Indestructible- Solid debut from upcoming emcee ESP (Western, Mass)

The upcoming emcee, ESP, who recently released his debut “Weapon of Mass Production” has caused a heavy local buzz within the 413/508 area code of Massachusetts. Not many artists have the opportunity to fulfill their dreams in making an actual debut, completely independently and also be able to sell their first ever release- AND have the album sell well locally. Many claimed to be “rappers” release free mixtape after free mixtape to gain a fan-base; but ESP already had the support from his family & friends and has been doing shows within the Western Mass area for awhile now.

The hardworking artists juggling work, school and a serious girlfriend- already had a tight schedule- but he put aside the time to lay down the rhymes and surely showed & proved within his first debut. With producers from the area such as Sleepquil, Busted Fuse (Worcester, MA), Key Soul, and Toronto’s own Fresh Kils. The future all-star producers do an excellent job in producing a heavily classic eastcoast underground sound throughout the whole album. ESP laces the productions up with his specialty of dope, lyrical, conscience lyrics. From tales of friends that betrayed him (“Judas”), discovering yourself well growing up (“Nothing Makes Sense”), friends caught up in addiction & hustling (“Tundra”) to women that tore him apart then finally finding the love of his life (“Life’s ill”, “Patience”) to the creative and entertaining track “What if I Did” which ESP narrates his true inner feelings about the “pest” in his life and what would happen if he acted out on them. “Weapon of Mass Production” creates a solid hip-hop debut and surely changes the 413 rap/hip-hop scene to have an artist as dedicated, motivated and determined as ESP. We feel that there is honestly a bright future for the emcee and that future projects will expose more in-depth on who ESP is and further push the limits of underground hip-hop.

Be sure to support the upcoming-star emcee and purchase his album on iTunes. Also stay up to date with ESP and be sure to like his facebook page here:   https://www.facebook.com/WeaponESP

Upcoming Burlington Emcee & Producer, CAL, Interview Hosted By: P-Rice

 

Now a Junior at University of Vermont, Callan Clarke AKA CAL, has been making music throughout his whole childhood and is now in the works of producing and releasing his debut “3”- with plans to take his solo career into flight and shine as another emcee on the mic. Myself, P-Rice, was able to catch up with the inspiring emcee and deliver you all the details of the un-known gem who plans to be making his rounds in hip-hop music.

Interview was done: 1/6/2014

Questions asked by P-Rice:

P-Rice: For those that don’t know who you are, introduce yourself & where you’ve derived your stage name from…

Cal: Hey peoples, my name’s Callan Roberts, but you can call me CAL.  I’ve always gone by Callan my whole life, but always thought of going by Cal.  This just seemed like the moment to finally try that out.  Hopefully people will be able to pronounce/spell my name now.

P-Rice: Where did you grow up?

Cal: I grew up for my first 11 in Georgia in kinda upper middle class neighborhoods, then moved to Vermont and have lived here since, hopping around towns all in the state.  Been in Burlington a while and it’s kinda my home base at this point.

P-Rice: At what age did you get into hip-hop music?

Cal: I got into it when I was 11.  All my classmates were really into hip-hop and frankly the only music I’d ever been into was what my sister and mom played.  So lots of Barenaked Ladies and Good Charlotte.  They showed me Eminem, 50, Lil’ Jon, Snoop, and all of those guys who were big in 2003 or so.  So even though doing rap is newer to me I’ve always been into hip-hop.

Real Hip-Hop Lives On in the Underground

“Hip-Hop is Dead’ is the thought of many veteran and even young hip-hop listeners. The club and poppy dance beats have taking over the hot rap/hip-hop charts, aimlessly repetitive hustling anthems replayed on your local major hip-hop station. It seems like the odds could be true that one of the most unique, expressive yet controversial genres of music is pronounced dead from what the eye can see; but take your ear down to the underground and you will experience for yourself the real sound of hip-hop is well alive..and actively doing well.

Up and coming inspiring emcee, Shane Presutti AKA E.S.P, has networked his way to some of the dopest upcoming names in the underground for hip-hop such as Kev Soul (producer), Fresh Kilz (Canadian producer) and Sleepqyuil (Producer/Emcee) in anticipation for his debut release “Weapon of Mass Production”. P-Rice was able to have E.S.P on his show to discuss about his upcoming debut, his come up in the music, thoughts on the industry & the come back of real hip-hop, future plans and much more ! Tune into the video, Part II can be found under our videos on YouTube as well.

P-Rice’s posse came through with anticipation to see a “Live on Air Rap Battle” but P-Rice’s opponent entitled “No Show Smo Jo” obviously by the name you can tell…became a no show..but the posse wasn’t going to have P-Rice do a show without a freestyle or two.
