After several months off from his previous tour, The Boy Illinois is gunning for “Rookie of the Year” in hip hop. While working on his upcoming release Home Court Advantage, “Illi” has been making noise throughout the city and the country.
On his latest release ‘Paper’ featuring Lyriq, Illi kicks off the song with the melodic hook and smooth flow. This song speaks to the independent woman, making money and moves, Lyric elevates the track not judging how she gets it whether it be on the pole or boardroom.
Their back and forth responses, shows an organic chemistry between Lyric and The Boy Illinois. The lazy cadence and R&B feel of the song, gives it an easy listen, but follows up with a strong breakdown at the end of the song. Have a listen below.
