It’s sure been a minute since the homie El Gant graced our pages here and he sure made up for this with the head-bopper ‘Five One Eight’ which is off his upcoming project Beast Academy. The track in question was laced by JOAT aka Jack Of All Trades who will be producing the entire LP. Judging from what I heard, expect nothing but that raw uncut from both parties.
Though his last feature came in July of 2013 (with “I Love Me“), El Gant has not lost a step; like, at all. On “Five One Eight,” Gant rips into the beat with a spry, cutting flow that is the perfect delivery method for his brash, crudely witty lyrics. Joining him atop the brisk, cut-laden beat from JOAT is GGDT, who displays a similarly hard-hitting approach. Their flows are perfectly matched to the record’s aggressive tone. It all adds up to a cut that grabs you and doesn’t let go.
Beast Academy which becomes available on CD and digital download on June 10th of this year, is produced entirely by JOAT (Jack Of All Trades) and includes guest appearances from Chris Webby, Ill Bill, Torae, El Da Sensei, Infinity Gauntlet, and more.. stay tuned!
