E. Daney is an unsigned artist from Harlem, NY. There's two tracks of his on offer for you today;

"Turn It Up" has a nice beat of some synth chords, piano keys that come in and some pretty simplistic drum programming which works well with the rest of the track. I have to say that honestly this type of track usually isn't my thing but I was feeling this one. It reminded me a little of Jay-Z's "What We Talkin' Bout?" from The Blueprint 3 and i think this track would work well in the same way, placed at the start of an album.

"Hoodlife" is more downbeat but manages to hit just as hard with a nice catchy hook as E. Daney speaks about his motivation over a beat of piano keys, some strings and once again - pretty simple drum patterns which is a good move here in my opinion as it allows for the verses to take centre stage. My only criticism of this track is that it's perhaps a touch too long weighing in at 4:10 but that doesn't take anything away from the quality of the track which in terms of audio quality, lyrics and music, is very high.

I was very impressed by both tracks and hope to hear more from E. Daney in the near future.

Bringing music back to its essence is the goal of this Harlem native. A tumultuous childhood filled with the harsh realities of the New York streets has given E.Daney the opportunity to create music that takes listeners back to the roots of hip hop. His come up make his music, his lyrics, and his experiences all real. Realizing at an early age that his only way out of the hood was through slinging crack, playing ball, or spitting bars, he has dabbled in all but perfected few, with his eye never wavering from the ultimate prize of success. Leaving his block and the hustling lifestyle behind at age 19 E put his pain and struggles into his game on the basketball court. After playing junior college ball in Kansas he found himself playing Division I for the University of New Orleans; a far cry from his own Harlem block. Life seemed to be coming together and his decision to leave his hustling lifestyle seemed to be paying off until Hurricane Katrina. The storm robbed E not only of almost all of his possessions but more importantly his love of the game. The outlet that he thought he had that would permanently keep him out of the hood seemed to dim. He made his way back to New York as well as back to school, but with a new found plan; music. For the past six years all of his experiences, struggles, and pain have made way for real raw hip hop; something lacking from today's game where everyone seems to sound the same. Having put out 3 mixtapes: Get Money Season I, Get Money Season II hosted by Styles P, and Lyrical Ecstasy his passion for music is evident. His grind and hunt for success isnt only about coming out with a deal- its about touching as many people as possible with his music and realizing a level of success that takes him out of the hood and straight to the top. With his most recent album "My Time," getting ready to drop this February E is ready to take the hip hop game by storm and remind everyone what hip hop is really all about. Take a look and a listen to his life... his music...
