Their latest single 'Longford Town' portrays both rappers' positive and negative experiences of growing up in the area.

Nevlonne notes that there is plenty of talent in the community but the facilities to nurture that talent need to improve.

"There's a lot of young artists in Longford. They need studios, recording facilities, a green room where you can shoot videos. That's definitely something that we want to do as we get older. That's part of the reason we're doing this is to show that there is talent in this town and maybe someone can fund this so other people can do it aswell"
