New EP: PhiLLaNOise [Phil G + Jay iLLa] – Feel The Noise

| October 10, 2014 | 0 Comments


Entirely produced by Rashid Hadee

Man, iLLa and Phil went ahead and dropped this album yesterday and didn’t even tell me. Shame on them. Ha! Anyhoo, this dynamic duo have been teasing the public with free treats over the past few months, but now offer up the project for purchase (you can stream before you buy, natch.) It’s only $5 so I urge you to spend a few bucks to support the cause.

You may be thinking this is some “He’s The DJ, I’m The Rapper” type EP, but actually both artists are rapping throughout. The album is seven songs deep, and was produced entirely by criminally underrated Chi City beatsmith, Rashid Hadee. It’s time to feel their noise below. What are you waiting for?

Keep an open eye for Elementz’s new album, Open Bar, which is due out on October 28th, featuring Dawreck, J. Hollins, G-Count, Scheme Navarro and others; as well as production from Nascent & QB, Trox and Wes P.
