Much holds true to this statement for Eyerone (Virginia Beach, VA) as both a person and an artist. It is from this human approach that each song is individually crafted & released. Eyerone (pronounced “Irony”) is a rapper who hails from the suburbs of the resort city of Virginia Beach, Virginia; home to successful artists such as Timbaland, The Neptunes, The Clipse, and more.
As the son of a Navy father, Eyerone was afforded the opportunity to live overseas for several years, which helped cultivate him & broadened his horizons and perspectives. Returning to Virginia Beach with a broadened focus, he was able to refine his creativity and talent for short stories & poetry into lyrics that would later manifest into full-length songs.
Inspired by the likes of the representatives of his state (Teddy Riley, Timbaland, Missy Elliot, The Neptunes, The Clipse, Skillz, Chris Brown), the sounds of various regions of the United States (early 80s-90’s East Coast Rap [Rakim, Slick Rick, Notorious B.I.G] early to mid-90’s West-Coast Rap, The Midwest [Bone Thugs n Harmony/Twista] and the vibe of all around good music, Eyerone aims to relate to the “Average Joe” while maintaining a commercial feel. His rhymes have been described as “no-frills”, “authentic”, and “true to life.” With a passion for wordplay & storytelling, Eyerone strives to take hip-hop listeners & fans alike back to a time in Hip Hop where things were “normal” and felt “right.” Eyerone aspires to have listeners take an auditory journey with him with the release of In Vitro.
“The project [InVitro] itself is somewhat of a throwback to the days when songs had “rewindability.” That’s when you don’t catch the gist of a clever quip or straight-forward punchline until the third or fourth listen. Replay value, so to speak. Eyerone doesn’t disappoint lyrically one bit.The final product is a sonically cohesive piece of art whose lyrical content is timeless & a sound that will satisfy the most stoic of Hip Hop afficianados.” -@TheTonyGrands
Since the release of In Vitro, Eyerone has been observing, calculating & formulating the plot for his sophomore solo project titled Stuck In Forever. The album was written & recorded within a 16-hour period in the beautiful state of California. The entirety of the album is produced by Harles Mac and will be released in February 2014. With this new project, Eyerone aspires to solidify his standing as one of the best new up & coming artists in the hip-hop world today. He hopes you join him as he aims for that ever-fleeting light at the end of the tunnel!
