Elcamino x Chase Fetti Release Collaborative EP ‘Bethlehem’ & New “Josh Allen” Video

The survivor of a tumultuous upbringing and various stints in jail, Elcamino creates art that is adjacent to the life he has led, survived and as he evolves—strives to leave behind. 

Elcamino’s versatility sets him apart from his peers.  Lyrically, he is capable of painting bleak tales and violent escapades, but also deft at seamlessly shifting styles mid-verse to highlight his soulful and moody singing voice.  Both of these attributes create exhilarating musical highs. 

The last two-years have both been extremely trying for Elcamino from a personal perspective, as he has had to persevere and deal with significant loss, as both his younger sister and brother passed away.  Weathering that trauma has helped shape a new outlook on his life, and music.

Camino’s new project, Bethlehem, with rising spitta Chase Fetti is now available at all DSP’s.  In addition, the duo also released a new visual for the EP’s lead single, “Josh Allen.”

“Sink Or Swim” – Madhattan (Album)

Manhattan MC Madhattan recently dropped his latest project “Sink Or Swim.” Over flawless production largely by IceRocks, Madhattan reminisces on his upbringing in the city, what he had to do to get by and describes his daily life in the Rotten Apple today with precise lyricism and wit. To sink or swim means to fail or succeed entirely by one’s own efforts, and as Madhattan explains on the intro, Manhattan is entirely surrounded by water, and to not just survive the Gotham City but succeed, it builds layers of character not everyone can endure. 

The track “Dirty White Boy” finds Madhattan reminiscing on the dirt he did to get by over a hypnotic, drum heavy beat crafted by Trumentillz. Tracks like “Canal Street,” “Stoop Situations” and probably my favorite track on the album “Pavement” precisely describe life in the concrete jungle of New York City through Mad’s perspective. Shoutout to IceRocks by the way, as usual he provided a gritty yet soulful boom bap soundscape throughout much of this album that Madhattan floats over.

Now,” which is produced by NV, is another standout track on the project, soon followed by the ElCamino assisted “No Shorts.” If you’re a fan of reality rap and lyrical story-telling street Hip Hop you will not be disappointed. Hattan paints a picture throughout this highly personal project.

When asked about the project, Madhattan stated “This shit really was like giving a piece of me to the people. I’m just happy it’s in the world and I hope people listen.”

I highly recommend you do. Stream “Sink Or Swim” below, and on all DSPs.

Elcamino & 38 Spesh – “Sacred Psalms” (EP Review)

Elcamino is a 26 year old MC from Buffalo, New York who blew up in late 2017 when he dropped his self-titled EP with Griselda Records. This was followed up by his Walking on Water mixtape in the summer of 2018 along with dropped 2 studio albums & a few EPs last year. He just dropped an dope EP produced by 38 Spesh back in February called Martyr’s Prayer & now as we start the 4th quarter of the year, he & Spesh are back for another one.

The opener “Hammers on the Hip” talks about being strapped over a glistening instrumental whereas “The Avenue” horrendously sings about what it’s like on his block over a slow, dreary beat. The track “Hold U Up” continues to sing poorly (this time on some gang shit) over a gloomy instrumental while the song “Don’t Know” hops back on the rapping tip to boast over a slick beat.

The track “Hustle Like Me” talks about his grind over a woodwind-infused instrumental while the song “What I Be On” talks about being rich over a boom bap beat with some synth-horns. The penultimate track “Camino Season” talks about taking over the rap game over an instrumental with a funky bass-line & some synth-chords whereas the outro is a decent remix to “If You Want It” off the Trust Army’s sophomore album Army of Trust II.

I prefer Martyr’s Prayer of the 2, but this is still a solid effort nonetheless. 38 Spesh comes through with consistent production once again & Camino sounds like he took his time on it in contrast to a some of his latest material.

Score: 7/10

Elcamino & 38 Spesh – “Martyr’s Prayer” (EP Review)

This is the brand new EP from Buffalo, New York emcee Elcamino. First time I listened to him was in November 2017 when he dropped his self-titled EP with Griselda Records. This was followed up by his Walking on Water mixtape in the summer of 2018 & last year alone, he put out 2 studio albums & a few EPs. However to ring in the new year, he’s dropping off the 38 Spesh-produced Martyr’s Prayer.

After the titular intro, the first song “Legal Money” shows off his riches over a spooky instrumental whereas “Flowers” finds Camino aspiring to be respected while he’s alive over a calming beat. The track “Street Signs” talks about how he would’ve died for his block over a boom bap beat & after the “Martyr’s Speech” skit, the song “Young Lordz” talks about coming a long way from the hood over a blissful boom bap beat. The track “Get Hi Too” is a short yet effective stoner anthem with a mellow instrumental & before the outro, the final song “2K20” with Che Noir sees the 2 flexing over an impeccable BADBADNOTGOOD sample.

Compared to Elcamino’s last 2 projects that he dropped this past fall, this is a big step-up. I feel like it could’ve been more fleshed out since every single cut is under 3 minutes but nonetheless, Spesh cooks up some of his best production & the pen-game has improved also. Looking forward to see what else he does this year.

Score: 8/10
