Organs begin Ebenezer’s new lament, “53 Sundays,” where he pleads “pass the collection plate, I’m tryin to make it to heaven.” The twist, though, is that the UK rapper doesn’t seem to feel all that bad about his sins. He says it’s all good to “blow smoke, snort coke” and even “bring a weapon/as long as you go to church in the morning.” The song ends up being more of a religious ode to the life enshrined in most rap music than it is an atoning for any sins: his “mama still prays” for him anyway. The organs cut out during the verses to make way for a Blood Orange-esque, percussion-only beat, over which Ebenezer raps in a chill, sing-song flow.The song comes as a follow-up to Ebenezer’s recent “When I Call Em” featuring A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, which came out in May. Listen to Ebenezer’s new track below:
You know how the church go
This that Church’s Chicken, wicked with the church flow
You gotta crawl before you walk, bro
Runnin wild in the city with my church clothes.
