Illa Ghee dropping street tales on his new single, Gripped Up, which is a single from the forthcoming album, Suede Cigarettes. Its that lyrical toughness that we expect from Ghee .
Social Grafitti (dropping July 18th) is shaping up t be one hell of an album. Every track that I have heard from the project has been top notch. What I love about this Illa Ghee track is it shows that he can not only flip over classic bangers, but that he can drop the same skills on a more laid back joint. Of course it doesn’t hurt that the laid back joint of which I speak is produced on the back of a legend, Large Professor! Definitely make sure you peep the album!
Illa Ghee make us fiend for the album with his release of the single, Salute The General. This track by DJ Skizz is saturated in the realness which suits Illa Ghee just fine because that’s his M.O. He has a real nice flow, where at the end he promises to bust all shots on the “skinny jean” culture. I am all for that. His album Social Graffiti is dropping in the second quarter of this year. Fakes and frauds beware!

Note:The clean/edited version of Inglorious Beta dropped last year, minus the bonus cuts that you see on this current version. It was worth reviewing back then but it didn’t feel complete with the censorship. Now on, April 26th 2011, K-Beta unleashes the project as it was originally intended to be listened to, four letter words and all. I put the date in the post so you can write it down. It is the day somebody released a rare, classic album. I feel like once a year you will see an album that embodies the word “classic”. Last year it was The Left for their product, Gas Mask. Now, K-Beta’s Inglorious Beta needs to be mentioned in the same category.
