Eric Bellinger released his new “In My Prime“ft. Phil Ade a few weeks ago, campaigning for the presidency of his mixtape Eric B. For President: Term 1, which arrives today.
About the eight-track tape’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,” he said. “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.”
The project is full of trap-laden R&Bangers with Bellinger venturing more into the hip-hop/rap lane, but there’re a couple of smooth jams, as well! (“One Of Them” and “Remind Her”)
