Eyedea & Abilities
By The Throat
(Rhymesayers Entertainment)

It has been five years since the dynamic duo of rapper Eyedea and turntablist Abilities last released a record. Back then, E&A, their second album, showcased their individual abilities [no pun intended] as well as delivering ridiculous examples of how both men could work around each other, knocking your ear drums out like a young Mike Tyson with his foes.

Since then, Eyedea has been experimenting with different styles in his work with Carbon Carousel and Face Candy, but he has come back to what made him a name in the underground scene and this track, taken from their upcoming album By The Throat, shows they’ve not lost their mojo one little bit.

Immediately as This Story starts [click above to listen], the listener is bludgeoned by Abilities’ wah-wah pedal infused scratching which follows up with the unrelenting beat that Eyedea jumps on with his trademark fast paced flow. But it is when the guitar hook comes in, wailing over the drums, that the track really comes alive. If this track is anything to go by, By The Throat is going to be one hell of an album.
