Such is the case of Jack Daniel Lynch aka MC Lynchy as he is known to his legion of online fans.
The 18-year-old young man from the Ballyneety are of the city is described as Limerick’s own “Slim Shady”.
Lynch was developing his unique form of freestyling ever since his father came home with a club mix CD when he was just 9.
He has now become a web celebrity after his latest lyrical performance went viral.
His performance –surrounded by school friends at a bus stop has attracted an astounding 22 million on Facebook and is packing out teenage discos.
The down-to-earth youngster was said to be “overwhelmed” by the response to which started as a hobby in his bedroom.
He told the Sunday Independent: “I fell in love with a single called ‘Bounce’ that my dad had on a CD and started listening to it over and over, and watching tutorials on YouTube about how to MC.
My friend in school had a recording mic and we started uploading videos and suddenly the whole thing blew up.
It just went viral
For now, MC Lynchy is freestyling about what he sees in Limerick and hoping to get a recording studio in the coming weeks.
He still attends Clements School in the city and joked about living in the country and that rapping about living out there would not get him far.
As he goes to school in the city, he is wise enough to take note what goes about there.
He said, “A lot of people who grow up in the city come across drugs so I have touched on that.
But there’s the nice side of things that I rap about too.”
This nice side happens to be fair and good-looking girls.
And unlike the real Slim Shady, MC Lynchy wants to avoid anything that will upset his peers and that he will not rap anything that would offend people.
