Hip-hop fans have become used to seeing leading US rappers such as Jay-Z and P Diddy launching clothing offshoots like Rocawear and Sean John to help promote their brands and boost their bank accounts.

This month, Irish hip-hop crew The Infomatics make their first foray onto the catwalk as they link up with Fergal Swan and Richard Doody’s streetwear label Counter Propaganda.

All those who purchase T-shirts from Counter Propaganda’s new Kill or Create line (named after the band’s debut album) will receive a free three-track Infomatics CD.

The group help launch the new range with a show at BT2 in Dublin on 14th August, with their new single “Back to Front” going on release the following day.
