AUDIO: Ill Poetic’s “Fingertip”


Something new from Ill Poetic has a slightly curious title for it. It’s a song called “Fingertip”, which for him is not something entirely brand new, but is part of a project that had taken ten years to put together. One thing lead to another, he then stopped and moved on to other things. He then revisited that project and thought that it may be a good idea to develop it into something else. This is the end result so have a listen to the “Fingertip”, and just the tip.

FREE MP3 DL: Fatal Prose’s “Black Soap”

It’s rare that I get spoken word artists on my website, even though I am and have been a fan, but I’d like to introduce to you an artist who goes by the name Fatal Prose. This track was actually done ten years ago and comes from a full length album produced by Ill Poetic. Why this track has surfaced now is because of some of the issues happening in the world, specifically in the United States, and it’s not only that it’s timely, but it’s an every day thing that people need to know, if they didn’t already. No word on if the album will resurface again or if Fatal Prose will do new work so if you like it, reply.

VIDEO: Ill Poetic featuring Rideout’s “Hourglass”


Taking a sample from Earth, Wind & Fire’s 1973 album Head To The Sky album is a plus in my book, and that’s exactly what Ill Poetic has done in his song “Hourglass”, not only using “Keep Your Head To The Sky” but the incredibly funky “Zanzibar”. The track, which also features Rideout, is taken from Poetic’s EP Synesthesia: The Yellow Movement, released in 2012.

FREE MP3 DL: Ill Poetic’s “Main Street Mission”

Sometimes releasing a music has more to do than just being a promotional tool for the artist and the song itself. Sometimes there is a goal involved. This is how Ill Poetic describes “Main Street Mission”:
My wife and I got in the habit of buying $5 gift cards to fast food spots and keeping them in the car to give to homeless people when we hit an intersection. With a $5 giftcard to Wendys, especially in this weather, you can get 2-5 meals which at least guarantees a warm place to hang out for as long as possible. Every time we do this, this “Main Street Mission” song I made a little while ago pops up in my head, so I figured now would be a good time to drop it. This isn’t a corny “help the homeless” Will.I.am song. Just a reminder that it’s cold as shit outside and some people have way more to worry about for the holidays than Black Friday sales.

If you can, donate a turkey, ham, or roast to your local mission this weekend. It will do you no harm.

Get a pinch of The Weeknd, throw in a sliver of nine inch nails and what do you get? For Ill Poetic, you get your everyday “Thursday”, or what he has subtitled “(Loveshit)”. The man is in love, and he’s sharing those emotions in song.

He also has an Indiegogo project going on with about 28 hours left to reach his goal, so if you like the song and want to put up something for the cause, check it out below.

The good hip-hop in 2013 continues with this. Ill Poetic puts together a song called “Clap”, and not only does he bring in Illogic of Greenhouse, but Young Zone. This is too ill, or is that “two ill” and a youngin’?

The song is a part of Ill Poetic’s Silhouette project, which he currently has up as an Indiegogo project. If you’d like to contribute, do so.
