Eric Sosa Serves Up “Rhyme & Noodles”


“Every day I wake up in the morning sun – I feel my life it’s just begun – I praise the Lord in Heaven above – for giving me this Summer of Love.”

Summer of Love is just one track off of Eric Sosa’s recently released mixtape “Rhyme & Noodles,” which displays this storyteller’s technique of insightful lyrics over the acoustic guitar and rhythmic drums, just one example of this Queens rapper’s diverse sound. ericsosa4

Acknowledging that all his inspirations come naturally, the concept behind Sosa’s Rhyme & Noodles:  No Artificial Flavoring Vol. 1, came after consuming Ramen Noodles consistently 3 times a day.

At a time when he thought the word “recession” was being used too loosely, he felt “Rhyme & Noodles” would be a perfect representation of that.

Eric Sosa’s admiration for music, developed after accidentally falling in love with the snare drums at a young age, after joining the marching. However, it wasn’t until the age of 11, that Hip-Hop became a major force in his life.

Like many  artists coming up in the social media realm, Sosa contributes a great deal of his success to various social networking sites, yet recognizes, its shortcomings. “I am very grateful for social networks. Artists before me didn’t have this tool back in the days.  It does make it easier to steal music, but the good comes with the bad. ”

Sosa acknowledges that balance is very important to him. In an era where Hip-Hop has been criticized to be overly-commercialized, Eric Sosa has managed to create a name for himself.

As he began writing at an early age, Sosa believes this gave him a head start in the race of “finding himself as an artist.” After discovering the talent within him, he added balance to his craft, allowing him to dabble into different genres and sounds, poles apart from other Hip-Hop artist.

“It’s totally fine to be commercial, as long as it’s real. There’s nothing better than being yourself on a record. The world will love it and you make millions for it.”

As record labels become a thing of the past, many emerging artist have broken through the norm and are achieving success by creating their own empires. Eric Sosa shows that artists can continue without labels, however, labels cannot continue without artists.

Eric is grateful to have a strong team behind him and believes that having the help of a label is phenomenal, yet believes he will be the reason the “360 deal” rests in peace.

When asked who would be in his starting line-up in Hip-Hop, Eric jokingly says, “I’ll have Elzhi on point, Phonte playing power, Jay-Z would be my shooting guard, Common could play small forward and my center would be Busta Rhymes. I could see him screaming “wooo haaa!” after every block….and Kanye would be the sixth man. I’ll just keep him on the bench so he could talk shit all day to the opposing team.”
