According to the EPMD member on a Vlad TV Exclusive,Erick Sermon has said he will be dropping his next album, ESP: Erick Sermon Perception, this year with a number of A-list features, including Mary J. Blige, Sheek Louch, Joell Ortiz, Too Short, Fred The Godson and of course the home team of DEF SQUAD !(Redman and Keith Murray).
When it comes to the state of Hip-Hop, Sermon feels the conversation is boring now a days , but has faith in artists like Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and Joey Bada$$ who could potentially turn things around for Hip Hop culture and may be able to stir it up for the fans benefit. Although he does add that he enjoys the diversity in Hip Hop nowadays being that you no longer have to be on the same wave as everyone else to get some shine! A lot of Sub Genre that appeal to wider audiences and make hip hop stronger because it only makes the culture bigger!
