Inglewood resident and Baltimore native, E Major returns with a dope self-directed music video for “Answers,” the latest from his EP/mixtape Konduct da Invazion which features E Major rhyming over Madlib instrumentals. “Answers” utilizes the instrumental from Lootpack’s classic with teh same name and builds on it with cuts by another Maryland resident DJ Mad One who is also featured in the video.

The video plays with some of the lyrics E Major spits and finds he and Mad One trying to collect a ransom for a state senator as E Major makes calls and a ransom note, and Mad One drives the aforementioned senator to a destinations unknown.

New Music: E Major – New Day

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. But it’s like I say in this particular track “I guess I use it just to ask questions/ to take out my aggression and to bask in my obsessions.”

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 PiƱata album.

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?
