Ahead of the impending release of his first album in ten years San Diego-based artist Ill Poetic has blessed you all with a free download in the form of Conceived in ’81.
Prolific as both an emcee and a producer, this mixtape features tracks with Ill Po at the forefront, and others from the mind that brought you Red Pill’s critically acclaimed Instinctive Drowning on Mello Music Group.
Conceived in ’81 is a bitesize digest of some of Ill Po’s career highlights, handpicked by the man himself. This mixtape is like the background reading to the album’s final exam – the essential knowledge you need to get you in the right headspace for the big day. Plus there’s one unreleased track for those who already know it all.
Ill Poetic’s new album An Idiot’s Guide to Anarchy is out on 21st November on Definition Music (pre-order available here), but in the meantime, enjoy.
