Willzee, about the track, says: “Life is such a precious thing for not only humans but for all living beings on earth, over the last couple of years we have seen the loss of thousands of lives due to a global pandemic, us as people have been worn down by the unknown, my hope with this piece is to help remind people that we are not alone, together we can get there better,”
The music was composed by Enda Gallery and produced by Enda Gallery & Matthew Paull. And video directed by Conor Buckley, camera by Daniel Potts, Motion Graphic by Hugh Heffernan, and edited by Graham Patterson.
Balancing high-intensity raps with considered spoken word, 29 year old Limerick man Willzee draws listeners in with his flawless flow and social commentaries. Willzee is part of a musical movement that brings his hometown Limerick to the top of the Irish rap scene.
He is preparing to release his debut album later this summer via the Berlin label Welcome to the New World, and today shares a new song, a spoken word piece, from the album.
Coming from a traveller community and growing up in the streets of Limerick, Willzee faced adversity, struggle and hardship as well as facing criminal aspects of life. In recent years he found rap, spoken word and film and has immersed himself in music and acting as a true expression of himself.
In late 2020, Willzee released a ‘Nick Nack‘ – a story that reflects the life that the songwriter has managed to escape, by channelling his talents in a positive direction.
He went on to win the 2019 Virgin Media Discovers Short Film Competition with his script for the film ‘Innocent Boy’ which premiered at the Dublin International Film Festival in February 2020.
He has appeared in music videos for his label mate Enda Gallery’s 2019 single ‘It’s Alright’ before they returned with a stunning collaborative piece ‘Dear Friend II’ which placed the spotlight on Limerick City’s documented troubles with gangs, drugs, and knife crime.
As the rapper and actor has turned a corner in his life, he maintains the same can be said of his community – urging a different course for communities in need of care, locally and worldwide.
