Ill Poetic - An Idiot's Guide to Anarchy (2xLP)


Hip-Hop fans may recognize Ohio-born San Diego emcee/pro- ducer/artist Ill Poetic as the man behind the boards of Detroit artist Red Pill’s critically-acclaimed 2016 album “Instinctive Drowning” (Mello Music Group). Praised not only as a powerful and emotional project, Ill Poetic was highlighted by numerous national media outlets for his progressive, boundary-pushing production on the record as well. Those familiar with Ill Po’s history wouldn’t be surprised by these descriptions; he’s built a career unbound by genre, or even industry. For his next project, Ill Po creates an expansive new universe with his first full-length album since 2007, “An Idiot’s Guide to Anarchy”.

Working with artists from Ohio’s legendary ‘60s/’70s Ohio Funk scene as well as a plethora of diverse young musicians & vocalists, Ill Poetic creates a unique sound steeped in a classic Ohio funk and soul outfit that travels from psych-rock to industrial, from 808s to the ethereal: A Postmodern George Clinton with biting lyricism fueled by the soul of George Carlin.

“Many things built this album, both selfish and selfless: In the 10 years it took to create, I quit my job, gave up my apartment, car and entire way of life to dedicate myself to this idea. I put all my sh*t in a storage unit, lived in my manager’s basement, and traveled from city to city on a greyhound studying and recording every session for this album. I got married, learned family and landed in a Motel 6 in California with them to be closer to the creativity that I knew would push me to push harder. We’ve faced near-homelessness and hopelessness. I’ve been robbed at gunpoint and pistol-whipped. In death and in life, I’ve lost friends I’d never think I’d lose. I produced, arranged, wrote and co-mixed nearly every piece of music on this record. Every square centimeter of sound and art on it has a deep spectrum of memories and emotion attached to it.”
