Crew Love: Ether Da Connect

We're just two weeks away from beginning the year's hottest season, which means many rappers will be vying to have that coveted song of the summer. While many emcees are sure to drop major heat from June to August, one dude that's sure to have the city "going viral" is NYC rapper Ether Da Connect.


We've been rocking with homie for a minute now, but it wasn't until we spotted our Lafayette Rhinestone Logo Hoodie in his "Waka" (Remix)" music video from a few months back (seen above) that we knew the love was real. Ether reps for 800 Foreign Side, a crew at the forefront of hip-hop's burgeoning drill scene coming out of NYC, also home to Fivio Foreign and former "Crew Love" honoree Mr. Swipey. With a team of heavy hitters behind him, a co-sign from his rap idol Waka Flocka and a social media presence that's very entertaining — his recent comment on the statewide looting riots speaks major facts from a hilarious perspective — Ether Da Connect definitely deserves your attention.  

Peep the video for his Pop Smoke tribute “Invincible Freestyle” below:
