For denizens of inner-city areas devastated by poverty and violence, Hope is a rare commodity. On his latest single and debut feature, North Carolina rhymesayer Eddy B. (formerly one-half of a duo with beatsmith Tim Gunter) gives listeners a taste of what it’s like to live every day praying that a stray bullet doesn’t have your name on it. Nu Vintage‘s gritty, yet soulful sample work backs the emcee as he rhymes about the experience of finding family members—including his own brother—dead in the streets, and wondering if he could be next. This harrowing single is part of forthcoming street album HopeLess Act, scheduled for release this April. In the meantime, fans can click here to peep this record’s official video, directed by Lex Kimbrough.
