“The Gift” features Blueprint, Ill Bill and DJ Johnny Juice discussing what “Family First” means to them. It is a love letter to my son, my family and the universal HIPHOP family. I shot and edited this with help from my wife, learning Adobe Premier and After Effects as I went, so I could share these very special moments in our lives with all of you. This isn’t your typical HIPHOP song, nor is it meant to be a “hit” or a “banger”. It’s simply an incredible beat produced by DJ Johnny Juice and some honest, heart felt words by some very talented artists and a message to my son that I hope he will appreciate later in life.
On May 29th, Adam Wallenta aka Illus will be releasing Family First. A project (that’s explained below) that’s treading new ground as each emcee featured is also the producer of the track they appear on. Guest include Blueprint (check a preview of their cut above), J-Live (which can be seen/heard after the jump), Apathy, Esoteric, Chuuwee, Ill Bill and more.
2012 promises to be a memorable year for Illus, as he and his wife recently welcomed the birth of their first child and his new project, Family First, (due to be released on 5-29-2012) focuses on the shared love of that experience to create 12-tracks that mend meaningful, powerful, heart-felt lyrics to hardcore Hip-Hop production. Family First is a celebration of family and life both in the literal sense and that of the larger global Hip-Hop community and the connection we all have through our children and the spirit, heart, passion and soul of the culture.
Just over one year after the release of Adventures in Counter Culture, Blueprint hits us with some self-directed visuals for track two. Those that still don’t have the album and want a hard copy can hit FifthElement.
