i b4 the 1.1 drops today.
Posted on November 17, 2009
ill-Literacy, the bay area’s favorite spoken word group gone east coast rap trio, drops their first full length album today, i b4 the 1.1
i’m not going to lie and say i know how to pronounce, as you say, this album title. and i haven’t had a chance to listen yet — but when three brilliants like Dahlak Brathwaite, Adriel Luis and N.I.C. gather around a microphone and make art, it’s gotta be special, right? n.i.c. (aka Nico Cary) was my roommate for the initial gestation period, trekking between Oakland and Sacramento California thrice weekly to bring this beast of an album to fruition. if the mumblings i heard while Nic cat-napped on the couch are any indication, the gas and late night were well worth it. plus, you may have already heard two singles from the album, so you’re probably salivating already.
thick wit congratulates the squad on this ill-ustrious occasion.
