Eyedea and Abilities could swap names and it would still work. Eyedea is a rhymer with numerous battle championships under his belt, yet he’s able to spin complex yarns; he puts down a book’s worth of lyrics on E & A, the duo’s second album. Abilities is a turntablist with undeniable wrist skills and DMC titles, but he also drops hard-hitting involved productions. It’s the way these two link up that propels E & A. When Abilities grinds out the shuffle-technical “Star Destroyer,” Eyedea responds with a ferocious battle verse, and neither flags in intensity throughout.
