Pearl Gates, an eMC/Masta Ace affiliate, and Syll released their EP Play This, which was dropped this week through Below System Records.
The EP is a joint concept project, which features a guided tour of their Washington Heights neighborhood. The first track starts out with a warning for outsiders to be careful before launching into a story of how life can be in the lives of the people who live there. The EP includes narration from hood legend Blanco and beats from the French producer C0rrado. The EP has a total of five tracks on it:
- “Come Find Me”
- “Another Episode” (ft. Wordsworth”)
- “Hold Ya Head”
All the songs on Play This pull the listener in with smooth and driving beats and memorable rhymes that connect to the listener with the emotion that the performers exhibit in each song. The mood can go from active to melancholy in seconds and the familiarity of the game that is evident in the tracks makes the listener feel like they are right there beside them through all of what they are singing about. You can listen to the EP via SoundCloud.
