Sinister, hard, violent, brutal, all fitting descriptions which correctly summarize the first full project from ILLFIGHTYOU, a group based out of Tacoma, Washington and consisting of EVERGREENONE, Ugly Frank and Khris P, with production fully handled by KReam Team. This is not the type of project you would expect to hear from a city only 30 miles away from the hometown of hip-hop’s current obnoxious pop star Macklemore. In fact, the only connection this album has with the Seattle based rapper, is the image of angst filled teenagers blaring ILLFIGHTYOU through head phones, while bullying his fans for their thrift stores clothes. EVERGREENONE and Ugly Frank’s lyrics are straightforward, brutal and completely unapologetic, creating a listening experience reminiscent of viewing footage of the LA riots from the 90′s. This, in combination with KReam Team’s dark, murky productions, ranging from boom bap to trap stylings, makes for a soundtrack fit for the shadiest of society’s characters.
