Every Wednesday, on the Morning After w/ Angela Yee we have a segment called “Gimme A Break” were we feature two up and coming rappers trying to break into the music industry. Our last season featured Reece Steele and Billy Ray. This season features Harlem rapper Esso and Vibe’s #1 Stan contest winner, Daphya.
The last couple of weeks have been huge for Esso. His Michael Jackson inspired “Off the Wall” mixtape has been received to rave reviews and his release party was a smash. It’s understandable therefore that Esso would swagger up to the show pumped and ready to celebrate his progress.
Things went a little left however when comedian and friend of the show, Patrice O’neal, dropped in to say hello and got distracted by Milani Rose, the video vixen from Esso’s “Don’t Stop” video. Patrice was clearly more interested in flirty with Milani in anything Esso had to say.
Round 1 definitely went to Patrice. In the second part after some pretty dope freestyles Angela gives Esso an opportunity for some get back. Angela asks Esso to record a diss track about Patrice. Patrice quips that it’s a shame that Esso “is about to become a celebrity based on disrespecting him. The sexy Milani couldn’t do it and Michael Jackson couldn’t do it…”
