Eternia and MoSS - At Last

Eternia and MoSS

Considering how big a fan I am of Shad’s Keep Shining, a song that contains a verse encouraging more female participation in hip hop, it would be a little hypocritical of me to overlook an album from an incredibly talented, Canadian female MC. Eternia calls Queens home these days, but she’s Ottawa-born and Toronto bred, with a Juno nomination already on her CV. She’s also put out a number of singles and three previous full-length albums in her career to date, but for her fourth, At Last, she’s joined by another Torontonian, producer MoSS.

 

The results of their collaboration are very impressive. At Last sounds like classic east coast hip hop, with MoSS keeping things fairly simple - thick drums, heavy keyboard samples and plenty of scratched in samples, and Eternia coming hungry on each and every track. Really, Eternia’s abilities as an MC should impress even the most discerning of hip hop fans, and a bit of the Googleage will return a number of hip hop heavyweights co-signing her skills. You can see why on At Last, as she has an agressive style but still manages to convey a great deal thought and intelligence in her lyrics - she’s a scene stealer of the highest order, even on her solo tracks.

 

Fifteen tracks long, with pretty much zero filler and song themes that range from classic braggadocio (Any Man, The BBQ) to the incredibly personal (Pass That, The Half), At Last is certainly worth your time. So get on it.
