Slaine delivers the video single for the Leedz Edutainment project, Eastern Standard. We are all looking for a source of power, and Slaine takes us through a multitude of options all of which are internal, and not the illusory visions of power that are forced upon us.
I am not sure if I even remember the original. I will have to go back and check for it in my iTunes. But what I do know for sure, is that this track is a beautiful piece of work. It’s easily one of the top five tracks I have heard from Rite Hook. C-Lance really gave this track a ton of character with this joint. Definitely one of those songs that will stick in your head (like so many Rite Hook songs do when you listen to them). The new album, From The Wrong, drops in a couple of weeks. Be ready.
I awoke this morning to Leedz putting it in the air via Twitter that eight of the albums/mixtapes put out on his label were being offered free. I am assuming this is a recent development, though I could certainly be wrong. I know I paid good money for them and now you can DL some of them without spending a dime. These releases are chocked full of dope beats and raw lyricism. You are going to find something among the collection that you will love. Heck, I love most of them. My favorites of the bunch are Rite Hook’s E.ye A.ssume D.amage and the Write Off Mixtapes Vol.1 and 2. You will see tons of guest shots on these releases, including Slaine, Amadeus The Stampede, Reef The Lost Cause, J The S, Ill Bill and many more. I realize this is not an ‘artist’ discography so to speak but I wouldn’t sleep on this collection if I were you! Also, make sure you remember to drop some dollars on one of these artist’s shows or retail products if you like what you hear. It’s essential to contribute financially when capable. Meanwhile, enjoy….
You can click the cover of the particular album you wanted to check out and be linked to the Bandcamp site where you can stream the music to see if it’s for you, but for my part it is a no brainer: Pick them all up!
