Portrait of Hippo: SIR E.U on Good Convo

On November 18th 2020 » By Michael Penn II

sir e.u

There’s a myriad of ways to describe SIR E.U, and a shortage of words that do the 27-year-old DC native any justice: idiosyncratic, innovative, relentless Aquarian leaning contrarian. As a multimedia artist, he’s spent over half his life designing sound, specializing in rap music and performance that shapeshifts on his whim and refuses to landlock itself. E.U’s been heralded, swagger-jacked, and still overlooked in the deep lineage of the D.C. underground. On this episode, Michael chronicles his best friend: the hour offers a mere glimpse into E.U’s journey, his musings on art in our world, and a snapshot into the duo’s ilived history as confidants and collaborators.
