DJ Enyoutee Presents the Planet Asia & Milano Constantine EP
East and West Coast Rhyme Veterans Connect for Lyrical Showdown
By: East Rock Entertainment
Living rap legends Planet Asia and Milano Constantine team up for six hard-hitting, lyrically-charged tracks for their collaborative EP helmed by New York's DJ Enyoutee. And as the deejay tells it, getting these two together not only felt right but completely necessary. "Planet Asia and Milano respect each other as artists, so when I reached out, they were both down to make it happen without hesitation,"
They were right, because this project embodies everything you'd want from the players involved with its creation. The two emcees remain at the top of their game with their rhymes, and they make their intentions clear straight from the jump. Like this line from Milano, a D.I.T.C. affiliate with roots in NYC, on the opening track, "Pharoahs": "The joinin' of the two pharoahs/ Tango & Cash, n***as hit you with double-barrels."
Equally important, the production is absolutely perfect for Milano and PA to talk their most lavish sh*t. Enyoutee picked out a collection of neck-snapping boom-bap from six different producers, and he was able to keep the sound consistent and cohesive throughout. "Being a deejay, I know that combining the two artists would work from a sonic perspective, while also being something that their fans would want to hear, so I knew the beat selection had to be rugged but also diverse," he says.
It all makes for another stellar entry in the already-impressive catalogues of both emcees. These two have been at it for years and refuse to slow down, all while maintaining the same level of passion and desire. This ain't some grown-up rap or anything like that; it's hip-hop at its best, pure and simple.
