If you were old enough to comprehend cop dramas in the 1980s, you may have fond memories of Hill Street Blues. I wasn’t alive during its run, so I couldn’t tell you whether STS’ latest feature, Ill Street Blues has more in common with the series than 14/15ths of a title, but I can tell you that this newly-leaked mixtape cut has one dope ensemble cast. Over Trackmasters’ swingin’ jazz samples (not the show’s theme song, if you were wondering), the dual ATL/Philly representative is joined by fellow Philly natives Black Thought (of The Roots), Truck North and Dice Raw, together known as the Money Making Jam Boys. There’s too much talent on display here for me to pick a favorite verse, so I’ll just quote the headliner’s contribution: “Every verse immaculate, and that’s from the conception...” Those digging this all-star collaborative track straight outta the City of Brotherly Love can find Ill Street Blues, as well as previously-featured tracks F*ck a Hook and Parachute, on STS’ Demand More 2 mixtape,
