Erk Tha Jerk has received major radio spins, amassed hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube, has had a video in rotation on MTV2, and has performed around the country – all without a debut album in stores. No longer, as today marks the release ofNerd's Eye View, the long-awaited debut release from the self-proclaimed Hood Nerd. To celebrate the album, Erk is releasing, “Reach The Top” featuring J. Myers, a track that offers insight and triumphant proclamations from an artist both reaching a new career plateau and striving harder still to continue on an upward progression.

“I wanted people to hear a detailed description of my story,” says Erk, who also produces and directs his own videos. “Where I came from – not the streets, but growing up as a kid; what the neighborhood looked like and how that helped shape me.” Producer Invasion provides the Richmond, California rapper with a wonderfully soulful backdrop to tell that story, as Erk raps lines like, “I am straight from the bottom/ The struggle, it's not a problem/ New Jordan's, I never got 'em/ My momma couldn't afford 'em/ My father was talking mortgage/ 16, I started wilding,” and “Knew I was gonna shine even when my girl didn't/ And look y'all, it's happening just like Gerald said it/ So to my city, I'm just trying to put you on,” giving listeners a chance to view the world through Erk's signature wide rimmed glasses.
