It's been a fairly quiet year in hip hop, but Brooklyn rhymer Illa Ghee is planning to shake things up in his favour. July 18th marks the release of Ghee's third solo length project, Social Graffiti, and between the Large Professor assisted "90" and the slamming "Speak to 'Em," it certainly won't be a resume padder. With an enigmatic yet hilarious verse from Sean Price, who references the Jim Crow laws and King Kong with that gully delivery we can't get enough of, it's a track that stems from a Scarface-like mentality; Ghee and Price don't have to throw money around to show you that they're still making moves on the streets of BK. Lyrically, Ghee is on point as always with these heavyweight bars over this classy horn backdrop from Crummie Beats. This track comes together so well that Hannibal Smith would be proud.
With features from Fame, O.C., and Guilty Simpson, as well as beats from Ayatollah and Team Demo, Social Graffiti will be the one to watch. Hit that play button and show Illa Ghee some love by pre-ordering the album for more slick tracks.
