Portland, Oregon duo Illmaculate and OnlyOne present “Nobody”, the new single from Only & Ill, their forthcoming album featuring Crooked I, Yukmouth, Hippie Sabotage and Sapient. Illmaculate won 2004’s Scribble Jam (the youngest emcee ever to do so), two World Rap Championships and this year’s King Of The Dot title. Illmaculate has collaborated with Macklemore (click here to listen to the “Letterhead” remix and here to listen to “Do It Themselves”), Inspectah Deck (click here to listen to “How You Do That”) and Tech N9ne (click here to listen to “Go Study”).
Illmac and OnlyOne together have accrued over 16 million Youtube views and have toured nationally and internationally alongside Mos Def, E-40, Wu-Tang Clan, Aesop Rock, Yelawolf, Lupe Fiasco and Slaughterhouse. “We just wanted to convey the profound message of ‘Y’all ain’t shit’ and do it in the dopest way possible with this one,” Ill says of the new single, which is produced by Slug/Royce Da 5’9″ collaborator Chase Moore. Illmaculate and OnlyOne are currently on the Angels Bathwater US Tour with Myke Bogan, Goldini Bagwell and DJ Spark.
Only & Ill drops September 18.
