Potholes Premiere: ECID Is An Invincible Old Soul On New Single “Vinyasa Flow”

ecid-vinyasa-flowAs Minneapolis-hailing rapper/producer ECID says himself on “Vinyasa Flow,” he is “a gangster, a hipster and a hippy with a weakness for the whisky.” That much is evident on this track that is equal parts bravado-fest and drunken stream of consciousness. And as the track continues to play, you’ll be drawn in thanks to the booming, video game-y instrumental and engaging raps that jump from one topic to the next. “Vinyasa Flow” serves as our first sampling of his upcoming album, Pheromone Heavy, that’s set to drop in 2015. If the rest of it sounds this goddamned crazy—I mean that in the best possibly way—the world is in for a seriously wild listen when it drops. Yeah, it’s safe to say we’re proud to premiere this one.

You can stream “Vinyasa Flow” and read its lyrics below. Be sure to peep his Bandcamp to buy/stream his previous projects.

Lyrics:

(Verse 1)

Im about to find my Drishti
Get lost til savasana hits me
Im a gangster, a hipster and a hippy
With a weakness for the whisky
It aint worth it if it ain’t threatening
Raps just Professional wrestling
Im the sucker still paying for cable
carving empty hearts on picnic tables
I head bang when I meditate
Turn heads when I levitate
Sex, weed, & yoga every day
Do what i gotta for better pay
Gotta Contact high that I can’t escape
Pheromones taste like a can of mace
Every damn days a hand grenade
Pull the pin and have your cake
Coulda been a better crook, too honest
In love with monopoly money, Plutonic
Everything’s better with set a, boobs on it
This song doesn’t need the “who’s who” on it
Hating on my style When, You bit it
Pissed off about the way it is, but Who isn’t it?
Everything I do got a lotta you in it
If you win I win, if I win it you win it

***HOOK***

Vinyasa flow got me feeling so unstoppable
Inhale tadasana, exhale golden goat
Vinyasa flow got me feeling so unstoppable
Inhale tadasana, exhale sour diesel

(Verse 2)

So in my zone I look possessed
I cant Own what I can’t confess
got a front row seat to see that ass
Upside down in a see through sun dress
Are we having fun yet?
I’m a dunk tank love pet
Poolside for the cum fest
but there too focused on the what’s next
My midwest accent to makes em’ swoon
Hubba hubba bubba baby boom
Speaking in sutras few consume
We might be fucked but far from Doomed
Boom chick-chick boom-boom
Please stop don’t kill the mood
We do this from noon til noon
Sleeps a thing that dead men do
Hitting home runs with my hormones
Stacking that Frozen Digiorno
Slipping in and out of a portal
Feeling so fucking Immortal
My girls in my favorite porno
Sucks me dry before I can stand
conducting Business with the Doors closed
high off my own supply and demand

***HOOK***

Vinyasa flow got me feeling so unstoppable
Inhale tadasana, exhale blue dream
Vinyasa flow got me feeling so unstoppable
Inhale tadasana, exhale Conny Chung

(Verse 3)

Stuck in line at the bank dreaming up the perfect getaway
Brosnan or Connery its all the same at the treasur(ay)
Fuck a lint roller this dog hairs an accessor(ay)
I like to leave a trail just to piss off all my enem(ay)s
Cant wait til I get off the grid
No no no thats not my kid
Thats the clone I made in 7th grade
when I was on some other shit
Now I’m on some other other shit
Up, up and ah fuck I cut my upper lip
Trying to do a headstand on the mother ship
Guess I’m just too parliament “funka-delicate”
I get my super human strength from Chinese take out
And anonymous make out sessions with spoiled princesses
Thats why I’m so restless rebelling against the elements
Dope will always be relevant and This is your fucking evidence

***HOOK***
Vinyasa flow got me feeling so unstoppable
Inhale tadasana, exhale Tahitian Treat
Vinyasa flow got me feeling so unstoppable
Inhale tadasana, exhale OG Kush

  1. Love the new song. It’s so exciting to hear Ecid grow and progress with each new album. Don’t get me wrong, I like Ecid’s older stuff but Werewolf Hologram was on a whole new level. Post Euphoria was even better. With hearing this first single it’s safe to say that Pheromone Heavy is going to melt our brains into an elevated state of artistic hip-hop bliss. Fill In The Breaks will be raping your ear holes for years to come and you will LOVE IT
