Eliquate - Elliot Is Untitled
Rappers may not be able to fly or fight pirates like Peter Pan, but many of them do seem to live in a perpetual adolescence. Which isn’t to say that’s a bad thing; on the latest single off the five-piece band’s latest compilation album, Eliquate MC Elliot Wright wears his refusal to grow up as a badge of honor, rather than a mark of of shame. A Booth-exclusive world premiere, this joint finds the Santa Cruz rhymesayer and crew celebrating the perks of arrested development in brash, defiant verses. Snack One mans the boards, with help from co-producers Chance Random and Cosmo Stephens, complementing the frontman’s feverish flows with driving percussion and sporadic brass notes. In Michael Daniels‘s official visuals, Wright dons a tricorn hat and military uniform to put on a one-man Revolutionary War re-enactment.
