Need a gift for a gifted musician?
A Bronx Born and raised indie rap artist: E-ryDa's Music matches with his lifestyle. He lived in two different places. He possesses two different musical talents (raps and makes beats), E is two different types of artists, a group artist and a solo artist. Also, since E-ryDa lived around different environments and can produce his own music he can easily translate his life into beat. Therefore, because of these diverse places, he is open to rapping to any genre to become an all-around rap artist. His style may change through out an album simply because of the places that he has been or the emotion that he has felt at the time may trigger a sudden change of style. But thing never changes: there is always a message to be found in his songs.
"E" was a nickname given to him from his Mother. The "E" and the "D" are the only letters capitalized to emphasize the Initials of in his name. Eric Dodson.
