On his new freestyle record, Eric enlists best friend and Compton native I AM COMPTON to pay tribute to their city while remixing Drake's "Furthest Thing" record. The song in which they've appropriately re-titled to "On The Go" is a coming of age record where both artists reminisce on past experiences and the roads they've traveled to get where they are today. The record which is accompanied by a artistic black and white visual showcases both Eric Bellinger & I AM COMPTON while highlighting some of Compton's most famous landmarks. Currently Eric Bellinger is in the studio working on his next mixtape installment "The Rebirth" available on February 11th while I AM COMPTON is working on his debut album under Subliminal Entertainment with his first official single being "Money To Spend" coming soon.
