Eric Bellinger places his bid for the highest office in the land with his upcoming mixtape Eric B. For President : Term 1, which he’ll release on September 9th.
Today (Aug 23), he drops the first single “In My Prime” ft. rapper Phil Ade; it’s an R&B and hip-hop-infused track produced by DJ Money and Cleva Keys. On the song, Bellinger and Ade spit their tightly spun verses, and of course, Bellinger’s silky smooth melodies make an appearance.
About the mixtape’s title, Bellinger sought to pay tribute to Eric B & Rakim’s classic song “Eric B. Is President,” citing that the song title “has been a phrase that has stuck with me my whole life. They opened doors for generations of artists to prosper in this industry. This is my way of saying thank you and providing physical proof that they made a difference. Plus with this project being more hip hop driven and a campaign that could potentially put the first female president in office, it was only right.”
President Barack Obama even endorsed Bellinger in the mixtape trailer! Peep that and the mixtape tracklist below:
