Rob Kelly: ‘Dropkicked’ (Feat. Slaine) (Hip-Hop)

This song’s had a bit of shitty publicity, primarily due to the fact that Irish punk-rockers Dropkick Murphys refused to clear the sample from ‘I’m Shipping Up to Boston’ for Rob Kelly to use legally. Considering Kelly’s an independent artist just trying to make some bread, I’ve always thought that was pretty fucked up of DKM, and I lost a fair amount of respect for the band ever since I first heard such story.

This is a great song, which has thankfully been re-uploaded to YouTube.

(Here’s Kelly addressing the issue:)
