Eric Cohen, a rapper from Kansas City, continues to convey is fervent desire to uplift others with a message of love, life, and hope with his most recent single, “Live for Christ.” Available as of last week, on March 10 on streaming platforms, and as of right now as well, on Bandcamp:
ORDER NOW “LIVE FOR CHRIST” BY ERIC COHEN ON BANDCAMP
Yolanda Reece contributes vocals to his most recent recording as a feature. Through Red’s Room Entertainment Facebook group, the musical match was made possible, and most likely through both of their equally stated key influence: Jesus. Recorded in Kansas City and co-produced by Trinidad Tobago, Cohen’s music maintains its vibey, smooth groove and production. And of course, naturally, the rapper doesn’t waste any time in letting you know what you’re getting and drawing a line between himself and others lyrically with the opening bar:
“I Got a different brain, we’re on a different wave. I talk about Jesus and you talk about killing things.”
The tasty church organ played during the song is what I like most about it. Given what we now know about Cohen, one could anticipate the gospel-style soulfulness of his music, but the beat as a whole comes off as very laid-back and west coast sounding, similar to a beat from a great Ice Cube hit from the 1990s.
Lyrically, Eric Cohen clearly cares deeply about both his message and his beliefs, and I believe that such feelings are best expressed through artistic creations. #LTF1K wrote more extensively about his difficulties and perils in the last piece, but it is important to reiterate at a high level because it is central point to his story. And that story is one of hardship being overcome and self-humbling oneself to become stronger than before. All the while staying on point with a loving and positive message. I’d recommend this artist once again for fans of artists like NF.
