Music from the soul. Rebel rock star status. From the lyrics to the beats to the swag, New Jersey’s own Black Irish epitomizes real authentic hip hop. Born and raised in Union City, NJ, Black Irish has been active in the independent hip hop scene for a good 12 years now. His first appearances were as Absalute, his first moniker which he used in the beginning of his solo career and with group The Fakulty that he and producer Cole Seer formed in 2000. In 2003, emcee Danny Rogust decided it was time to move on to the next level in his career by working with new producers WrekRoom, Brown13, Dee Shot and L.A. producer Beat Butcher as well as changing his name to Black Irish.

“Black Irish was a term my mother and family used to describe us. There’s many myths to the term but one my mother always used was that people called irish people with dark hair and dark eyes “Black Irish”. “I also felt like it was sort of an insult and since I’ve always felt like a black sheep and an artist that can make dark type music, I decided to rock the new name. It truly felt like my real name, like more than my government name.” B.I. released his first official solo album “Straight, No Chaser” in 2006 to small buzz in the independent scene. Labeled as a classic by many hip hop fans, “Straight, No Chaser” didn’t prove to be a commercial success but did receive much critical acclaim.

Back with the same new producers and an old friend, Black Irish releases “Lamb From The Lion’s Mouth”. With a mix of beats ranging from original tracks by WrekRoom to unreleased industry tracks, “Lamb” has been receiving a strong buzz throughout the music industry. With a strong musical soundtrack, well written lyrics and superior placement and mixing by WrekRoom member Raul Romero and Brown13, Black Irish has awaken the dreary hip hop scene with a fresh new sound reminiscent of 90’s hip hop with a futuristic feel. Old friend and former partner Cole Seer makes an appearance on “Shot To Ya Chest”, a powerful club banger sure to get the alcohol flowing and the ladies shaking their asses.

With an array of song topics from his 6 year old son to his marriage to the poor economic climate, B.I. touches every subject every man or woman deals with everyday with a sick twist to it at times. “It’s rock n roll. High energy and very passionate real hip hop. I want to get everyone to download and enjoy the movement.” Podcast radio show has the new album available as a free download right now so check out and download the new B.I. album “Lamb”.
