Elaquent flips the Amerie classic and turns it into something that’s equal parts soulful, uplifting and what it must feel like to walk in stilettos on a rocky road 🙂

“We stay buildin’ because we love the heights…”
The hook features singer/songwriter Sam I Am Montolla giving a warm, soulful touch to the song.



“Pi (Brahma Built)” is being released in collaboration with the “Different Kitchen” blog, and featured on their compilation “This One Goes To Eleven.” co-premiered by Exclaim! Acknowledgement will be dropping September 5th.

Album –

“I really loved the way Stalley worked the Charles Bradley sample on the song…soulful with a new 808 bottom to it. When I decided that my next project was going to carry mixtape elements, I knew I would love to work this one into it. So my homie Shash’U and I recreated it, and I called on Sam I Am Montolla to bless the hook. Shout out the Original creator Lord Brahma!”
Thanks for your time!

NEW ALBUM: Es “Aspire To Inspire”

Ty Harper | Album,Audio,Music,Video | Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

First introduction to Es  via his latest album and title-track visuals.

This song is about setting realistic goals and remaining focused and following your dreams. Sometimes we set unrealistic goals for ourselves and as a result we fall short on expectation. This joint just had that type of inspirational vibe to it that gave me goosebumps. The production on this one is just phenomenal. Couldn’t believe this was all for me. LOL. A very suitable title track for the album. Dedicated to all dream chasers. Dream BIG and dream PRACTICAL. Don’t stop! Big shout out to my Essenchill Records labelmate and producer extraordinaire. Concept…Get to know this man!

Concept –

This is the 2nd single and title cut off the album of the same name… “Aspire To Inspire”. The full album is out RIGHT NOW!! on Support it !! A few dollars well spent and a welcomed addition to your music collection.
