Eddie B ft. Action Bronson – Marvelous (Prod. Harry Fraud)
Next week, on Wednesday, March 13th, Eddie B & Harry Fraud, alongside Roc Marciano, Copywrite, and more, will headline the Man Bites Dog Records Official SXSW showcase – and they’ll be using the opportunity to unveil their new EP, Horsepower, both live on stage and as an exclusive early release via cassette tape. Today, following last week’s release of lead single “Courage,” Eddie and Harry are releasing the EP’s second single, “Marvelous,” which was premiered by MTV Hive and features fellow NY rapper Action Bronson.
While “Courage” carried a more slowed, deliberate pace, driven by Fraud’s creeping chops and Eddie’s spaced out bars, “Marvelous” carries a quicker tempo, which does well, in contrast to “Courage” in showing off Eddie B’s diversity and ability to flip flows . The hook, built around a sampled lyric from Raekwon’s classic “Rainy Dayz” verse, sets the tone for the track, as Eddie and Action trade impressive bars. “I just listen to the beat,” says Eddie, “and it instructs me what to do.”
