From the dusty crates of a dark corner belonging to a record store comes this excellent piece of work from emcee Peeb The Prophet. Ills Of The Earth is a 6 track EP crafted by producers Phoniks & Blunt One and borrows from rare jazz records with thick boom bap drums to match. Peeb the Prophet is that dude to watch.
Dopeness from start to finish. Hit the play button and don’t forget to support them.
The “Ills Of The Earth” EP is the debut release from Portland, ME emcee Peebs The Prophet and the second official release from Awon & Phoniks new independent label “Don’t Sleep Records”. The project is composed of 6 tracks featuring dark jazzy productions provided by Portland, Maine producer Phoniks and Budapest-based beatsmith Blunt One along with guest verses from Virginia’s Awon and Dephlow. The intricate multisyllabic rhyme schemes and grimy boom bap beats will remind listeners of mid-90’s NYC demo tapes and independent white labels. Limited edition CD’s including all 6 instrumentals will be available via the official Don’t Sleep Records Bandcamp and digital copies will be available for stream/download on Bandcamp, Soundcloud, iTunes, Spotify and more. Press play and zone out. Peace!
