“Ladies & gentlemen, Casper Walsh, Eskimo-mo-motherf****in’ Supreme, the super producer Evan Kennedy, It’s Versatile, the first Irish Hip Hop supergroup!” - Coolio
Versatile are Ireland’s anti-heroes of Hip Hop, having already driven music fans and media alike to despair and delight in equal measure and now look to continue their signature lack of subtlety with Flashy Flashy, their new single which, like it or not, will be stuck in your head indefinitely, whether you have a big swinging clock or not! On being asked about the meaning behind Flashy Flashy, the band were quick to respond:
“Get the watch in”
Summer 2019 saw Versatile – rappers Casper Walsh and Eskimo Supreme, alongside producer and DJ Evan Kennedy - make Irish music history and undoubtedly cemented themselves as Ireland's most successful Hip Hop group.
Their headline show at Cork Marquee (5,000 cap) sold out in a matter of hours making it the largest Hip Hop concert to be headlined by an Irish artist in Ireland. This was a huge milestone for Versatile as one of their idols Snoop Dogg headlined the same stage in 2010. This success was soon followed by their unforgettable performance at Longitude Festival ‘19 to a 40,000 strong crowd.
Following that they sold out their biggest headline concert to date at the Three Arena Dublin, once again in a matter of hours. Leading up to this show Versatile released a single & music video for ‘Escape Wagon’ with Grammy award winning West Coast Legend, Coolio. The Compton legend joined Versatile as a surprise guest at their sold out 3 Arena show in Dublin and they performed Escape Wagon + his Grammy award winning anthem ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ together.
Next up Versatile landed a spot on Snoop Dogg’s ‘I Wanna Thank Me’ Arena Tour alongside Warren G, Obie Trice, D12, Tha Dogg Pound and RJmrLA with dates throughout the U.K, Ireland & Europe.
Versatile won best Hip Hop act at the UK Urban Music Awards 2020. Previous winners include Stormzy, Tinie Tempah, Krept & Konan, Giggs and many more.
Versatile‘s debut album is set for release January 2021
