Ill Poetic is the Girl Talk of Cincinnati with a voice of his own. We are proud to present the new hip-hop representation. An artist whose inspirations in album production range from Trent Reznor to Jay Dilla,
Ill Poetic distributes his mash-up albums via free download with the rest of his brethren. Most recently, his work includes a crossbreed of Joe Budden and Portishead (never thought I’d speak those words in the same sentence) titled Mood Music’sThird and a Nine Inch Nails and Outkast trip-hop sampling record called Nine Inch Nailiens (obvious much?). In the hip-hop community, he’s been tagged by VIBE and Rolling Stone, while locally, he’s been nominated for several awards due to skills both on the mic and on the boards....
He breaks down the wall or boredom that most people perceive Underground Hip-Hop to be, and brings us a soulful, nearly classic album, with very few missteps.
