Your favorite rapper’s favorite singer, Eric Bellinger, is the left coast’s most prolific songwriting talent. Fresh off a successful presidential campaign, Eric is ready to kick back the upcoming holiday: not Easter, not Passover, but 4/20. Flipping the classic riff from the Tom Tom Club‘s “Genius of Love,” famously sampled by Mariah Carey on “Fantasy,” Eric Bellinger takes a smoke break on “Blazin’ Wit The Bros,“ his latest treat for the heads. Featuring a smooth guest spot from The Game, “Blazin’ Wit The Bros” finds the Compton-born singer planning his next move as he enjoys some A-grade ganja. Premiered by HotNewHipHop, “Blazin’ Wit The Bros” is the first single from Cannabliss, Eric’s upcoming EP. A brief, but memorable and well-crafted 4/20 treat, Cannabliss graces the internet on April 17th. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
Eric Bellinger describes the concept behind Cannabliss: “Marijuana has a really dark cloud over it for some reason, but I happen to love everything about it. With the worldwide holiday 4/20 approaching, I wanted to do something in an attempt to help erase the negative stigma attached to it. My idea was to create a project about weed that everyone would love, especially the stoners! A project so good that people would enjoy it even if they didn’t smoke. A project so vibey, so smooth, so mesmerizing, so relaxing, so hypnotizing that the energy embedded in the sonics of music would subliminally relieve stress & cause the listener to feel high, effortlessly coercing them into a state of ‘CANNABLISS.'”
Capitalizing on the 2016 campaign season, Eric Bellinger released the Eric B. and Rakim-referencing Eric B. For President: Term 1 in September 2016, as well an acoustic rendition of the project in 2017. Its follow up, Eric B. For President: Term 2, which featured Wale, Victoria Monet, Elhae, and Tayla Parx. The grandson of legendary “Rockin’ Robin” songwriter Bobby Day, Eric Bellinger has racked up dozens of songwriting placements over the years, including hits for Usher (“Lemme See”) and Justin Bieber (“Right Here), eventually earning a Grammy for working on Chris Brown‘s F.A.M.E. Always working hard on writing songs for himself and others, Cannabliss will continue his hot streak and show the world a new side of Eric’s personality.
