First off I just want to co-sign the Rat Rac cover art.  In a day and age where hip-hop is going back to the 8o’s I feel like they should maybe look to the 50′s for inspiration.  That Motown Doo-Wop Detriot sound.  Anyway here is Harlem’s own Esso with his newest offering, Lifestyles Of The Young & Ignorant.

Edit:  I didn’t like how I worded a lot of my initial review.  I enjoyed the EP, but I feel like Esso has a long road ahead of him.  I don’t think hip-hop has ever been as competitive, and the question is how do you distinguish yourself from every other rapper. I guess what I’m saying is Esso needs to work on his presence.  That being said I encourage everyone to check him out and judge for yourself.
