E Coop, an 23 year old Milwaukee rapper who released his single titled “HellFire” has this tasteful rap style non conforming to the current wave of rappers while still maintaining a trendy image and sound that could possibly skyrocket him to the top if he makes all the right moves and networks! “Hellfire” has quick-witted and ingenious lyrics driven by a skilled flow and distinguishable rap voice. What’s interesting to this single is how the beat wasn’t so extravagant. If you heard the beat alone, you would think the song could possibly end up boring. However, E Coop turned an almost dull beat and spiced it up and brought lots of personality to it, making the song a characterized hit. My favorite moment in this song was the entire transition around 2:30 (on the Youtube timer). He completely switched his flow, the beat, and the style of the song and it was the most replenishing sound to hear. It showed me how versatile E Coop is and how he has the capability of entertaining others, and not giving too much without giving too little. E Coop has the full package and we’re excited to see where else he goes from here.
