Illasophic


The All Deadly

This file was originally posted in the comments of an earlier post, but then that file expired, and then when I tried to re-up it, that file was corrupt - and since it's so damn fly I figured I might as well give it its own post. Here are the cassette-only tracks to Jizzm's Illasophic Vol. 1, from 1998. These gems are wonderfully raw and distorted and murky, taking you back to the good old days. It's truly a shame that they didn't get re-released on CD - these leftovers are easily an equal to the greatness that was on the CD reissue. If they had been included, Illasophic 1.5 would have made a great double disc release. In fact, I think it would be cool if someone took the initiative, compiled Vol. 1 and Vol 1.5 together, and posted it on up. Call it Illasophic Vol. 1.75 or something. But at 38 minutes, this collection could basically be considered an album in itself. Guests include Otherwize on the og version of "Warriors", Dj Drez on "Drezolution", Rob One, Rifleman, Puzoozoo Watt, CVE, Cali Ragz, and others. This was when underground was still underground. An amazing document. Thanks once again to the folks at Ghetto Tyylit for providing some rare-ass stuff and for originally sending the tracks my way.
