iLL Vibes Presents: "Music I Wish Was on the Radio Vol. 2"

. Mar 9, 2009

Now I released "Music I Wish Was on the Radio Volume 1" cause I feel like I had to get out good music out and Volume 2 flows off that same sentiment. Although a lot of dope artists are finally getting some recognition like Wale (signed to Interscope), Theophilus London (getting love on Fader/Rolling Stone), Mickey Factz (cover of XXL and Honda commercial, Big Sean with G.O.O.D. music, etc. the radio still is settling for some foolish tracks (i.e. "Stanky Leg" ---> I'm pretty open-minded and I hate that ish). There is real music out there and it needs to be discovered.

I think it is best said by Melo-X on his Day N Nite remix "Google Alerts" featured on this mixtape, he said, "Nas said Hip Hop was dead, silly n*gga was listening to the radio..." It is true, so take a deep listen to this mixtape, listen to Mickey rap about the recession on "Sensibility", listen to Blu spit about the reason why he is making music on "Dancing in the Rain", check out Big Sean's creative flow on "Supa Dupa" and listen to lyricism and beats coming out of the DMV with Ice the Villian, X.O., Pro'verb, Lyriciss, and my man AB the Producer.
Each of the artists on this compilation has something special to offer like Drake's talented style switching from singing to rapping to the crazy young yet old school flow coming from 16 year old Nero. I hope you guys enjoy the mixtape, and please show love if you do cause it took alot for me to pick out these tracks. There is so much music flowing out there in the world today and only a few can make it.

With that being said. The cover art is inspirated by the date this joint is coming out on...Biggie's anniversary. Check out Termanology's track "Bars 4 Stars" with Skyzoo and Reks to hear a SWEET sample of Biggie Smalls. Rest in Peace Big and bump these iLL Vibes yall....
