As First in Flight State rhymesayer Eddy B. made clear on his first feature, Hope is a precious commodity in the hood where he came up. Trouble, on the other hand, can be found around every corner. On a newly-released mixtape standout, making its world premiere right here on our front page, the emcee calls out to the Man Upstairs for help, asking whether he sees the, “babies dying, mamas crying and bullets flying,” on the daily. Receiving no answer, he resolves to continue speaking truth and doing what he can to make a difference. Beatsmith Nu Vintage backs the artist’s bars with a mournful, bluesy vocal loop. Fans will be able to find Trouble and many more fresh cuts on Eddy B.‘s DJBooth-hosted HopeLess Act mixtape, set to hit our front page Monday, April 29, for free streaming and download.
