A rising beatsmith who calls the Windy City home, A-Villa makes his grand entrance into The DJBooth with the grimy lead single off his forthcoming solo set. As its title indicates, The Warrior, The Philosopher & the Rebel finds the headliner enlisting a trio of talented homies to rock the mic. M.O.P. rhymesayer Lil Fame contributes a two-fisted opener, Queensbridge mainstay Cormega gets reflective on the middle, and Killer Mike closes proceedings on a fiery, irreverent note. A-Villa’s appropriately bombastic instrumental features sampled brass fanfare, elements from Mountain’s oft-flipped Long Red break and a hook borrowed from Ghostface‘s Criminology. Feeling it? Then stay tuned for more fresh singles leading up to the September 23, release of Carry on Tradition.
