One of Tacoma’s most lyrically talented and street conscious Hip-Hop outfits is the Pyranha Gang, repping the Eastside. One of the members, ESO FT, recently released his debut solo album titled East Side Energy. The album cover art is colorful and features glimpses of a well-known Tacoma Eastside mural. It is hard to find a crew that reps the Eastside more proper than Pyranha Gang.
In particular, ESO FT is a savvy, street-smart, slick-talking M.C. He has a clear voice that cuts through the electricity and sounds alive in your ears. His cadence is so West Coast you will thank the Hip-Hop GODS. Every word is dripping with so much sauce it will stain your ears. To hear ESO rap is to hear all the game wrapped-up from every pimp, mack, hustler, player, and gangsta you ever heard on a West Coast corner. FT is one of the younger members of Pyranha Gang and his voice has an infectious energy that makes you want to follow along.
