Illa J – “Universe”

blame it on Shake June 23, 2015

In need of a creative and geographical change, Detroit’s Illa J packed his bags and ventured up to Montreal, Canada. The move seemed to be an appropriate one too, as Dilla’s brother linked up with production duo Potatohead People for a pair of 2dope cuts earlier in the year – which turned out to be the initial building blocks to the trio’s idea of a full project.

With a October 2nd release set, the album will also feature additional production from fellow Montreal native Kaytranada and Noo Bap. \

Check out the lead single “Universe” below.
