On His Eyrst Debut, Rapper ePP Gets Personal and Looks Inward
“I know it’s been talked about before, but I wanted to add my take on the other issues we face,” says ePP, who declined to share his real name and his age. “There are times when we feel alone and know that no matter how hard people try, there are things about being black in America that they’ll never fully comprehend. I want to keep that conversation going.” “They,” of course, refers to those in white society holding hierarchical power over blacks and other people of color. On his new record, There’s a Place for People Like You, which was released last week on local hip-hip label Eyrst, ePP addresses those social mechanisms.
