new-day-email-image

New track from my forthcoming EP length mixtape where I’m going in over Madlib beats. The 2nd from said project. Expect the whole thing to drop around the end of spring/beginning of summer. I start out writing these things with the intent of simply doing some wordplay and shit talking and while I do plenty of that, so far these “freestyles” have been peppered with an unintended self reflection. I keep taking stock of my personal relationship with Hip Hop. It’s kind of interesting.

New Music: E Major – 2 Real

2-real

E Major is back with a new freestyle! Entitled “2 Real” is finds him freestyling over Madlib and Freddie Gibbs’ “Real” instrumental from their Piñata album. Starting out aggressively then switching to a more reflective tone once the beat changes, E Major is laying it all out in this freestyle. But is it TOO real?

Keep an eye out for E Major’s EP length mixtape over Madlib instrumentals coming later this spring.

New Music: E Major – “I Gets the Paper”

I Gets the Paper

So I was working on my Red Bull Music Academy application last night and I was going through tracks and I came across this joint. It’s old and at the time I didn’t feel like it lived up to the work I was doing, but when I listen to it now I don’t think it’s so bad. So I figured why not throw it out there. What do you all think?

New Video: E Major – Secrets

I submitted for HitRecord’s Freestyle Something. The topic they chose for this beat was “secrets.” I chose to focus on some current issues and to dissect the difference between a lie and a secret.
