Late producer/turntablist DJ Devastate’s new single, “Crime After Crime,” is more than a grimy collaboration with Brooklyn rap stalwart Illa Ghee.
It’s a testament to the life and talents of the Swedish artist who long wanted to work with the talented wordsmith.
The track centers on the equally funky and gritty production from Devastate, who also blessed the hook with a stellar fusion of classic Notorious B.I.G. lines from “Suicidal Thoughts” and “Sky’s The Limit.”
And you can just tell that Illa knew exactly what he had to do once he heard it: deliver quotable bars with reckless abandon.
