The ILLZ - Cover Me (I’m Going In)

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
ILL Tal
Album:
Let it Fall: The Pursuit LP 1.5

As much as I like the lighter side of hip-hop, I always enjoy a hard track when it comes into my inbox. So if you’re like me, you’ll definitely appreciate the diamond-hard track that New Jersey representer The ILLZ has put together for your listening pleasure. With new single Cover Me (I’m Going In), the Freestyle Series alum takes a page out of the growing cross-genre trend in hip-hop and teams up with producer Ill Tal (are they perhaps related?) for a dark banger that prominently samples indie rock/electro darlings La Roux and the Skream Remix to their hit record In for the Kill. Lyrically ILLZ, well, goes in, continuing his push for recognition as one of the game’s most innovative and talented artists: “So you can say that I’m the opposite of you, I’m trying to say that you’re the opposite of truth.” If you liked the poundingly poetic vibe on this one, be sure to check out his latest project, Let it Fall: The Pursuit LP 1.5, set to drop sometime in November.
