El Gant (@elgant) – Raw (Produced by @42Keez) (2015)

Are you really ready to deal with the KAMALA General? EL Gant will melt your face off.

An uzi’s firing rate is precisely six hundred rounds per minute. Neither one of us are counting bars, but El Gant’s presentation here over 42 Keez’s canvas could very well be the closest representation of a lyrical uzi in 2015. “Raw”, the lead single off his upcoming Spray Music EP, cosigns itself that Gant’s emceeing abilities have been doing pushups since the acclaimed 2014 release of Beast Academy. With 42 Keez’s Chicago-driven soundscape and a universally accepted and respectable rhyme display, the single attests to mainstream potentiality and sits well on the current, in listeners of 2015. In opposition, don’t get the potential screwed up. Gant is always building with and in the lab with veteran emcees and true schoolers, alongside successful solo strives and his IV League posse (Ras Kass, Shabaam Sahdeeq, El Da Sensei and more). Get your pen or touch screen out and be prepared to mark your calender for the EP; trust is a must – enjoy.

In a recent exchangement of dialogue with RESPECT. Magazine’s Dread Solo he was asked about breath control. Gant responds, “I moved into an oxygen chamber three stories under the earth”. This sums up the admirable aesthetics of “Raw”.

El Gant (feat. GGDT) – “Five One Eight” (Official Video) @ElGant

To the residents of Albany, New York, 518 is more than just a number. For some, the three digit code is their community and the place in which they call home. Braggadocios rhymes and 40s aside, “Five One Eight” is a throwback to El Gant’s humble beginnings at Suny Albany, where he mastered his craft with the pen and pad, more so outside the classroom. As El Gant and Giant Gorilla Dog Thing (GGDT) get busy over this JOAT (Jack of all Trades) produced banger, they give us an insight into the good and the bad of their upbringings. With shots of Albany scattered throughout the video, it’s impossible not to get that feeling of nostalgia for your own hood. “Five One Eight” will be featured on El Gant’s upcoming LP, ‘Beast Academy,’ which becomes available via CD and digital download on June 10th.
