Cruinniú na nÓg Rap Challenge

Rap Challenge is the latest addition to Cruinniú na nÓg 2020. Our partners at DabbledooMusic have put together a bunch of top tips and tricks to get you started writing your own raps! It’s all covered – from understanding the basics to beatboxing – there’s even a couple of backing tracks for you to practice over!

Here’s a fun challenge for all the budding rappers out there!

Growing out of The Bronx, New York in the early 1970s, rapping and MC’ing was a big part of the Hip Hop movement along with break dancing, DJing and scratching, and graffiti. Hip Hop music grew and spread across America and the world to become one of the most important genres in popular music.

If you haven’t tried rapping before we have put together some advice and examples for you to follow.

We have also created two special backing tracks for you to rap over! You can find them in our free parents content at

A selection will be added to the Cavan/Monaghan Creative Youth YouTube Channel for Cruinniú na nÓg on Saturday June 13th. So get writing and get rhyming! You can share your rap with us using the #dabbledoorap.
