From Rejjie Snow to Simi Crowns, the Irish hip-hop scene is definitely on the rise. Even so, "hip-hop trio from Dublin" is still a pretty rare sentence to hear, but that's exactly what Hare Squead are and they bang hard. Comprised of rappers Tony Konstone and E-Knock and singer Jessy Rose, the now twenty-somethings met while skateboarding in a park and started writing together shortly after. Blending hip-hop, soul and pop in a way that feels both soothing and full of energy, the results carry some heavy Chance the Rapper and De La Soul vibes with a distinctly Irish twist.

Below we're premiering the video for a Moon Willis (WSTRN, Raye) co-produced track called "Long Way To Go", directed by Ed Moustafa and shot by Ben Doyle.
