The homie !llmind first appeared on my radar when he used to post on UGHH.com and when he produced the classic track “Remind My Soul” for hometown hero Akrobatik. He’s continued to make heatrocks throughout the better part of a decade for a laundry list of my favorite artists and I kept up with his output over the years via Okayplayer & Rappers I Know.
His new instrumental LP “Behind The Curtain” drops digitally and physically on Tuesday via Nature Sounds along with the audio stems from each track included. There was a remix contest involved with this album & here is the link to part one of a promotion video series in which !llmind tells his back story in detail. I met dude in Brooklyn @ the Fat Beats pop up shop for Record Store Day & apologized for never making it to one of his B.L.A.P. events before he rocked. I heard the album, it’s outraaaaaaaaaaaageeous! © Lionel Richie. Cop it!
