Philadelphia native Eshon Burgundy is no stranger to the hip-hop world. In recent years he’s featured on Jazzy Jeff’s Return of the Magnificent (BBE), Hezekiah’s I Predict a Riot (Rawkus), and Snowgoons’ Snowgoons Dynasty (Babygrande). He’s also collaborated heavily with a number of fellow Christian rappers, such as: Bizzle, Andy Mineo, Gemstones, Braille and more. Over the years he’s dropped a litany of mixtapes and two albums of his own. His first album Blood Rushing to My Head (2012) and his more recent Billboard charting release The Fear of God (Humble Beast, 2015).
Now, moments before the New Year, Eshon returns with a new single produced by Apollo Brown. The song entitled “Gunz x Rosez” has been in the making for over two years. Though the song arrived just two weeks ago, Eshon has followed up with stunning video directed by Will Thomas to accompany it.
“But I know the Savior’s the only way to keep this nation in tact/
That’s why my only demonstration will be stating the facts/
A nation full of lost white n blacks
God shine a light/
And bring us all together Black brown tan and white/
One nation under God the part of the pledge nobody likes/
