Hudson County, NJ - South Bronx, NY: “When they ask why you are groaning, tell them, ‘I groan because of the terrifying news I have heard. When it comes true, the boldest heart will melt with fear; all strength will disappear. Every spirit will faint; strong knees will become as weak as water. And the Sovereign Lord says: It is coming! It’s on its way!’” [Ezekiel 21:7]
When it comes to the gritty underground of Christian rap, YP aka Young Paul and Selah The Corner are two monsters that are unavoidable. Lyrically they punch with a force that many assumed no longer existed in today’s world of hip hop. But the east coast duo shows the genre that real spitters haven’t left the game. Yes, the sun rises in the east, but there’s no reason to fear the night. Not when you navigate in power and in truth.
Eerie Howl finds YP and Selah collaborating over production by It’s Knuckleup. The record is a sonic reminder that light does not run from the darkness, instead it has dominion over the unseen. From the moment the beat drops, it is clear where the allegiance of these artists resides. They are facing giants and defending the honor of their King.
If you are a fan of hard-hitting boom bap and perfectly selected samples, maybe even the occasional thriller flick, then Eerie Howl is going to be the latest addition to your personal playlist.
“Do or die for the Lord we ride / On the east when we active in the streets in means we outside / Every knee bowed paying homage / If you rather be a gremlin with the demons then you stay in bondage”
