I’m old enough to not be aware of Merkules – here’s his bio – “The 2017 Western Canadian Music Award nominated rapper Merkules’ music videos have over 15,000,000 views on YouTube, and his music has had over 5,000,000 plays on Spotify. In addition Merkules has independently sold over 10,000 copies of his 3 full-length albums, the most recent debuting at #2 on the main iTunes chart across all genres in Canada. Merkules has rocked over 500 high energy performances across North America and Europe, and isn’t going to slow down anytime soon. His raw talent, wit, and genuine humbleness has captivated a fan base that is growing by the thousands every day.

And here’s a video he’s made about Conor McGregor. Thanks to the musically savvy Ben Farrelly for drawing this to our attention.
