Grammy Award-winning producer E-A-Ski plans to drop his upcoming single “Legendary” on New Year’s Day, January 1, 2022, as he works towards finalizing his forthcoming Artist/Producer EP.
The multi-platinum producer has composed music for and collaborated with music’s most elite artists including Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Naughty By Nature, Too Short, and Tech N9ne to name a few.
When news of “Legendary” was announced, E-A-Ski spoke exclusively to Chad Kiser of West Coast Styles about the upcoming single saying, “The meaning behind Legendary is basically doing this as long as I’ve done it, being consistent, selling over 40 million records worldwide, and getting a Grammy Award, I started realizing times are changing as people are calling each other legends and the greatest of all time without having the track record or even the accolades to back up those claims. They’re self-proclaiming themselves legends.”
Quoting one of the verses in the song, Ski continued, “‘We’re not even the same bro/we’re not even in the same league, we’re not in the same game bro/a samurai to a butter knife/a Benz to a Hyundai/ a digital niggaro, you’re not even original/it’s pitiful for you to think for even one second/you can come close to sonically making a hot record/ let alone your contents is nonsense when I drop a four-alarm fire and a bomb threat/’”. This basically lets it be known that there’s a big difference between legends and people that’s popular. People are coming in and letting popularity swoop in a supersede that popularity doesn’t equal a legend or a greatest of all time, it just means that you’re popular for this time period.”
