The ILLZ - Amnesia, Forget it All

Posted 6 years ago
Tags: The ILLZ
Producer:
Rekevin
Album:
We Got Next EP (Mixed by DJ Quiz)

Is it just me, or is there a refreshingly smooth, jazzy vibe in the Booth today? First The Kid Daytona‘s mellow single, On the Hill and now Amnesia, Forget It All, up-and-coming emcee The ILLZ’ contribution to SoulRebelNYC and HipHopDX‘s forthcoming compilation EP. As usual, the Jersey native (and exclusive freestyle series alum) looks outside the hip-hop world for production – this time, he borrows a lush instrumental from Forget Him, a track by Moscow jazz/downtempo group Rekevin. Those who aren’t immediately hypnotized by the beat (and frontwoman Ksenia Istenko‘s silky chorus vocals) will hear rhymes as insightful as any we’ve heard from ILLZ. Hilariously, the emcee takes the opportunity to address a comment made by a certain Booth regular/crew member on one of his previous features: “I read a dude somewhere comment that I’m the rap version of Staind / Dog, are you insane?” Don’t worry, I’m not naming names (not that you couldn’t, um, Google it). Anyway, fans can find new tunes from a variety of talented up-and-comers on the DJ Quiz-mixed We Got Next EP, scheduled to drop on the 27th.
