With his next release Pointe (New Age Colonialism), The Boy Illinois drops the first single “BLACKMALE” featuring Trae Tha Truth and Twista as three contrasting styles looking to mesh on one track.
Boy Illinois starts the ball rolling with a flow that adapts well to producer C.O.O.P.’s shape-shifting beat. Trae holds down the middle of the lineup adequately but it may be Tongue Twista who shines the hardest here. Don’t blink, otherwise his verse will blow right past. With all the lyrical dexterity on display, it’ll definitely take a handful of listens to fully grasp how ill the track is as a whole.
