Audio: El Gant - "Iron Eagle" *1st leak off Rule By Secrecy
Looks like the wild blue yonder just got wilder. On "Iron Eagle", don't expect the sound of Colonel Charles 'Chappy' Sinclair and Doug Masters to break any speed barriers in F-14 Tomcats, but do expect mic veteran El Gant to rip through 16s over J. Blanc's guitar riff-sampled production. For good measure, throw in Sam Kinison vocal snippets for a hook and you got yourself a ditty (yah, he's "dissin'" rappers, but please people, it's the 'iron-y' wherein lies the humor).
Stay tuned for El Gant's forthcoming mixtape Rule By Secrecy which drops next Thursday (12/1), courtesy of the good people at DJBooth.net. RBS includes guest appearances from Tek, FT, Kool Keith, J57, S-Dub (Shabaam Sahdeeq), Bekay, Deejay Element and more. Producers tapped include Deejay Iron, J. Blanc, The Beatnuts & Kutmasta Kurt among others.
With only one week until the November 30th release of hasHBrown's new album, Break Something, the Houston-based rapper/producer stays busy, giving fans yet another single from the project. In the past weeks, hasH has released the video for "Heaven," not to mention his collaboration with Detroit's Guilty Simpson on the song "Break The Chain," and now, hasH is excited to unveil his latest single, "This Is It," which also features singer Dannie Walker on the chorus.
"The main inspiration was going out on the town and knowing that at this 'one spot' you were going to hear good music, no matter what," explains hasHBrown. "Some venues and events are known for their nightlife party atmosphere but what draws me in to going out to a bar or lounge is if I know that I'm going to hear dope music while I party." And in telling his story, hasH keeps things creative with a feel good track, one that maybe extends a little beyond his core audience, but also one that allows the up-and-coming do-it-all to avoid having his music put into a box.
