I was kinda holding on to this cut a little longer than necessary just to keep shining some light on Eastkoast and Phalo Pantoja’s project, Merciless Beauty. That album is out now and it something beautiful to behold. It’s lyricism that you can sink your teeth into and music that you can vibe to. It’s perfect synergy. Where Eva Ya From is indicative of the greater movement.
Eastkoast has more than a couple things going for him when it comes to making music, but perhaps the most important is that, he is unique. His raspy voice is not something you are going to come across too often when listening to hip hop. But he also blends his delivery with creative wordplay and intellect making him a potent force. And with him rocking over this smooth Phalo Pantoja beat, it’s nothing short of immaculate.
Mark April 8th down on your calendar, as that is when Merciless Beauty, their collaborative project drops.
