It’s been a couple of years since Brooklyn rappers the Flatbush Zombies released their Vacation in Hell album, but this week Erick the Architect released a single of his own, a collaboration with Col3trane called “WTF?”
“Following a year of profound self-reflection and artistic progression, Erick manifested this project,” reads the press release. “The record follows a trip through dimensions of loss, grief, community, love, and creation, threading together his most personal narrative yet codified in a theme of Brooklyn “stairs.” Presenting a three-dimensional picture, the Flatbush sonic auteur also welcomed a high-profile supporting cast from various genres to join him on this ride, including James Blake, Col3trane, FARR (Linden Jay, Roméo), Pip Millett, Sophie Faith, Dominic Maker, Loyle Carner, and more.”
He also has a partnership with Twitch, which sees him host Architect’s Corner every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Tune in at 9 p.m. PT on Friday, November 6 and every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, via Twitch.
