Edwin Morrow is an accomplished actor and budding rapper, originally from East St. Louis, Illinois and based in Los Angeles, California. Under the name Edvanzd, Morrow sought to expand his musical focus, debuting with the Peyote Beats-produced EP, The Prelude, in 2014. Currently, Morrow hosts a growing freestyle series called #FireFlowFridays, furthering his stature as a hip hop artist.
After a slew of successful follow-up singles over the years, Morrow’s latest single, “How U Wanna Do It,” was released back in June. Morrow and guest vocalist Kevin Hues are well-suited to the track, with Hues handling the chorus and Morrow on verses. Based on previous singles, which united a kind of blunt aggression with inspirational persistence, this track provides quite the contrast. What’s on offer is a smooth, bass-filled backdrop for a night of passion — so intense that you ask yourself “Who is this girl? Who taught her all that? Who is her man? Am I being set up?” all the while letting your body do the talking. I appreciate how the song’s approach is more lighthearted, as it continues to showcase Edvanzd’s ability to not only ease away from serious-toned thematic leanings, but at the same time, maintain output of a solid product.
