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.
This is the first song featured on DJBooth from this artist. If you would like to hear more, be sure to rate and comment!
