Newest Album release from Richmond Virginia's own, OG ILLA. I myself have watched ILLA grow from his first project, "!lliteracy" to "L.O.V.E", "Marijuana Made" to this current release. And I all have seen is growth as he untaps his potential in every effort. This album displays a more 'Ratchet' side of ILLA but the talent is definitely there as he coasts on tracks like "Go Up" featuring long-time friend and label mate, Ms. Proper and Ponce DeLeioun, which is one of my favorite tracks on the album. This album has some crazy bangers, though I believe some of the records didn't need features such as "Another One" featuring Dr. Millionare where I feel, Millionare's voice is a bit too barratone for my liking on the record...just me? Oh well.
All I have to say is keep it up ILLA! Keep folks on their toes as these locals don't see that expanding your fanbase consists of switching it up from time to time to stay relevant in this particular culture!
