Underrated as can be, Erick Sermon‘s releasing a brand new album in the coming months. E.S.P. (Erick Sermon Perception) drops next month and in order to keep the word of mouth going, the legendary EPMD/Def Squad rapper teams with two individuals who know a thing or three about groups.
Sheek Louch of The L.O.X. and Joell Ortiz of Slaughterhouse offer guest verses for The Greed Eyed Bandit’s “Make Room” track. All three represent a different side of NYC—Sermon for Queens, Sheek for Yonkers and Ortiz for Brooklyn. The visual shows the trio rapping in front of railyards and other gritty locales that showcase the grimy, tougher side of the world’s most famous city.
Following his “Clutch” release with Method Man and Redman, Sermon wraps up his verse with: “Since Bishop is gone, the game is juiceless/You ain’t seen nobody since E this Ruthless.”
E.S.P., his first full-length album since 2004’s Chilltown, New York drops on Aug. 26. Watch Sermon’s “Make Room” visual here.
