You know how when an emcee is truly on his game you can literally feel everything he’s saying? That’s the case with “Born Criminal” by Illus. The CT native spits fire over a killer beat that was produced J.J. Brown and features a dope Biggie sample (that’s actually a lyric commercial radio now edits out despite it not having a curse word in it). The intensity of the guitar and the intensity of Illus play off of each other perfectly and the way the video goes from black and white to color is also very cool.

B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
