Eprhyme (pronounced E-prime) is a Renaissance MC, combining cutting edge cultural expression with consciousness expanding contemporary Jewish commentary.
Whether rhyming about Current Events, Altered States of Consciousness, or Neo-Hasidic Storytelling, Eprhyme’s “rapid-fire word salads are a humanist vision of spirituality fused with social engagement.” (The Forward).
Eprhyme’s solo debut ‘Waywordwonderwill’ was released in 2009 by Brooklyn based Jewish and World music label Shemspeed. The album itself is an around the world audio tour of the Jewish Diaspora, as well as an in-depth exploration of Contemprary Jewish American experience and identity. Both fans and critics all over the world were impressed and inspired by “Eprhyme’s witty wordplay and barrier-breaking idealism” as well as the “top-notch production by Smoke of Oldominion whose beats blend rubbery basslines with traditional Yiddish klezmer riffs and Middle Eastern chants.” (Wire Tap)
Dopestylevsky, Eprhyme’s sophomore solo album is being released on the legendary Indie label K Records in April 2011 and it picks up right where ‘Waywordwonderwill’ left off. Eprhyme’s signature blend of universal poetics and personalized rap polemics are again paired up with an epic electronic orchestra conducted by Smoke of Oldominion and a host of live musicians. The album applies Eprhyme’s lofty lyricism to a more multi-dimensional outlook on everything from spirituality to art history to environmental issues. This is bold new music that is both thought provoking and body rocking.
Eprhyme has performed in major clubs, colleges and conferences worldwide with Hip Hop legends like KRS-ONE, Funkmaster Flex, Immortal Technique and countless others. He has also shared the stage with award-winning Jewish artists such as Matisyahu, Frank London and Pharoah’s Daughter.
Eprhyme is a dynamic and sought after speaker and lecturer in academic and spiritual settings.
