Three album releases in just one year. Ill Smith is a lyrical nightmare to those who sold out to tarnish his name. A little known fact. Ill Smith, the name was created in the early 1980s at the young age of 6. According to Ill “People have been hating ever since.” I could see the anger in his eyes and here the years of pain in his voice.
The Album “Eternity” which was released late last year is the new cornerstone to the Hip-Hop industry above and below ground. With tracks like “Zone Ice” & “So Real”, Ill has already changed the perspective of Mainstream, Trap, and Indie Hip-Hop genres. “What can be perceived is a true try at perfection, I got somethin that real niggaz wanna hear all the way from the hardest rock listener to the easiest listener. I got somethin to hear.”
Ill is going to release his 3rd Album Titled “iPhrophecy Paid” later this year. He also is adding a few more well-known features. Judging by what we’ve already heard. It should be worth a listen.
