After stepping back into the studio with producer and label owner Inos at the start of the year, they have created an instant classic, boom-bap hip hop as it should be! DJ MistaCrowe again features heavily with his insanely technical cuts and scratches and has appeared on all of Tommy's previous releases.
The video was filmed in Peterborough UK, by Kieran Steels (aka KSTEELFILMS) and shows a selection of scenes from the day to day life of ill Gramr, including painting graffiti and tattooing. Also heavily features his much loved XL american pitbulls which are a massive part of his life. All filming, directing and editing done by Kieran Steels. (KSTEELSFILMS)
Setting the scene….
In a post apocalyptic world, where talentless mumble rappers have been allowed to thrive unchallenged, 4TC records introduces the last hope for the survival of real hiphop! Ill Gramr returns on a mission to bring back that classic hiphop sound!
In a baron landscape void of life, inhabited by shambling “mumblers”; brain-dead, talentless socalled “rappers”, those who can only be distinguished by a staggering low IQ, the inability to string a coherent sentence together and cups of lean, through the cacophony of mass hysteria and panic, a transmission has been discovered. Citizen T, our one hope and saviour, has a cure. Amidst the pandemic which has ravished our once glorious music scene is an antidote to the virus, one that can reverse the cause of idiocy that has infected and spread throughout the population; the 4TC Strain.
Ill Gramr will be your guide on this road to salvation. You need only heed his advice and follow him through the rising bodies of the mumble rappers, wading through the grills and cough syrup, multicoloured hair and men in mini skirts… Follow the boom bap beats and the lyrical flows as they shall see you restored once more.
