MAD A B Slim

Hip Hop // Finglas, Dublin

I am an Irish Hip-Hop Artist from Finglas in Dublin called MAD A B Slim, I started rapping at 15 due to my inspiration by Finglas female rapper Temper-Mental MissElayneous. I first listened to Eminem (Slim Shady) in my early school days but broke away from Hip-Hop till I was 14, I then got into Finglas Hip-Hop Group called On The Low, the lads really inspired me, but then I heard Lunitic (Ballymun Rapper RIP) who played the Bodhran and spat that realness in Oldschool Hip-Hop Mixed with a Celtic Irish Funk. Later got stuck into Street Literature (Lunitic was also within the group along side GI who was in On The Low, Costello & 4Real). Lethal Dialect and other Irish Hip-Hop Artists such as The Class A'z and Siyo I listened to also, but what made me really pick up the pen was MissElayneous. Her style is what motivated me to write my first rhymes. Ever since I have been doing music and moved onto Heavier Hip-Hop from the 90's. My Style is based around that 90's vibe Its Oldschool MAD A B only, although the odd time I can break into other genre's to step outside my comfort zone and see where my talent can really go.
