Dublin rapper Paul Alwright, AKA – Lethal Dialect, has been a premier name on the Irish Rap Scene for over a decade.
His material has packed a serious punch ever since his breakout in 2011 with the release of his album ‘LD50’. This was followed by the release of ‘LD50 part 2’ just over a year later, with both albums receiving critical acclaim from magazines such as Hot press, and bloggers such as Nialler 9.
A wave of anticipation greeted his third album ‘1988’ (named after his year of birth), which was released in 2014. Comparisons to rappers such as Nas have been common, as have regular gigs in some of Ireland’s best music venues – including performances alongside Damian Dempsey and Glen Hansard.
Yet despite all the praise being directed towards him as Ireland’s own ‘voice of Hip-Hop’, it is clear that the Cabra native wants to stay on humble ground.
A man of casual charm and confidence, he prefers to see himself as an individual artist rather than falling into a specific category or movement. It is this drive that has shaped his career to date and continues to inspire him.
