Adam Mohamed is an Irish-Sudanese artist from Ballymun. After a jammed packed 2021 that featured his debut release ‘Me & i’, Adam is working towards new music to be released in 2022. In an Irish Hip Hop scene that is ever changing, Adam explores the universal struggles and triumphs that we all face through a blend of his music and spoken word. Constantly honing his craft, he hopes his work highlights the trials and tribulations he has faced and that by being as raw, vulnerable and as honest as possible it resonates with people.
