Erk Tha Jerk is not your every day, ordinary rap artist. In an era where the majority of artists are all sounding the same, looking the same, and doing the same things, Erk stands out as a real one of a kind artist. At first glance, you would not assume that Erk was a rapper/producer/songwriter, but with his trademark glasses, wit, and laid back persona, he brings something that your average music... listener can embrace and relate to. He explains, "Being myself is a must. That's the kind of music I make. Real sh*t. I don't feel the same everyday. Some days I'm on my get money sh*t, then the next I'm on my chill at home sh*t. I just make sure everybody can relate."
On Therapy at 3, two critically acclaimed artists join forces: Eligh of Living Legends (also of Grouch & Eligh) and Amp Live of Zion I. Both Amp and Eligh are legends of hip hop in their own right in the production and vocal side of things, and this record brings together the best of both artists. Futuristic production, signature rapping from Eligh, and forwarding thinking musicality make this a beast to never forget!
