“’Fight’ is a record that when I heard the beat produced by Vanderslice, it reminded me of that hardcore PE Bomb Squad shit,” Edo.G says during an exclusive interview with HipHopDX. “I had to get Chuck on there. As for being blessed enough to Chuck D on my album, it was an honor and then for him to agree to shoot the video was the icing on the cake. I consider Chuck D my big Hip Hop brother. Every time I talk to him, I get smarter.”
In March, Edo.G announced After All These Years, a project released via Red Line Music Distribution, Inc. and the 5th & Union label Edo.G started with Jamieson Grillo. Grillo says that Edo.G has been able to evolve and remain current since debuting in 1991 as the frontman of Ed O.G & Da Bulldogs.
“On this album with meaningful lyrics and hard-edged beats, Edo.G continues to provide a timeless sound, reminiscent to the 1990s Boom Bap that helped establish and mold him into the artist he is today,” Grillo says. “Always reinventing himself and moving forward while staying true to the essence of Hip Hop, Edo.G is like the underdog of Hip Hop. His longevity and track record proves that he is still relevant in today’s ever-so crowded marketplace. His conscious lyrics and authentic Golden Era Hip Hop roots run deep.”
