Seattle is a strange place for hip-hop, mainly known for it’s riveting MC’S Blue Scholars, weirdo trip-hop duo Shabazz Palaces, and, uh Macklemore. Then there’s Tacoma, approximately 30 minutes south of Seattle (according to Google Maps) and the unlikely birthplace of Washington’s rowdiest hip-hop trio ILLFIGHTYOU.
The crew consists of rapper and producer Khris P, Evergreen One and UGLYFRANK. Together, the three of them spit over some of the most headnodding, sub-woofer blowing and most banging-est beats of 2013. With a production range from dread-shaking Atlanta trap music, to the grimiest NYC boom-bap beats, IFY have the chops to drop bars over it all.
Tracks like “Bandaid” and “Threats” deliver the fire and energy to incite a riot, while tunes “92” and “Brooklyn” remind you that these dudes can really rap.
