Dreamville’s EarthGang have been quietly amassing a stellar discography, culminating in the release their acclaimed trifecta Rags, Robots, and Royalty. While they remain relatively slept on within the hip-hop community, those attentive listeners understand that Doctur Dot and Johnny Venus are top tier lyricists. At once clever, introspective, and experimental with it, the Gang seem positioned for a 2018 takeover. While their album Mirrorland remains a work in progress, the Gang continue to assure us that it’s still on track. Needless to say, if EarthGang continue down this path, it may very well prove to be an Album Of The Year contender.
It would appear they’re looking to diversify their creative endeavors. Following in the footsteps label mate “J.I.D,” EarthGang are planning a foray into the world animation. They recently took to Instagram to announce an upcoming animated series, which looks to build on the inevitable Mirrorland narrative. EarthGang are goddamn conceptual with it. It’s refreshing to see a group that’s not afraid to take risks; it just so happens they’re also formidable writers.
Keep an eye out for more news on EarthGang, and if you haven’t already done so, take the journey through Rags, Robots, and Royalty.
