Irish homegrown producer and vocalist, Plantain Papi, is known for creatively fusing pop, afrobeat & caribbean sounds together. Debuting his career in 2017 with the release of ‘Bailiff’, the summer anthem went on to independently chart at number 29 on Spotify’s UK Viral 50.
Plantain Papi has since released an army of singles that have been featured in many curated playlists around the globe such as; AfroBashment, Rap IE and The New Eire. These playlists recognise the change in the urban music scene currently being led by Plantain Papi.
This year Plantain was selected to be on RTE 2fm Rising List 2021 after holding the ‘Track of the Week’ title multiple times in 2020.
Plantain’s unique way with words stems from his deep admiration for spoken word artists such as Jalal Nuriddin and Gil Heron which inturn fueled his passion for rap. Alongside mainstream influences such as Drake and Kool and the Gang, Plantain maintains the original old school sound of hip-hop as well as incorporating a new school twist.
Plantain also has his very own headline show coming in October in collaboration with MCD Productions. This show will come on the back of his debut album early summer 2021.
