An English teacher would tell you that, if something’s already The Illest, it can’t get any iller. But when did a hip-hop artist ever let grammar stop them from bringing something dope into the world? Featured, in its original form, back in May of 2013, this mixtape single has received the remix treatment courtesy of DJ E-Mix and a pair of high-profile guests. Over Wallpaper‘s syncopated percussion, synths and buzzing woodwinds, Kev Nish and original guest Riff Raff are joined by ATL hitmaker B.o.B. and TDE phenom ScHoolboy Q. Have the Los Angeles reppers succeeded in making this rendition even sicker than its prototype? As always, y’all get to lay down the final verdict. You’ll find both versions of The Illest on Far East Movement’s upcoming KTown Riot LP. Keep it locked for further release details on the set, which currently lacks a drop date.
