North meets South on hot new track from Eazy and Rico
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL & BROOKLYN, NY – North meets South in a hot new single from hip hop duo Eazy and Rico, two long time friends who have collaborated on music over the years and developed a one-of-a-kind sound that breaks down all barriers. Their most recent single, “Outta Town Freak,” is yet another example of the kind of genre-breaking sound they’ve created – a sound that is not only turning heads in their hometowns of Brooklyn and Fort Lauderdale but in places all over the world.
Eazy and Rico first met when they were in middle school. Rico’s family moved from New York to Florida and he turned to music as a source of comfort during the transition. When he met Eazy at school, it was like meeting a kindred spirit, and the musical chemistry was there from the start.
“We’re like brothers now and it’s like nothing to work together because he is so easy to work with,” Rico said. “He usually comes up with beats and I come up with bars though he’s got some bars, too. It just comes out real nice. We have good chemistry – the North-meets-South kind of sound that comes out real good when mixed up. You get to hear both sides of the spectrum and because of that, no one out there can mess with us.”
“Outta Town Freak” is a perfect example of that originality. Eazy describes it as a “getaway, party-type song” about women who like to let loose while they’re on vacation. The catchy, upbeat vibe will definitely get people bouncing, and the various situations that the girls in the song get caught up in are the kind of stories that almost anyone can relate to and laugh at.
“They have a good time and things end up happening and they’re having a blast,” Eazy said. “The name of the song speaks for itself. It’s about being wild while you’re out of town on vacation. That’s why we shot the music video on South Beach in Miami. We wanted to show girls coming in town and having a blast on the beach on a beautiful sunny day with everybody celebrating.”
Music is a passion for these two friends. It flows through their blood, hearts and DNA. And as more people have supported that passion, it has fueled them more and more over the years. Though Rico has since moved back to New York where he’s pursuing an independent career, the two still collaborate on music all the time and are constantly in communication with one another on new ideas and sounds. They don’t consider themselves just rappers but artists because every song they release always paints a picture of their versatility.
“We’re excited to introduce the world to our unique kind of music,” Eazy said. “We get in the studio and magic happens. We’re going to wake up a lot of people to who we are. You’re going to see how versatile and different we are. We can do everything and we’re all about the lyrics. We’re bringing a different flavor when it comes to music and we want people to remember us for what we bring to the table.”
