iLLiE, OnCue, and The Dean’s List at Key Club in Hollywood

November 8th, 2011 by | Concert/Festival Review, Hip-Hop/Rap |

Last Thursday night was a party in Hollywood when the Pledge to Rage Tour stopped at Key Club to put on a great show. iLLie, OnCue and The Dean’s List rocked the place with style making an overall enjoyable show. I have been following these three acts for a long time and to see them all on stage for one event was truly a great experience.

Our night started off we with iLLiE, an alternative hip-hop/rock group from right in Los Angeles. They are small and not very well known. However, after their performance, I believe they gained a handful of new fans. Their unique style and energy really got the crowd interested. My favorite track by them that they performed is “D.G.A.F.” (Don’t Give A Fuck). Enjoy it below:

While Gilbere Forte was performing, we had the honor of interviewing OnCue back stage before his set. They interview will be up on the site later this month but he is a really cool guy and it was a total success. When it was time for him to go on stage, he absolutely lit it up. I always knew he was a very talented rapper but I had way more respect for him and his skills after seeing him live. He reminds me of a young Atmosphere. My all time favorite track by him is “Feel Tall” and that was in my opinion his best song he performed during his set. Enjoy!

Finally, to end the night was the main act, The Dean’s List. As you all know we have been following and promoting this group since pretty much the beginning back in April 2010. As a matter of fact, they are one of the main reasons why we decided to start up this website, to market young up-and-comers such as this hip-hop group. This was only the second time I saw them perform. The first time was back in September 2010, way before their hit mixtape The Drive-In dropped. Now, that I got to hear many of The Drive-In tracks live, I’ve come to even further acknowledge this groups true potential. They got that crowd jumping up and down with lots of energy. Not a dull moment occurred during their set with every song being a huge success. My favorite of theirs was “Dear Professor”. Enjoy!

Upcoming Tour Dates: 11/08 – Portland, Oregon (Roseland Ballroom), 11/09 – Eugene, Oregon (WOW Hall), 11/10 – Washington State University, 11/11 – Seattle, Washington (The Vera Project), 11/16 – Boulder, Colorado (Fox Theatre), 11/18 – Cedar Falls, Iowa (Wheelhouse)

Illie out of L.A. dropped a new single “Lights Out” over the weekend and its a good one. The combination of rock and hip-hop adds uniqueness to this song making for a catchy sound. I met with this group today to talk about the future and I can tell you all that lots of new things are coming out by them soon. I look forward to it all. In the meantime….Enjoy!

Hidden Gem: iLLiE *hip-hop/rock band!

May 31st, 2011 by | Hidden Gem, Hip-Hop/Rap, Rock |

I call iLLiE a future hip-hop super group because as a hip-hop band featuring five Los Angeles natives. I think this is a hip-hop group that has potential for success within a couple years, with talent that can translate to success comparable to a hip-hop group like Slaughterhouse. However iLLiE has more of a hip-hop/rock band production behind their music.

Since I love everything iLLiE has put out in 2011, I will include my 2 favorite original tracks and my 3 favorite remix/covers. Shout out to SomeWhere Else for telling me about these guys, musicians really give the greatest recommendations for other artists to check out besides themselves.

Top 2 originals:
iLLiE – On
iLLiE – 2033
Great songs right! Well if you want something more familiar, here’s 4 remix/covers iLLiE did on their latest mixtape, Deja Vu (DOWNLOAD), which is a must-download project!
iLLiE – I’m Going In (Lil Wayne cover/remix)
iLLiE – Start It Up (Lloyd Banks cover/remix)
iLLiE – Hell Of A Life (Kanye West cover/remix)
iLLiE – Allure (Jay-Z cover/remix)
