Aside from having one of the best group names in all of rap music, ILLFIGHTYOU serves more as a mission statement and aesthetic for the barrage of intense, volatile tales stemming from young, working-class anger. This isn’t gloomy Seattle sad boy music, these tunes sound like what tense nerves feel like. With all the production handled by Khris P, the title track “Ding” opens with a sampled monologue of Don King describing the dirty fighting tactics of former heavyweight stand out Andrew “The Foul Pole” Golota. Notorious for his two-fisted brutality, Golota was most known for occasionally kicking, biting and dick punching his opposition. That alone should let you know that ILLFIGHTYOU is here to win by any means and hurt you in the process. - MYSPACE

My favorite album this year is Tacoma-based trio ILLFIGHTYOU’s debut record. The album sounds like what a bunch of older kids with good taste in rap (who are too busy being rowdy to give a fuck about “real hip-hop”) would make. Telling you what a dozen rap songs are about is an exercise in futility, but here goes: these songs are mostly about drugs, girls, being cool, violence, drinking, and parental issues. Comparisons to an older, disillusioned, non-skateboarding early Odd Future would be somewhat apt.

The members of ILLFIGHTYOU are: EvergreenOne (rapper), Khris P (rapper/producer), and UGLYFRANK (rapper). The entirety of the bassy, drum-heavy production is handled by the same duo (KReamteam), consisting of two brothers, Khris P and LOU SWANG. Synths swirl and ominous piano plinks keep the mood off-kilter throughout. The Don King-quote that starts the album (about former “great white hope” boxer Andrew Golota) is a precious piece of aural Americana. Oh, there is also not a bad song on the album. For real. - NOISEY
