After 2 years, The Boy Illinois resurfaces with the essence of a classic project that displays his perspective of Chicago. After recruiting major producers HearonTrackz (Shawnna, Kanye West), J Bravo (Waka Flocka, Chaz French), Lord Haiti, Sounds By Coop & More, “Illi” garners the essence of growth and development with WINDY. Used as a metaphor to describe Chicago, WINDY is a mixture of raw vibes, lyricism and catchy hooks that carry the project in its entirety. Tracks such as Cool ft. Saba create a unique vibe along with Run It ft. Rico Reckelzz add a wavey edge to the story line.
The newly Priority Records affiliate shows that he is ready for the majors and isnt backing down anytime soon. The initial track “Didn’t I” sets the tone for the project while that tenacity is carried til the end with favorite bonus track “100.” While WINDY encompasses the many aspects of Chicago, this is a project not to be slept on and Illi shows that he perfect storm waiting to happen.
