Kieran said one track called ‘Donny Rap’ focusing on the drug problem in Doncaster had been supported by Toddla T on BBC Radio 1

The duo’s music videos are all shot in the town and they are hoping their work will have a positive impact on the youth in the town.

Kieran said “We make sure to use recognisable local locations for our videos and artwork and are really starting to see our hometown get behind what we are doing.”
