Illy : Heard It All


Melbourne rapper Illy has won me over with his cunning reverse psychology: “Please forgive me if it all sounds so familiar/I’m sure that you’ve heard this all before/I’m only one voice in a world of billions and no idea’s original no more.” At the end, he’s like, “I’m only one voice but that voice speaks up for y’all.” Jesus man – I don’t know how to process hip hop with genuine humility in it. His third album is due out later this year.
