You didn't think that after three weeks of no Audio File Fridays I'd leave you guys without a bonus track to make up for some of that time did you?
This week's Audio File Friday Bonus Track comes to us courtesy of indie rapper E-Dubble, who first caught my attention in 2010 when he did a little something called Freestyle Friday.
Gee...sure does sound familiar Every week for fifty-two weeks straight E-Dubble released a brand new song for his fans, totally free, and usually with some entertaining outros. No small feat. One of those songs just so happens to be one that gamers might enjoy.
Oh and he's super hot. Bear-cub fans, get in line!
The seven foot tall, yes you read that right, E-Dubble is based out of Baltimore, and when not cheering on the Ravens or shopping for large shoes he spends most of his time reciting some of the smartest lyrics in the hip-hop game. This guy's vocabulary alone is enough to astound most anyone but add to that the ability to put all of those big words together in rap-form?
Well, you end up with something like this:
Okay, okay so maybe the song doesn't come off as the most supportive of arcades...rather using them as a metaphor for not fully living one's life, but don't think for a second that E-Dubble is nerd-phobic in the least. His impressive fifty-two week song marathon featured the most clever samples of the nerdiest variety, so I think his geek-cred is solid.
In addition to having some of the smartest lyrics in the hip-hip game, he also has some of the cleanest. Don't misconstrue that to mean he's some watered down rapper for the kids, far from it, rather E-Dubble proves refreshing in that he forgoes the standard offensive language commonly associated with mainstream hip-hop for much more substantial content. If you're curious but weary of the genre
I have a few specific commenters in mind then the indie hip-hop world is the place for you, and E-Dub is a great person to start with. Did I mention how hot he is? Or his height? I did? Okay.
E-Dubble has one full length album, the aptly titled Hip-Hop is Good which you can purchase on iTunes, Amazon, Napster, and eMusic. All of his music including every single Freestyle Friday track, collected as the Written Thursday Mixtape, can be listened to and then downloaded from his official website.
That wraps it up for this week! I'll catch you all next Friday.
