Ecsentric has left another mark on Brooklyn’s map of Hip Hop artists with “Alibis”

 

As an up and coming Hip Hop artist in Brooklyn, NYC, Ecsentric has some serious competition, but his latest release “Alibis” makes it all too evident that he’s on the way to the top with his fresh new sound which vibes with plenty of old school elements.

Under the influence of J. Cole, Nas, Logic and Kendrick Lamar, Ecsentric’s sound boasts that shimmeringly alluring Jazzy tone, although the dreamy reverb in Alibis takes the production to new hypnotic heights. As for the lyrics, they’re candidly exposing enough to draw a tear from you as you lose yourself in the evocative narrative of loss and betrayal.

The instrumentals may be light and melodic in Alibis, but don’t be surprised if it leaves you with a few emotional bruises.

Shan – Ghost: Evocatively Dynamic Hip Hop

NYC-based Hip Hop artist T. Shan’s latest single “Ghost” is a track which instantly commands attention. From the first verse, you’re locked into the fluidity of the beats alongside the pure emotion which has been poured into the evocatively fresh mix.

The grind may be soft and smooth, but you’d be hard-pressed to find more arrestive rhythms from an up and coming Hip Hop artist. T. Shan has stamped down their signature reflective style once more with Ghost which infuses elements of RnB to amplify the sonorous edge to their sound which is sure to see them go far.

While Ghost is undeniably a track with plenty of contemporary appeal, they’ve also been incredibly mindful to make the mix accessible to fans of OS Hip Hop who appreciate pure unadulterated lyrical conviction.

You can check out T. Shan’s latest single Ghost for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
