Music Monday: Edan

For today’s Music Monday, I thought I’d dip into a little underground hip-hop. Holla atchaboy.

Okay. Now that I got that out of my system…

Edan Portnoy is a Boston emcee, producer and deejay with two highly acclaimed studio albums to his credit. The track above is from his first album, Primitive Plus. However, I’d highly recommend his sophomore album, Beauty and the Beat, if you want a real taste of the old-school-funk-driven samples and absurdist lyricism that this guy is known for.

Below, after the jump, I’m including a clip of Edan performing “Get Wise ’91” with Mr. Lif–a track that appeared on Mr. Lif’s album Emergency Rations. Oh, and the track is produced by Edan as well.
