The fourth track off of Q’s fourth album, Blank Face LP. The first part, Groovy Tony, was the first single for the album. The album version features a verse from Jadakiss.
The music video for Groovy Tony was released on 4th April 2016.
Part II of the track, titled Eddie Kane is a reference to the character Eddie Kane from the musical – drama film The Five Heartbeats, directed and co – written by Robert Townsend. In the film, Eddie Kane was one of the lead singers in a Motown/Soul inspired group titled The Five Heartbeats .
Eddie receives critical acclaim, wealth and fame with the group but eventually falls out by abusing drugs and battling inner demons. He later overcomes them.
In the first verse, Q draws parallels to Eddie’s downfall, but as a wealthy and successful dope dealer who is met with an unfortunate collapse as cops arrest him.
In the second verse, Q continues to draw parallels to Kane by painting a portrait of his life – talent and potential hindered by hardship. However, much like Kane, he overcomes his demons in the end.
The hook is performed much like how Kane sang in the movie – an illuminating, raspy voice that could fill an entire arena.
Groovy Tony can be seen as the unhinged, reckless thrill of his former life, while Eddie Kane shows its collapse and then rejuvenation, much like how the life of Eddie Kane is portrayed in the movie, The Five Heartbeats.
In short, while the character Eddie Cain/Kane, from The Five Heartbeats (Born Eddie King Jr.) was a cocaine addict, Groovy Tony sold it.
