The homie and blog regular Nolan The Ninja lets loose a stream of his sophmore album The Ill Shit. The homie is always coming through with quality music. Check it out.
His sophomore release, “The Ill Sh-t,” sews the pages from classic hip hop manifestos into Nolan’s own set of 14 songs. He and producer 5ynot’s minimalist sound beds preserve the boom bap era and give Nolan’s hoarse, sharp-tongued raps about industry monotony and artistic struggles room to roam.
“I just wanted to take hip-hop back to a time where emcees were known for just being ill and only coming hard with that Ill shit,” he says.
Fellow Detroit emcees such as Clear Soul Forces member Noveliss (“Antidote”), crewmate Chavis Chandler (“The Books”), and Fat Killahs’ members Marv-Won and Fatt Father (“Mahogany,” “Clout”) all lend their voices to further round out the album.
