Various Artists Iller Sessions

  • Words: Max Herman
  • Label: Bomb Hip-Hop
  • XLR8R Rating: 6/10

Seattle’s Iller clothing and San Francisco’s Bomb Hip-Hop imprint unite here for a compilation centered around good old-fashioned beats and rhymes. While there’s no blatant concept to this disc, the true-school sound reigns supreme. The consistency can be attributed to the frequent production of Bean One (Luckyiam, Jurassic 5, Supernatural) and an assembly of “keep it true” acts, which includes golden-era greats (Black Sheep, Large Professor) and a few new-school MCs (Ra Scion, TruFam) as well. Bean One and Company occasionally throw a curve ball, like on Dyme Def’s hyphy-flavored single “Rebel2TheGrain,” but those looking for next-level material might want to keep searching.

I bought this album a few days ago. It is the best album I have ever heard. If all raps groups and labels followed what these guys are doing then rap would be good again. Too bad the labels don't know about Iller, they deffinately know what they are doing. Chippy
