Toronto’s own Ekko Effect may be one of the wisest “poetic prophets” this city has, and just so happens to a part of the Winners’ Circle collective with L the 12th Letter and Bad Newz. The strikingly aggressive “Rock-a-Bye-Baby” is off of Ekko’s album Knowledge Speaks Wisdom Listens that dropped this past November.
“Rock-a-Bye-Baby” underscores the true power we have over our words: “words are like weapons, they can kill in mere seconds”. They demonstrate that there is a substantial difference between rapping for the ability of doing so and then taking it one step further, “rapping to make a killing”.
