Illus makes great, positive, but not preachy, hip-hop. For “Extraordinary,” which features Blueprint, he looks to show that superheroes are all around us. The idea is that we can find the extraordinary in the everyday, and lead by example. Even something as simple lending a helping hand can make a person someone else’s superhero, so we all have the capacity to be extraordinary. The beat Illus and Blueprint rhyme over is pretty extraordinary, as well, so you’ll want to crank this one up.
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.
