The sampler highlights the myriad sounds and flavors that have influenced Ill Bill ranging from edgy metal guitar parts to the raw hip-hop beats and production seen on every featured track. An Ill Bill verse has never been an aimless journey through 16 bars, but rather a threatening configuration of worldview, conspiracy theories, street corner politics and real-life experiences, and this album is no exception. Topics such as the war in Iraq, the unsettling and disturbing subject of racism, the senseless shootings at Virginia Tech University, the state execution of Stanley “Tookie” Williams and countless others surface, minus any air of exploitation, but with a slash of brutal awareness of challenging times.
