It’s been a long minute since I heard from the OG Illa Ghee (remember Alchemist‘s Hold you down?). Apparently he’s been putting it down and now has a new project- Social Graffiti-dropping this year. On this single,’Salute The General‘ he teams up with Fame (of M.O.P) bringing back the army fatigues and Timberland boots over an ominous DJ Skizz backdrop.
Tune in and get with the program.
From starter jackets to Air Force 1’s, fashion trends are a dime a dozen in the world of Hip-Hop. Though styles and influence may change, one thing is for sure: you’ll never catch Illa Ghee in a pair of skinny jeans. On the hunt for trend setters with a certain penchant for swag rap, “Salute The General” is the conscription for emcees of the Golden Era to ban together on the war against weak lyrics and generic beats. With M.O.P’s Fame dropping bombs as Ghee bodies the competition with reckless abandon, the track fires some well deserved shots towards those that aim to cheapen the culture. “Salute The General” produced by DJ Skizz is one of the many bangers you can expect to find on Illa Ghee’s forthcoming full length LP Social Graffiti, set to drop in the beginning of the 2nd quarter, this year.
