The Ill Addicts are set for their biggest year yet. Before ill Addicts released the single and eerie music video for Anthrax, their political bars and hooks came off as little more than gestural. While their impressive back catalog is laced with intoxicating songs with hooks diverse in subject matter, at times playful, other times the ill Addicts actively provocative, though the shoves have been rife with irony.
Now with the release of “Anthrax,” this south shore rap clique have sharpened an ideological architecture that is as large as it is bald, with a hook that is currently electrifying my spinal column.
