Los Angeles (by way of Greensboro NC) emcee ethemadassassin releases his new Soul on Fire album on 17th September, the third solo LP from one half of the Veteran Assassins duo.
Coming up through NC's rap battle scene during the Golden Era, the new single "80's & 90's" produced by UK beatsmith Sci Fi Stu speaks on these days. Anyone familiar with the sights and sounds of the time will recognize the fashions name-checked and lifestyle represented throughout.
Described in a recent album review "fired up by a dope reminiscing beat, the dreamy backdrop empowers Ethemadassassin to throwback to times gone by with inspiring effect" , the single is one for the Tru Skool heads through the generations.
The single was premiered by the UK's HHK Mag who also published an exclusive interview with E speaking on starting out in hip hop's Golden Era, the impact of the internet for artists, performing shows with Immortal Technique & Wu Tang and more
