Sick.Life is an independent music label based in El Paso, Texas, otherwise known as Sun City. Their debut album “Contagion” will release this March 4, on iTunes and Spotify. We have the pleasure of reviewing their dope new video ‘Xtra”, the first single from the album.
“Contagion” features artists like Elia Esparza (The Voice), Chi Bully (2015 TeamBackPack champion), and JGRXXN (Raider Klan) among the other talented artists from El Paso, Texas. The first single off the album “Xtra” has been played on KPOO Radio in San Francisco as well as Westword RADIO and KCAA RADIO in San Diego, California as well as Detroit Unplugged Radio in Detroit, Michigan.
E$ (E-Money) or The Beast From the Northeast, has a SICK flow and grimy voice to match. He is also one of the front men of the group along with Sonny Wesson. The executive producer of the album is Rob Bennett, who was inspired by the many talented artists who call El Paso and the surrounding areas their home. He carefully curated a mix of rappers, producers and singers to bring the city together for a sound of their own.
The first single and video off Contagion, “Xtra”, features E$ BFNE, Sonny Wesson, NZO. The beat, produced by Drezyah is dark like the video but it’s still hot! Even though it has a raw street element to it, ‘Xtra’ sounds prime for the club or party scene too.
One of the only drawback’s to the song is it ends somewhat abruptly. I think it would have been great for a third verse or maybe even another hook. We need more HEAT! Either way this project is unique and representative of the Sun City’s talented in the hip hop scene.
