On Slay, Eddie Grand’s latest, a deep and dark trap-infused backing beat provides a stellar canvas upon which Grand’s inimitable lyrical flow can rest. With nods to The Game, Riff Raff, and Three 6 Mafia scattered throughout Slay, Grand ensures the widest swath of listeners will find something that they can appreciate. The haunting melodies presented in Slay ride out the final 30 seconds or so, ensuring that they are buried deep into the psyche of anyone listening in. The chiaroscuro exhibited here – a solid blend of dark and light elements – catapults Slay into the upper echelon of modern rap tracks.
