Esh The Monolith
Hometown: Boston, MA by way of Providence, RI
Notable songs: “Soap Scum” and “Bored Games”
Sounds like: His enunciation and passive aggression screams Asher Roth, but he definitely takes inspiration from boom bap. You can also hear hints of Ratking and Earl Sweatshirt in the subject matter.
Why you need to know him: From his wordplay and delivery, you can tell he’s a witty dude with flexible vocal abilities, and he’s definitely different. His live show is probably an all-inclusive shitshow that we’d love to attend.
