Irish hip hop trailblazer Collie shares new seven-track EP

Collie Collins links up with producer RedEye for a new project.

 

It’s no secret that hip hop artists in Ireland are slowly being taken very seriously. As a whole, the genre is in a much healthier place than it has been in the past.

However, that’s only down to the bar being set across the years by a selection of credible artists from the pioneering Scary Éire, to Lethal Dialect (now known as Paul Alwright) and, of course, Collie Collins.

Collie became the first rapper on the island to put out a release on a major record label, when he dropped ‘Some Sham’ via Universal Music in 2004. He’s since carved out a career in music, staying firmly rooted to his underground origins.

The artist has now released a new project entitled ‘The RedEye Collection’, a seven-track EP.
