Sometimes, it’s all in the voice. The ILLZ’s voice haunts me. It’s brooding and unmistakable, thundering like the dark beats he tends to rap over. That’s why this video for “The Moment You Feel Definitive Hope” is the perfect treatment. He sometimes sounds like he’s recording in a dark abyss and is the only man that can hear his voice, making it feel like you’re listening to his internal monologue more than hearing him perform.
His LP,The Pursuit has been getting some considerable burn, playing when I need to get my energy right to write and gather my thoughts. I don’t know where these samples come from, but each beat is smooth as hell, creating excellent mood music.
