HipHopDX Premiere – Canadian producer Elaquent is expanding his horizons with his first venture outside of the instrumental beat scene in the form of his next album Forever Is A Pretty Long Time. Ahead of its release, he’s shared another single from the project called “Airwalk” featuring Los Angeles-based rapper Chester Watson.
“I’m fortunate to have a few Hip Hop veterans on my album, but it was important to me to have some fresh faces on the record,” he tells HipHopDX. “I first got hip to Chester after hearing him on my homie fredfades’ album and his monotone delivery makes a cool contrast with the beat.
“My man’s is a problem, and was actually the very first person I reached out to collaborate during the inception of the album.”
