Erick Arc Elliot or Erick The Architect, one third of Flatbush Zombies and the group’s primary producer has released his first solo EP, and it is hip-hop gold. Entitled Future Proof, it is pure hip-hop from one of the industry’s most talented. The production is underscored by shades of elegant R&B, with warm bass and pretty piano notes. Erick excels lyrically, crafting powerful verses with distinct delivery and enunciation.
Erick crafts unique grooves with each of the five tracks, which feature collaborations with the likes of the dynamic talent Col3trane and the silky smooth Loyle Carner, as well as some beautiful and soulful vocal performances from Pip Millet and Sophie Faith. The project contains deep undercurrents about empowerment, racism, creativity, love, and more. It’s that personal touch Erick leaves that makes for meaningful and beautiful hip-hop.
