Speaking to Dublin Live ahead of his Irish performance, Coolio said:

"I'd love to work with Bono or U2.

"There's some great Irish rap going on at the moment too.

"I love Versatile, and how they keep the accent. Their lyrics sound hot as hell and original because they keep the accent."

Versatile is made up of two Dublin lads, Cas Walsh and Eskimo Supreme. The pair who are known for filling out venues and putting on electric performances are also just after landing themselves in the top spot of the Official Irish Homegrown Top 20.

Their track that scooped them the top spot, Prefontaine, is tipping on 1 million views on YouTube since it dropped last month.
