Eto x Superior "Long Story Short" (Album Stream)


"From Hell’s Roof to the Rhine Valley, Rochester, NY emcee Eto (formerly known as Lil Eto) and German-Spanish producer Superior have joined forces! The result is the full-length collaboration, “Long Story Short,” released via Below System Records. Eto’s penchant for balancing the pain of the street and the progression of the hustle is a perfect foil for Superior’s cinematic and somber beat-scapes. Speaking on the collaboration, Superior said “My previous releases were rooted in my love of boom-bap. However, when I linked up with Eto, I started producing specifically with him in mind and keeping it more atmospheric in keeping with the coldness of his environment and narratives.” With a gripping chemistry throughout the only guest spots on the project is from Skyzoo and Toronto rhyme-counterpart, Daniel Son. Of course Eto has been releasing audio masterpieces at a dizzying rate in the past several months. As an emcee, Eto also recently laced tracks for Benny The Butcher, 38 Spesh and Jamal Gasol. Constantly adapting his work as a producer, Superior's catalogue for Below System Records includes his 2017 production album, “The Journey”, which included appearances from Blu, Edo. G, Reks, Termanology and Lil Fame among others. His full-length album with Chicago emcee, Verbal Kent, “Half My Life” was released in 2018." Listen to the LP below...
