The third studio album from Australian hip hop sensation Illy comes in the form of Bring It Back, described by the popular emcee as “a heart album”. Reflective of the scene behind the genre, Bring it Back is largely a collaborative album, including all manner of vocal and production guests.
Having built his friendships and networks over a fruitful career thus far, Illy set about selecting vocal appearances from both well-known and underground emcees, Bring It Back features Pez, Thundamentals, Reason, Mantra, Grey Ghost, Raven, and more. Production credits going to M-Phazes, Trails, Taku, Billy Hoyle, and One Above.
Lyrically Illy employs hindsight to explain the existence of his current philosophies on the industry, relationships, envy, and creativity, as well as the odd trademark braggadocio anthem thrown in for good measure. As polished as ever, Bring it Back showcases Illy’s aptitude for engaging penmanship and resonant song formation to flawless effect.
