iLLA - Better

Young Asap
iLLA freEP

Did you dig How Did This Happen?, the Booth-sponsored debut set by Portland duo Moxie Black? Then you Better not sleep on the latest solo project from iLLA, the vocal half of the rapper/producer duo. The first leak off the artist’s forthcoming “FreEP” is a decidedly chill affair, with Young Asap‘s head-noddably mellow synth-bell boardwork setting the stage for a little soulful stunting from the Northwestern up-and-comer. Using Wu-Tang classic C.R.E.A.M. as a creative springboard, the emcee adresses a special lady, explaining that, though his silver spoon-free upbringing has made him protective of his bankroll, he’s perfectly willing to “blow some gwop” on anything that’ll make her happy – whether it’s a tropical vacation or a name-brand accessory, she need only ask and it’s hers. Money can’t buy you Booth approval but, with more high-quality tunes, iLLA has every chance of earning a special place in readers’ hearts and iPods. But enough from me – what do you think? Those craving more should keep it locked for the latest on the artist’s Booth-sponsored iLLA freEP, set to hit our mixtape page in early 2011.
