21-year-old Toronto singer Ebhoni Breaking Down Boundaries With New Mixtape “Good Dick & Weed“
The 10-track mixtape sees Ebhoni enter into a new phase of her life and she is more motivated than ever. Throughout the tape she works with 12 of the most in demand producers and solidifies her place within the global R&B landscape.
Good Dick & Weed in many ways channels a keen sense of the best parts of what some would define as nostalgia: the era of mixtapes and tumblr, telling a story through visceral imagery and honest anecdotes, the internet in its rawer early form. Good Dick & Weed paints snapshots of different cities in the same harshly ephemeral gleam, from Westwood to Wilshire, specific places made universal by the heartbreak and hopefulness within them.
On opening track “If You Know You Know”, Ebhoni speaks directly to a night where gunfire punctured six bullet holes in the backseat window of her family’s car, and they had to temporarily relocate to her grandmother’s house, where she openly wonders: what if she had been sitting in that backseat? Putting up walls for her own self-protection, she’s only now beginning to draw from the power that comes from her own vulnerability.
She says: “I really have been through so much, and it’s important to show that to help others who might not have that platform.”
Good Dick & Weed is a product of nighttime, connecting the dots and piecing together information from strings of late night texts, voice notes from the calls you choose not to pick up, as well as poignant diary vignettes curled up in the sink from the washroom of the Atlanta apartment she currently resides. where the low-key 21-year-old feels her most authentic self.
Ebhoni is branching out into a more genre-less territory with feminine power as the driving force behind everything she does. She feels that Toronto females are often overlooked and she is here to change that.
