Sean Leon teamed up with Milly Manson & Eestbound for “XXXCITED” & you need to hear it

Toronto, ONOriginally published July 18, 2016 – As he gears up for the highly anticipated release of Black Sheep Nirvana next month, IXXI Initiative founder Sean Leon lets loose a hot new track titled “XXXCITED” in collaboration with Milly Manson and Eestbound.

Sean Leon posted the track up on SoundCloud accompanied by the following caption: “JUST GOT LAID & PAID SO I’M DROPPING THIS TO HOLD US ALL OVER UNTIL BLACK SHEEP NIRVANA DROPS IN AUGUST.”

This song won’t be on the new album, but it serves as a gift to all of us who are waiting on the edges of our seats for BSN to finally drop. Sean’s been tiding us over all year with these fire releases. And with every release, I get more and more itched for the album to drop.

“XXXCITED” is HipHopCanada’s Song of the Day.

You need to hear this three-parter from Sean Leon titled

The track leads in to one of Eestbound’s monster compositions with a throwback Metroid Prime sample laced with a crispy trap drumline. Milly Manson (who was one of my favourite up-and-coming rappers of 2015) lends his chops on the song’s first verse, and Sean delivers the rest of the track and the hook:

“I’m with some tings and they XXXCITED/ It’s 4 a.m. and they aint tired/ They on my dick/ Yeah/ They inspired/ Cuff your ting/ Or I’m ‘a try her.”

Sean has spent years honing in on his signature dark party sound that fuses grimy compositions with filthy lit drumlines and savage lyricism.

I truly, truly believe that Black Sheep Nirvana is going to be a game changer. Sean Leon has stayed meticulous for years and it’s all going to come to fruition this time around. He’s one of few who I truly feel deserves to have his time at the throne of Canadian rap.
