Now I don’t know for sure if Gods’Illa named themselves after the city destroying Godzilla or, you know, God, but considering their monstrous talent and ethereal sound, either way the trio of newcomers picked a damned appropriate name. On their debut Booth feature, the three actual brothers Acem, Truth and Powerful (beat those names, Jonas Brothers) give us a taste of their abilities on Protect It (Roddyrod Remix). While the original gave listeners a nice brass background to work with, here producer Roddyrod delivers a grittier version of the track with his distorted and creative remix. On the mic ‘Illa manages to spread the talent around on the single, letting each artist drop the kind of lyrical bombs that make me think that a De La Soul or Gorillaz collaboration could be in their near future. If you liked this track smashing through your living room, be sure to check out their latest project, Up and Up Presents…Gods’Illa: The Album, out now.
