Listen to "Closer" by The ILLZ
The ILLZ recently announced via twitter that his upcoming mixtape, The Darkest Hour, will be his last release under "The ILLZ" moniker. As a huge fan of his sound, I'm sad to see this project come to an end. That said, I'm excited to hear singles from his next project and anxiously await it's entire release. One single that caught my ear is "Closer". It features a downtempo guitar and sampled-hook that balance his emotional verses perfectly.
If you've never gave @TheILLZ a listen, I recommend you listen to this single below and check out his debut release, the Pursuit EP....Read More#theillz #thdarkesthour #hiphop #closer 9 months ago |

New Jersey-based emcee @TheILLZ has released the final episode in his Let It Fall series, "Faded". Directed by Kristopher Rey-Talley, the final episode follows The ILLZ as he purchases a gun off the streets to take justice into his own hands. He stalks and follows his girlfriend's murderer to a drug deal and gets revenge. Was it worth it?

"You can reach the masses without sacrificing self, quality, and your overall sound. You just have to be great. Good doesnít cut it anymore with the saturation the internet has caused, nowadays you have to be great. If you truly believe in what you create then push it as much as you can. I read the Bob Lefsetz Newsletter daily and recently he said something that really resonated with me. Focus on creating land mines not rockets. The internet has made it possible for your project to live on even years passed itís release, a tipping point can cause your project from 2007 to blow up seemingly overnight in 2012. Thatís a beautiful thing and you must use it to your advantage. Donít focus too much on quantity and make it more about quality, make your primary focus developing your craft. Nowadays people either like train wrecks or greatness, if youíre just good it will be very difficult to reach the masses. However, more importantly its about creating what you feel and love. Once again, forget about fame and notoriety and create something real, something you can feel. That is whatís going to give you true happiness and satisfaction, if fame and notoriety come with it so be it, thatís just the icing on the cake. Listen to your heart, always remain positive, outside of those providing truly objective constructive criticism donít listen to a word. People always have their own agendas and like to reflect a lot of their own insecurities and issues on to you. Itís very important that you learn how to recognize the ones trying to help you and the ones trying to keep you from achieving something they feel they canít do themselves. Lastly, make sure you have fun, enjoy every moment of it, if you truly want success it will come to you as long as youíre doing everything that is in harmony with that thought. Work smart, have fun, focus, develop a plan, follow the plan, and never sacrifice the quality of your work. Itís that hard and that simple." - #TheILLZ 1 year ago |

A woman in the distance, when I reach her
she starts to speak to me never using one word
she says donít worry things will go as they should
and her stare told me more than any set of words could
she said your competition is weak so never mind them
u were far ahead even when u fell behind them
its all about timing
be glad its on your side
and the sun on that day it arrives, just let it shine in...
