DJBooth freestyle alum The Illz always makes music that astounds the senses (a.k.a. The Pursuit LP), so it’s no wonder that on his new song Energy in Motion the New Jersey representer has translated kinetic energy into sonic movement. The production, of course done by Illz himself, is a somber, deeply layered journey built around a sample of Saltillo’s Giving In, while on the lyrical side of the equation Illz lays down a lyrical manifesto about artistic integrity and remaining true to self: “I ain’t givin in / all these losers hoping I will never win / say my music’s too different / they just scared cause they lack vision.” Ok, so it’s not exactly a go-to for your next house party, but if you’re in the mood for some deeply contemplative and inspiring hip-hop, you’ll be hard pressed to do better. For Energy in Motion and much more dopeness (like Booth approved track My Window) be sure to download DJ QuizQuiz Knows a Mixtape, available across the internets now.
