James Costello and Git Buck are poets and hip hop artists from Dublin's northside. Earlier this year they were the subject of a documentary called Broken Song. They've now released a rap album called Mary Jane. Arena asked them to come into studio - along with blues singer William Lee - known as Willa - to perform 'Illosophical'.
A new film 'Broken Song' opens at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival on Tuesday 19th February. Director Claire Nix and Rapper Costello join Seán Rocks - www.jdiff.com. The trailer can be viewed here: https://vimeo.com/59613055
