In hip-hop as in most other pursuits, a whole lotta Paid Dues stand between a novice hustler and the success of which he or she has dreamed. Esohel, for one, knows the importance of playing by the rules when you’re starting out. Now, however, the Midwestern spitter’s ready to kick back and enjoy the fruits of that backbreaking labor. The artist’s second featured cut (his debut, Pushin, dropped way back in August of ‘09) and latest single finds him dispensing a few hard-won pearls of wisdom to rap greenhorns. Joining him over project collaborator Ricky Dubs’ beat, sampled from Baby Huey funk/soul classic Hard Times, Brooklyn buzzmaker Nitty Scott, MC offers a few pointers of her own on the back end. Feeling it? This head-noddable ode to the hustle is just the beginning of the quality material in store on On Purpose With a Purpose, which has yet to receive a solid drop date.
