"I am feeeeelin this!! NC stand up right here. This ish is dope! It’s off the new album “Gimmick Free,” which you can get on iTunes, Amazon, and all other major online retailers."

"their album Gimmick Free is built on both solid wordsmithery and an arsenal of tasteful, unobtrusive samples that recall the Golden Age of hip-hop hooks. Far more soulful than booty-bumping"

"But what’s even doper is the track “Get Your Hands High” by Ignite and Imagery! This joint is off their recently released album Gimmick Free which dropped on July 20. I’m about to check the balance in my checking account and head over to iTunes to grab this now!"

Ignite and Imagery: Gimmick Free LP



Ignite and Imagery is a North Carolina hip hop group that sounds like Wu Tang, Little Brother, and The Roots bumping in a baked out Cadillac. With an MC/producer who plays keyboard or bass on stage while rapping, and an MC/ soul singer who plays drums while vocalizing, and an occassional trumpet player; the live shows are not to be missed. Their new album Gimmick Free is an offering of lyrical acrobatics with a focus on smooth, melodic flows that compliment the beat. The aim is to please the ears of music fans who might not care so much about lyrics, while still dropping the jaws of fellow lyricists. The beats, mostly by Ignite Mindz, range from beautiful soul to the sinister classical, to funked out, to jazz, to rock. The album flows well as a whole. It's just two crazy fuckers from Winston-Salem who love hip hop and making music. NC has some incredible hip hop artists and I&I is happy to be a part of this scene.
