Fresh Faces Friday: The Fresh Committee Introduces Asun Eastwood

Fresh Faces FridayLast time we featured an MC from up North was all the way back in 2019, it was a different world. We followed the maple syrup trail and our ears which led us to Asun Eastwood.

East Toronto’s own first came to our attention earlier this year with his Sewer Science project, which featured bass riddled samples and a vividly dramatic account of life in the six than we’ve become accustomed to hearing.

Asun’s own life resembles a gritty motion picture, having dealt with the loss of his brother and his own near death experience. All of which he puts on wax:

Posturepedic flow, They sleeping on me/
Got the pots, made the pizza dough, don’t need your money/
Gave your hoe ‘pepto biz’, I reach her tummy/
On my klepto shit, I keep stealing from ‘em/

I’m divine in every context, I’m way ahead my time, I’m a better design, like Nike concepts/
Brought the tool to help my arm stretch/
Long TEC clips, bomb in reps you couldn’t/
even arm flex/

Since 2016 Asun has been coming provocative and trading bars alongside established acts such as Skyzoo and Daniel Son as well as up and coming rhymers like Rigz & M.A.V. to cut his saber teeth.

Point blank, this is one determined emcee with the talent and savvy to take it the distance.
