Fashawn & Wrekonize Pay Respects To EPMD’s Headbanger & Lyrically Leave Lumps (Audio)
From Warren G, to Tha Dogg Pound, to Beanie Sigel & Memphis Bleek, EPMD made records that made MCs feel compelled to cover throughout the ages. Erick Sermon and Parish Smith remain giants in the lyrical and production circles of Hip-Hop. The duo’s impact (through on-again, off-again status) is galactic, and their songs still win new fans over yearly.
Cris-crossing the country, Fresno, California’s Fashawn and the Miami, Florida-based Wrekonize (¡MAYDAY!) come together on a DJ EFN-touted rendition of “Headbanger.” “Hood Banger” as this one’s known, features the two indie MCs absolutely obliterating the classic sound (K-Solo style), and stunting on their status in the genre.
Fash’, who is officially backed by Nas, joins the Tech N9ne-backed battle veteran Wrek’, and the two make a strong case for more work together, as well as why Erick and Parish Make Dollars being forever classic…
Shouts out to Crazy Hood on the premiere.
