I think it goes without saying that Edan is not just one of the most talented cats in hip-hop, but in all of music. His track and performance records speak for themselves; show me someone else who gets love from DITC and ATP.
So I felt it worthy of a blog post when I heard that he's in Boston tonight, and not just in his DJ capacity, like when I caught him for an interview at Good Life a year ago.
It’s amazing how much hate mail I receive accusing me of ignoring local artists. Most hilarious is this ass on Facebook who recently bitched that I “write about the same people over and over.” He might have a solid point, if in the past year alone I didn’t pay significant attention to: Esoteric, Black Madeen, Bad Rabbits, Singapore Kane, Slaine, Boycott Blues, DJ Slim, JDO, M-Dot, Masspike Miles, D-Tension, The Berklee J Dilla Ensemble, Jaysaun, Will C, Amadeus, Rite Hook, WMS the Sultan, GWOP Gang, Wasted Talent, The Dunnas, Dawaun Parker, RADIx, Mr.
Berklee-schooled Boston rap vet Edan might be second to Doom when it comes to hip-hop reclusivity (new word!). Like Metal Face, he surfaces with infinitely inspired projects whenever the hell he feels like it. A few hundred fans were fortunate enough to dine with Edan this past Thursday at the Good Life, where he previewed his latest project, Echo Party, which drops on Five Day Weekend this November 17.
