Single You Out: Al-One – Legends Of The Fall (ft. Illmaculate & Theory Hazit)

This song is sharp. It’s got everything you need in a hip hop cut for 2017. The bars from Al-One, Illmac, and Theory Hazit are all primo quality. And the beat from Rey Holliday is pretty special in it’s own right. It’s got some soul, funk, and boom bap wrapped inside.

Al-One’s, Sharptongue, drops next week, and I am pretty sure it’s going to be special. Stay tuned.

Single You Out: Illmac – Second Wind (prod. by Chase Moore)

Illmac and Chase Moore team up again and release abounding goodness with the single, Second Wind. And forgive me, but if Illmac needed a second wind, he didn’t show it. He has been killing the game. And if he has gotten a second wind then the rest of the industry should be put on notice. This song is something else. If you are blessed with a nice day today, roll the windows down in the whip, and ride to this. This is certain dope!

Single You Out: Illmaculate – Oscar Nominee b/w Excuses

Oscar Nominee serves as the second and most recent single from Illmaculate’s upcoming EP, Still Standing.  A dope song that features production from long time collaborator, Chase Moore.

I would probably have an Oscar for acting like gave a fuck… I am sorry but no apologies…

Excuses was of course the first single from the same EP.  The beat from Moore on this joint is a creeper.  It just embeds itself in your head and stalks the mind.  Illmaculate, meanwhile,   writes and executes a couple of dope verses.  Guest, Bobby Bucher, tackles a third verse that make me reminiscent of Devin The Dude in cadence and flow.

Single You Out:Goldini Bagwell – Virtual Reality (ft. Illmaculate & David Lincoln Mann)

Goldini Bagwell is back with another cut from his Smoker’s Jacket series this time bringing into the fold, well accomplished compatriot Illmaculate.  Virtual Reality is a trippy journey that looks at relationships it what almost seems like an out of body experience. The track is sponsored by Chase Moore.

 

Single You Out: Goldini Bagwell – Over Do (prod. by Smoke M2D6)

Goldini Bagwell continues with his Smoker’s Jacket Series with some more laid back, lyrical goodness.   This is probably my favorite track thus far from the series.  All of the music has been relatively laid back but I find this one to be exceptionally accessible.  Bagwell narrates and the listener is captivated.  This seems to be a resounding theme with the music he makes.

Illmaculate & OnlyOne – GATTACA (Official Music Video) feat. J-Rome

OnlyOne and Illmaculate are known for making great music but this cut is among the most premium.   This is just some really good music period.   Chase Moore continues the string of flawless production with this concoction and J-Rome blesses the hook to complete the effect.  Meanwhile the two emcees drop incessantly dope lyricism that will at moment leave you a little slack jawed.

This is just a pre-emptive strike of what’s to come when they drop their album this summer, Only & Ill.
