Artist of the Week – E-Mence (#3)

Sunderland based rapper - E-Mence

Picking this week’s Artist of the Week was tough, again the North East’s hip-hop scene seemed to be making the most noise – so that quickly narrowed my choice down. Then…E-Mence dropped two new videos and a new track, all within the space of a week… it had to be him.

So, here we have another MC from Wearside taking the AOTW spot, but one very different from the last. E-Mence is on somewhat of a comeback mission, embracing hip-hop again early last year after a three year hiatus, following a brush with a less than reputable record label.  With a new album on the horizon, titled Live Fast, Die Young, the young MC looks to be ruthlessly determined to make it to the top by any means necessary Рit seems that all rappers from Sunderland share this same highly impressive work rate.

E-Mence’s look and sound however, do make him stand out from his Wearside counterparts. E’ has a distinctly clear flow that doesn’t incorporate as much slang and local dialect as the majority of the artists from the region – this, paired with his dark lyrics and style that’s more ‘rocker’ than ‘rapper’, makes E-Mence one of the most individual artists in the scene – not to mention one of the most talented.
