to reach number one of the itunes charts. He’s is currently working on his second studio album after writing, starring in and completing the soundtrack to upcoming Irish film, ‘Control’.
Following the tragic death of Rew’s younger brother in August 2013, they set up a fundraising event which featured Tupac affiliates The Outlawz. After the success of this gig, they brought Onyx to Dublin in May and are now set to host The Infamous Mobb Deep August 1st. Tickets are available from ticketmaster and it will feature support acts from Ireland, U.K and U.S, with Mobb Deep hitting the stage at half 11.
UPDATE: Bloodshed Records presents Serial Killers (B-Real, Xzibit & Demrick) live in the Voodoo Lounge, Dublin September 25th. Tickets are €33.90 and are on sale now, available from Ticketmaster.
