OnSmash Saturday

Eshon Burgundy takes flight!

This week's OnSmash Saturday features philly native Eshon Burgundy! Listen as he lifts off lyrically on this joint. Its definitely a head nodder! Mrenc provides some nice vocals as well, really bringing balance to the overall grittiness of the track. Enjoy!

Eshon Burgundy-Close Your Eyes feat. Mrenc

Quick Bio: Anton “Eshon Burgundy” Hairston was born in Abington, Pennsylvania and grew up on the streets of South Philadelphia where he relocated in his preteen years. Growing up, all he heard around the house was hip-hop and rhythm and blues music which caught his artistic attention. That experience chartered him to start writing songs when he was just 9 years old.

After years of dabbling in both secular and holy hip hop, Eshon finally decided to focus his message solely on the saving grace of God through Christ, but still for the streets. He’s poured out his message in mixtapes like “The Fire Escape,” “Cleaning Out My Closet,” “Blood Bought” and “The Fire Escape Reissued” between 2007 and 2010. Along the way he discovered his graphic design and film making abilities and founded GoodLook Multimedia, providing design and video services to other artists and clients.
