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-Clack, Emcee Eats, Robbie Analog, Mad One, Tone of the Cosmos, Cooley Fly, Apaso, Ruler 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 Tee, HADES, 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.

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.
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.
Two of my favorite Austin emcees who embrace not giving a damn about convention have teamed up for a dope song, video and shirt. KILMATIK is the brain behind the idea, and Emcee Eats is on the idea assist, as well as running point on the artistic end. The result is more of what Austin hip hop needs… diversity, unique expression, and solid collaboration.
I wouldn’t mind hearing a full length from these cats, maybe even with an album length video or some other additional expression attached to it. Here’s to being dope and not caring what others think.

This project by the incomparable Emcee Eats is a collection of collaborative efforts that took place between 2005 and 2010. Check it out, and support one of the most unique artist you are bound to come across.
My old friend Steve Anderson is taking a large step into the film realm by releasing a short documentary on the one and only Emcee Eats. Take a second to check it out… great work, and so true to the reality of Emcee Eats.
Originality is king… in today’s world, you’ve gotta be multitalented, you’ve gotta do it well, and you’ve gotta go big. Over the years, one member of the Austin area community continues to push (and/or blur) the lines between hip-hop and art, and that man is Emcee Eats.
First, the music. The flow is dope. The beat selection is ill. The content is multi-layered and mandatory of multiple listens, because each listen brings forth new elements. Imagine Busta Rhymes via Jackson Pollack. Descriptions, however, truly cannot do the music justice… only a listen can:
Then, there’s the art… the range and scope of his vision has yet to be quantified. Any object is a blank slate, yet the training and technique of college bring forth works worth hanging in your home. The influences are as vast (in my opinion) as Picasso, yet as recent as Basquiat, or even Stephen Powers. Graf mindstate with gallery aesthetics, and the attitude of an MC. Definitely, a force to be reckoned with.
By the way, Eats is gonna catch wreck on the opening track of the upcoming It/ll Be Better Tomorrow, my new LP. Dig.
