Illa J x Calvin Valentine “Home”

via 2DBz

words by Meka


Whereas his self-titled 2015 album was recorded in Montreal, Illa J headed to Hollywood, CA to create what would be his new album Home.

The new locale has also inspired a new sound from Illa, as he is focusing on his talents as a singer-songwriter for this go-round. Produced in its entirety by Calvin Valentine, Home aims to take listeners on a trip to Illa’s his hometown of Detroit, Michigan. The title track is a shining reflection of such, as Illa channels his inner Station Wagon P and hits a falsetto throughout the soul-sampling track.
