Ervin Mitchell’s 2016 debut EP KING SHIT gained him millions of streams and a passionate global fan base. His accomplishments have been rather impressive. They include various feats like trending on Shazam in India, Australia, and Russia to reaching #10 on the Brazilian iTunes rap charts. What is even more stunning is that the Memphis raised and Atlanta based rap/pop artist was somehow able to build this following independently without any major industry cosigns or features.
Well now the industry gatekeepers are paying attention and there is a rumored bidding war between several major label imprints occurring behind the scenes.
What perfect timing to release his long-awaited followup project LET THERE BE LIGHT (Et Facta Est Lux). The 4 song EP is an inspirational sermon on self-belief and manifestation. Ervin graces each track with melodic yet layered rapping that simultaneously stands out and fits in perfectly with the current musical soundscape. Each time I listen I find something new to love and I’m sure that you will too.
