Ilyas Nashid has been putting in work for a minute now. After dropping the single “Away Too Long” and a mix tape with DJ Pillo, the long awaited Transformation Part 1: Ego is now out for all to digest. The 11 track project aptly reflects the life and times of Ilyas as he presents a sombre narrative for the listeners to latch on to. The other brilliance is having QUintessence James craft the entire project giving it a pretty solid cohesiveness- soulful, head nodding with a vintage touch.
All I have to say is go out and get the album because it is worth every dime. Cop it HERE
