TJ Maestro

Hip Hop // Roscommon

Born in Galway, raised in Roscommon, Irish rapper TJ Maestro is one of the most exciting voices in the Irish hip-hop scene today.

He began his musical journey at the age of 11, writing rhymes in his bedroom which were significantly inspired by hip-hop greats such as Eminem, Nas, 2Pac, and The Notorious B.I.G. For several years, he worked quietly on his craft, eventually sharing his early demo recordings with the world at the age of 16 on SoundCloud. With each passing track, TJ started to steadily gain traction.

His first official release, "2020 Vision", arrived in March 2020, a hard-hitting, trap-influenced banger which shared themes of his ambitions of rising to the top and doing whatever it takes to do so.

"This is TJ's ascension to the heights we've been hoping for. He was always one good track away from breaking into the packed Irish scene and this track could be the one that breaks through the noise." - Thomas Gillespie, EARMILK

In 2023, he released "Said I Would", with D'Inverno Limited., an alternative hip-hop producer from Belgium, which showcased a notable change in Maestro's music sonically. "Said I Would" was featured in highly-renonwed music blogs The Word Is Bond and Blatantly Blunt, and received national radio airplay on Mike Mulvihill's "Power Play" on Shannonside FM.

He has several new releases lined up for 2024 which will undoubtedly excel TJ Maestro as a leading figure in the exciting Irish hip-hop scene going forward.
