St. Louis, Missouri
New music here from illphonics, hip hop collective out of St. Louis with their music video '96to99'. The message behind this song is easy to relate to and refreshing to hear in 2016. Hip hop is a very influential genre and it was nice to be reminded of some of our favorite rappers and media outlets. The kid with the disc man in the video walking past the spray painted names was a great look.
Musically, the song songs great as well. The production is diverse with many instruments and the singing over the chorus adds another element as well. This song is a blend of musicality and emceeing and it goes together perfectly. Be sure to watch '96to99' above and let us know what you think in the comments below!
