Erick Rush is a conduit through which unheard stories are heard. His 2021 album, "Culture Shock: An Immigration Story" which he states as his most powerful to date tells his own experiences as a migrant through different states. Every track in here tells emotional, intimate and real stories in the most notable ways possible - it is no surprise it was massively received with deserved acclaim following positive reviews from magazines, listeners and radio play.

The track, "One Thing About Me" is a straight favorite - first things first, that rocket ship-inspired cover art is ready to launch and it epitomizes a steady rise of Erick Rush's career as he takes his music to space! With catchy hooks sandwiched in between real-life inspired thought-provoking bars, this is what authentic hip hop tastes like.

The beats are flawlessly expressive with a hypnotic blend of vintage synth lines, powerful drums, firm bass lines and of course the nostalgic thrill that is reminiscent of the old-school type of rap. Erick Rush honors his moment with a genuine display of rap-tainted poetic dexterity that makes an impression on any listener regardless of whether you enjoy rap music. He tells of how he had to step up on his and his family's behalf so as to create a pathway that many are now benefitting from.

Raw and honest, this is why "One Thing About Me" is an undeniable favorite. He featured fellow rapper K Riz who does well to complement this track both in storyline and symbolism coming through with clever wordplays over the transcendentally warm beats.

Watch for new music coming soon.
