Meet MAD  A.B  Slim.

On Sunday 17th April, Rapper Mad A.B Slim, aka Andrew Boland, came down to my hometown of Fatima to have a catch up about his up and coming EP, titled “The  Darkness”.  Andrew who turns 20, this week made the travel arrangement to come down from Drogheda, to talk to your favourite online digital newswire, Fountain News.

Andrew, who only started rapping in 2012, released his first EP two years later, titled “Distraction”, which has been view favourably by critics. The Distraction EP has 6 excellent tracks, including my own favourite “Life on the Edge”.

Formally, from Finglas, Andrew moved out to Drogheda with his family when he was nine years of age. Andrew took to writing as a past time. He met up with another up and coming Finglas native Miss Elayneous, aka Elaine Harrington, who gave a workshop in the Axis in Ballymun. It was at this workshop that Andrew learned to take from what was inside and put it in to a song.  He said it was the best feeling ever and he felt humbled to work alongside Elaine, another rapper and hip hop artists.

This year summer 2016, Andrew will be releasing his 7 track EP called “The Darkness”.  Very recently he was out in his old home stomping grounds, Finglas, shooting a video, for the track “I lost It”, with DG Media. He was also supported in Finglas with another up and coming rap artist Cale Smith. Cale is no stranger when it comes to helping up and coming artists.

I asked Andrew, who inspires him? He replied Lauren Hill, from the group The Fugees and Queen Latifah, no sexism here then!

Andrew will be hosting a stall at this year’s very first “Fatima Rocks Festival” on Sunday 15th May at the F2 Centre, Ruben Street Fatima, here in Dublin 8. He will be selling signed copies of his “Distraction” EP, for a mere €5. He will be also performing at Sweeney’s Bar on Dame Street on 29th April. You can follow Andrew on FaceBook, sound cloud, twitter, ETC

We at the Fountain would like to wish Andrew, the very best for the future.
