Nostalgia Ultra :: Emcee Eats And Company Release ‘Lakshmi’s Lament’

a2305514170_10

Over the past decade, Emcee Eats has been realizing a musical vision in the form of Lakshmi’s Lament.  During this time, it seems that Emcee Eats has been exploring the divide between his inherently abstract approach to hip-hop versus the ‘fundamental’ and more traditional styles, especially in light of one of the most forward-pushing eras in terms of hip-hop style, influence and popularity.  With the help of several producers (SK the GreatestAdam Hilton and Alex Balentine), lyrical assists from StormShadow and Black DaVinci, and an artistic collaboration with Bryan DeLaGarza, plus a Sat Nam by Kate Balderas, it feels like Eats has created an instant classic.  I’ve always been a fan of his work, but the growth and maturity shown in this project is purely unrivaled in terms of Austin artists.  If you need a bit of inspiration or spiritual healing, check out this project, and spread it around so others can do the same.

Harmonious Hues :: Emcee Eats And Friends Form ‘Dissolution’

artworks-000593864910-h35l22-t500x500

Emcee Eats was far and away one of my favorite avante garde, abstract artists in the central Texas area for years, but these days, he’s going for a more nostalgic sound, and I’m 100% on board for that as well.  His latest track, Dissolution, is a collaboration with singer Adam Hilton constructed on top of a monstrously soulful beat from master producer SK the Greatest.  Eats and Hilton help stack soul on soul, spilling their hearts out on this heartfelt track.  Definitely check it out, leave a comment and/or a like, and share it around so others can do the same!

Dedication Raps :: Emcee Eats, STORMSHADOW & SK The Greatest Drop Video for ‘Gayatri Shakur’

Gayatri Shakur was the jam when I first posted about it, so it brings me great joy to announce that Emcee Eats and STORMSHADOW decided to lace us with a visual element for this jam.  Not only did these guys make a great looking video (both in terms of production value and location), but the approach matches the lyrical energy perfectly… meditations on self in the midst of real world interaction.  While that may not be the message of the track (or even their intent), I picked up that vibe heavily from the track/video combination, and it makes me that much happier to share it with all of you.  Check it out, leave a like and a comment, and share it around so others can do the same!

Flowing Vessels :: Emcee Eats Recruits StormShadow And SK The Greatest For ‘Gayatri Shakur’

If you want bars with depth and inspirational content, look no further than Emcee Eats and the company he keeps.  He recently enlisted fellow enlightened MCs StormShadow and SK the Greatest, and over an SK production, the trio has created Gayatri Shakur, a song that my words cannot serve proper justice for.  The best thing I can say about this track is that it is sure shot listen material, and will soon become a member of my DJ set regular rotations.  Dig this one and dig it good.

Standard Issue :: Kilmatik Keeps The Culture Going With ‘Regular 2’

a2732089798_10

Kilmatik continues his efforts to push left of center into the norm.  Regular 2 finds our host spitting the same off-kilter on-point bars that he’s known for, and this time, he’s brought a wrecking crew of collaborators to the table.  With guest verses from Click-ClackEmcee EatsRobbie AnalogMad OneTone of the CosmosCooley FlyApasoRuler Why and Norman Ba$e, it’s no surprise that the album holds the listener from track to track in terms of variety and wordplay.  Production assistance is provided from Markie TeeHADES, and White Jamal (plus a Kilmatik track for good measure).  This is definitely more moves in the right directions from a man continuing to make a name for himself.

Family Ties :: Emcee Eats Drops Knowledge On ‘Connect To Kin’

Screenshot_1

It’s another one from Emcee Eats, and this time he’s taken a classic underground beat (props if you can name it) and repurposed it into a tale about understanding the power of lineage.  Connect to kin is a call for listeners to embrace the fact that blood is thicker than water, and to make sure that time is spent with those that should matter most to you.  With the holidays rapidly approaching, that’s a message we should all take to heart, so props on Emcee Eats for addressing it with the urgency needed.

Jazzlife Renaissance :: Emcee Eats Presents ‘Lakshmi’

One of my alltime favorite central Texas creative minds is emcee eats, hands down.  Dude is an amazing painter and an unparalleled wordsmith.  Whenever he drops new music, it’s all hands on deck, as it deserves attention each and every time.  His latest single and video, Lakshmi, wonderfully captures the emcee eats vibe.. it’s DIY, yet it’s oozing creativity and ideas on a much higher level.  Wonderful imagery over a solid song.. that’s all we can really ask for.  This one is supposedly going to see the light of day on an upcoming collaborative mixtape with StormShadow titled Rare Ingredients, so we should all be on the lookout for that future dopeness.
