Mp3 of the Week: Esoteric


A round of applause for Esoteric, one half of Boston indie rap's longest-running tag team: while the rest of the country is still busy trying to Superman that 'ho, Eso's bringing people "to their knees like a fake preacher" with soul honks, bongos, and left-leaning hooks to the body politic. His new solo jawn, Egoclapper, omits 7L, but on this tune he brings along all-state champ Termanology, with whom he celebrates undie rap's hood status as the "gateway drug between skater and thug." (Chris Faraone, what's really good?) Not hipster enough for you? No problem: Eso's got a Gary Numan mash-up mixtape coming too. (OMFG, did dude just breathe on Conor Oberst and G.I. Joe in the same verse?) Grab the track above, then get ready for an Egoclapper launch bonanza impacting October 27 at the Good Life.
