Willy G Bio

Willy G is a Hip Hop Artist from Donegal, Ireland. He started writing rhymes at the age of 12 and has been at it ever since, you could say he is addicted to it.

At 12, it was Will Smiths song ‘Men in Black’ that got him into writing, as he copied every lyric down in a notepad to rap along with.

He got more serious about it when his uncle bought him Eminem’s ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’ and he was blown away by the content and rhyme scheme complexity of it.

He released various songs recorded on a cheap microphone that he screamed into during his early teens, but over the years he bought new equipment and lowered his voice so the quality improved.

Around 18 years of age, he formed a group called Restless Ambitions with fellow MCs Mugsy, B-Koz and D.C., but around the time Gerard i2 ( A well known MC and producer from Strabane, Northen Ireland) joined the group, Willy was diagnosed with drug-induced psychosis and so split from the group and began a decade long struggle with Mental illness.

Willy was in and out of hospital for years, between times he formed a new group called Fresh Eire with MC/Producer Steve D. Through all this time, willy kept writing and releasing songs online, eventually recording 2 EPs with Steve D and an EP of his own too.

After a long battle with what was eventually diagnosed as Schizophrenia, Willy has got the treatment sorted, with intra-muscular injections and tablets keeping the symptoms at bay, he has managed to stay out of hospital for the past few years.

With this in mind, he is ready to make his mark in the rap game, and make up for lost time. With a new EP called ‘Streets Talkin’ on the way soon, followed by a new Fresh Eire album, ‘Irish Madmen’, Willy is back on top of things, determined to make good music for people to enjoy.

Streets Talkin and Irish Madmen will be followed by a free mixtape with producer ”Insane Beatz’,  and then Fresh Eire are releasing a Rock EP. With many more Remixes and Freestyles in the works, along with numerous projects, this will be an exciting year for Willy G fans!

Fresh Eire is pumping out great music!

Fresh Eire is comprised of Willy G and Steve D, hailing from the North West of Ireland (Derry/Donegal) they are a Hip Hop Duo that have been making music for years now.

Willy is the MC , Steves the Producer, but he can rhyme too, as well as singing the hooks.

This week, Steve has made a tonne of beats, and released a few remixes of popular artists songs too. These remixes are bouncing, you can hear what B.O.B would sound like spitting on a Fresh Eire production below!

Along with a B.O.B remix, Steve has put out a remix of Akon’s Beautiful which works really well, you wont find a rock/dance vibe mixed with R & B anywhere else! Check it out below!

Along with those two cracker tunes, Steve has Remixed Rihanna’s tune Diamonds too! I personally think it sounds even better than the origional! Youll appreciate it most on big speakers, check it out below!

I personally vouch for this lad, his beats are top notch quality, they’ve got an unrivalled originality and just sound epic! So check them out Here on Beat Stars.

New Releases: ‘I’m the One Remix, Ballistica, Walkin’ Home’

There is some new Willy G music out now! I have been a busy man! I’ve got the DJ Khaled ‘I’m the One’ Remix fully mixed and mastered by Steve D, and have released it on soundcloud, listen below!

I was just sick of hearing that overplayed Justin Beiber shite on the music channels, so i decided to fire some shots at him and his fans, while singing a better melody over the beat too. I mixed in some multi-syllables and humour as well to keep it interesting. There is a video coming soon for this Remix, Steve D and I will be shooting this weekend.

Along with ‘I’m the One’, I have written a new song called Ballistica and put together a wee video for it, check it out below.

Ballistica was written when a branch of NSC (No Copyright Sounds) dropped a comment on one of my Steemit Rap Challenge videos, suggesting I look through their music and use some of it for my page, as it would improve my videos. They were right! I am really happy with this Ballistica Video and Song, its one of my favourites yet!

I’ve also released a video for my new song ‘Walkin’ Home’ off the ‘Streets Talkin’ EP which is dropping this friday. Its an emotional song about a girl I used to go out with, just talking about how much it meant to me to have spent that time with her, and how much it hurt when we split up. Check out the video, put together by Steve D, below.

With all this music coming out this week, you guys are surely delighted and excited for the Streets Talkin’ EP dropping this friday! Featuring the underground hit Let’s Party that has been well received at many open mic nights, youz will finally have it to download on Sound Cloud. And Chillin’ is another good party song, to get the party started with! I’ve got another personal tune about my past relationships with Waves, and I go all out on some lyrical shit on Spit Shine. To top it off I give a big ‘fuck you’ to all the haters on You Can Hate Me. Keep your eyes peeled.

…Oh and I almost forgot, Steve D has done a lyric video for the new Fresh Eire single ‘My Bannana!’ Check it out below, and thanks for taking the time out to show support!!
