Edo G & Street Wyze - Afterwords

EDO. G is back in 2015 with a new project entirely produced by Street Wyze, the newly signed duet of beatmakers on EFFISCIENZ.

On the RAP side, as Boston’s most iconic rapper, EDO. G evolves on the tracks with his distinctive flow and a kind tone of voice.
Even though this album might seem concise, it remains wide when it comes to the various themes broached. Sometimes deep sound like on G-Lo ( R.I.P. ), sometimes more personal on Sorta Way but always penetrating, EDO has that capacity to touch the audience emotionally by the diversity of his lyrics or every simple nuance of his voice.

On the production side, Street Wyze is delivering massive beats which provide a perfect platform to the Boston rapper to express himself and give shape to his writings. Ingenious use of samples, kicks and hi-hats, everything is gathered to bring the listeners to an headnodic state all along the project. Hard-hitting beats, catchy melodies, and an always Real Hip-Hop sound perfectly tuned to the emcee so that you finally attend a perfect combination of skills.

As for the guests, EDO. G teamed with long time accomplices Reks, Jaysaun and also with the new Boston scene represented by G.Dot & Born. Fans who are familiar with our releases will also recognize some pioneers and close rappers of the EFFISCIENZ label with Dirt Platoon, Fel Sweetenberg, Union Blak, Starvin B and Nutso. Dj Djaz and Dj Netik are also part of the event and deliver some mind blowing scratches on several tracks.

In short, this little masterpiece will be out June 19 in digital, CD and colored vinyl in a limited edition of 500 copies. In two words : BE PREPARED !

Check out the tracklist after the jump.

Kool Keith, Inspectah Deck and Headkrack come together on “Black Men (unarmed) to let their voices be heard on very pressing issues in American society today: The excessive force practiced by police officers that has resulted in the deaths of several African-American males. The three MCs question whether America is really, as sung in the chorus, “The Land of Freedom”, while encouraging listeners to examine the facts behind these fatal incidents and embark on a quest for justice:

“We just used the pen to express our feelings about the police brutality against Blacks that go way before there was color TVs. You would think cops would chill now that cameras are everywhere, but it’s like they’re auditioning for ‘NYPD Blue’ or ‘New York Undercover.’ They don’t give a fuck. Shit gotta stop.” – Kool Keith
