So much in the works as Illa J lets me know hes got new music coming and Phife Dawg links with him and Redman for “French Kiss Deux.” which will appear on Phife’s long-delayed posthumous album, Forever. We chat about his 10,000 hour journey, his parents' influence on his music and the legacy of his brother, J Dilla. Meshing pop/R&B, with occasional rhymes, Illa J’s songs are carried by a summery, almost doo-wop vibe a lot of the time, while still held in the embrace of the music that raised him. So it's important we understand all of these elements so we can appreciate the new direction and sound that will emerge from his studio this year. Tap in.
