Florida native Alexander “Eskeerdo” Izquierdo left school at the age of 15 to pursue a music career. It was the best decision he could have made: he’s now an established songwriter and his resume includes songs written for Rihanna, Kanye West and Fifth Harmony – as well as multiple Grammy Awards.
‘Bitta’ was released in January this year, with the video coming out last month. Eskeerdo describes it as a call-out to “all the uptight folks who stay mad at the world…the one[s] who are always crying about something.”
The video contains all the hip hop hallmarks of money and beautiful women, with Eskeerdo – contrasting the less successful who are “bitter like you bit into a lemon” instead of working hard to make their own success – “a dude at the bar chewing on free ice” while others are popping bottles of champagne that they’ve earned. The track has a grime feel to it, with Eskeerdo rhyming over the simple instrumentation of chimes and beats.
‘Bitta’ is available on iTunes and Spotify. Check out Eskeerdo on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Soundcloud, and his official website.
