Being behind the scenes of the music game is cool, but if anyone in that position tells you they haven’t fantasized about what it would be like to be in the limelight, they would be lying. Few actually make that jump, but songwriter Eskeerdo, who has worked with some of the game’s best (He co-wrote Clique with Kanye), takes a leap of faith on Devils Work, which is centered around a beat of epic, Game of Thrones proportions. As Xplicit‘s beat, sampled from a Ruben Haze remix of the Miike Snow original, cracks like thunder, Eskeerdo’s fiery, emboldened flow shoots like lightning—the perfect delivery method for his hungry, grind-oriented bars. If you’re craving more of Eskeerdo’s goosebump-inducing brand of hip-hop, be sure to keep an ear out for his self-titled EP, scheduled for release this April.
