Premiere: R3D, Tony Konstone & Evans Junior beat the buzzer in the video for ‘Don’t Push Me’

Words: Dylan Murphy

Three of Ireland’s premiere rappers have teamed up for a new mixtape and we’ve got the exclusive first look of their video for ‘Don’t Push Me’.

Super groups often feel like Frankensteined crews designed by out of touch A&Rs with no chemistry and reasonable rationale to exist – but not this one.

Evans Junior, R3D and Tony Konstone have joined forces for what might be Ireland’s most exciting new hip hop project right now. Evans has made a name for himself as a chameleon-like artist as comfortable laying down infectious hooks as he is penning punch lines over drill and trap. Meanwhile, Tony Konstone brings a wealth of experience to the table as one half of Hare Squead and R3D has stepped up from behind the decks to add the final piece to the puzzle.

The organic formation of the group was built upon by relentless studio sessions and an appetite to bring a new sound to the culture.

Ahead of their new mixtape All Star Weekend, the trio have dropped ‘Don’t Push Me’ and seen co-signs from the likes of Charlie Sloth and Virgil Abloh. Produced by the up and coming Liam Harris and executively produced by Lord Waverton, the track pays homage to o the 1982 Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five hit record ‘The Message’ with a fresh Irish twist. 

We’ve got the exclusive first look at the video for ‘Don’t Push Me’ directed by Rejjie Albert and assisted by Raphael Mapwata & Nathan Sauramba.
