Despite what certain rappers would have you believe, even the poorest neighborhoods in the country are made up of more than just pimps, prostitutes, gangsters and drug dealers—as Illus reminds us, the vast majority are hard-working fathers, mothers, Sons and Daughters, struggling to make their way in the world. On his latest single, the Connecticut native hooks up with guest emcees Eternia, Wordsworth and singer Erin Barra to tell listeners what life is really like in his ‘hood, backed by J.J.Brown‘s smooth sample work. For more, check out Illus’ For Adam LP, available now for purchase in stores and online.
