Song: Poor Excuse
Based: Brooklyn, USA
Stands out: Catchy melody in the hook
‘Poor Excuse’ is a hip-hop track by up and coming Brooklyn based artist Illanoiz.
The production is really tight, featuring signature hip-hop/trap percussion combined with some more experimental instrumentation in terms of synths and keys. Vocally the song is really strong as Illanoiz lays down really sweet melodic singing before jumping right into fast paced rapping and intense lyricism.
Check out the track below.
“The subject matter on this particular song mostly boils down to the usual street tales and insights into the hood and the mind of a bootstrapper trying to make it out. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do.”
