Philadelphia-based rapper Eshon Burgundy releases new album on 27th May

FOLLOWING 2015's Billboard-charting 'The Fear Of God' album, Philadelphia-based rapper Eshon Burgundy will release 'The Passover' on 27th May. Said the emcee, 'The album is loosely inspired by the Passover of Exodus. . . The account in the Bible is about liberation and as a man once confined to the four walls of a public housing community, I share the experience of an oppressed people. Growing up, my community, Passyunk Homes, wasn't designed as an outlet - it was more like a dead end. Living in makeshift houses made of cinderblocks and tar, I saw a world filled with drug dealers, drug addicts and crime. A few of my friends were killed, I was almost killed. But the Lord spared and delivered me. I'm grateful that by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal death angel has passed over my soul. This album is an expansion of that." CR
