Thank you for taking the time to check my site! I love Hip Hop, from the stage to the classroom, and I take pride in my artistry. Take a look around, and if you like what you see, let's connect!
Born and raised in Clinton Hills, Brooklyn, N.Y., Eshod Howard knew he had a message to deliver to the world. He began to really work on his craft while studying psychology at Shaw University in North Carolina. His industry influences include both local and national hip hop artists like Rakim, Jay-Z, Biggie, Yasiin Bey [Mos Def], Jeezy, Skyzoo and Kendrick Lamar. When he realized his passion, he became serious about picking a stage name. He noticed people gravitated towards his music and his words. “I thought long and hard of a name to exemplify how far I’ve come and where I plan to go, hence Eternal was born. I proclaimed myself Eternal because I want to live forever through my body of work.” He aspires to make music to cause conversation and touch people’s souls. “I want my music to be able to invoke change for the better. I want my music to connect to the greatness in every person."
Throughout my 10+ years of experience, I have toured with Justus League Co-Founder Cesar Comanche, curated my own tour, performed alongside Casual of the Hieroglyphics and Stalley [formerly of Maybach Music Group], and I have also lectured at North Carolina State University, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and the Raleigh Boys and Girls Club of Durham.
"Eternal the M.C. is not only a MC but an educator of the culture we love, Hip-Hop. Eternal has done an amazing job making sure people interested in keeping our culture alive flourish with knowledge and have the platform through the Cypher [Cypher Univercity] to grow and develop. Although he himself is an inspiring MC he takes time to help with the community helping young artists come into their own lane and craft."
What can you say about Eternal The M.C.? He’s an MC’s MC! He can freestyle, give you bars and give you messages. Definitely someone who is representing Hip-Hop culture to the fullest. Bonus point...He always sends his music to me personally. He respects and takes care of the DJ!
"Eternal the MC is a lyricist who matches potent delivery with purposeful content. With a blend of an emcee's spirit and a poet's wordplay, Eternal has always impressed me with his music. Having had the pleasure of recording music with him and sharing the stage, I've seen his work ethic and drive in practice. I respect his artistry and talent. The music he makes is a true representation of good Hip Hop music."

"Eternal the MC solidifies when independent New York rap meets North Carolina. His real life verses and expressions when he records leaves the hip hop scene with a breath of fresh air. I've had the honor of seeing him do his thing at the NC State Cypher and also in the recording studio. Before it's all said and done Eternal will prove to everyone that he's a great emcee, artist, and visionary for hip hop."

"Eternal is an educated and talented artist educated to his craft. Each song I hear shows exponential growth from the last. I know he will go far by positively impacting people's lives while entertaining them." -
