Irish emcee, Sirplus, is prepping his debut LP, Rhymthmic Irish Poetry, which will be released on 11-26-2013 courtesy of RBC Records. Sirplus garnered a great deal of press for his 2012 single release, "Thousand Volts Zappin," and his debut features an impeccable lineup of guest artists and features including Kurupt, J. French, Warren G, and legendary spitter Chino XL who guests on the first leak from the project.
The EP is a project that Cryptic has long wanted to tackle, working with exclusively sample based production that he would never in a million years be able to clear. Cryptic found the prog inspired goodness and set out to reinterpret these sounds by dropping his worldview over them.
