A dual representative of Rochester, New York, and Washington, D.C., rapper Illanoise aims to “bring the East back, one bar at a time.” On his latest street mixtape, Rooftop Vol. 1, Illa has scooped up Konvict duo and Virgin Islanders, Rock City, to help Tell U Again about his master plan to take over the rap game. Vocally, no one artist outshines the others, but rather all play off of producer Styles (not P), who contributes a solid mid-tempo organ instrumental. Whether the Northeast will be “brought back” as a result of Illanoise’s efforts, however, still remains to be seen.
