Portland, Oregon duo Illmaculate & OnlyOne present the Stephan Lerch directed music video for ‘Only & Ill‘, produced by Chase Moore, it’s the title track from their latest album out now featuring Crooked I, Yukmouth, Hippie Sabotage and Sapient. Illmaculate won 2004’s Scribble Jam (the youngest emcee ever to do so), two World Rap Championships and this year’s King Of The Dot title.
The album’s release comes on the heel of the video clip for single ‘Can’t Take That Away’ (watch). Illmaculate has collaborated with Macklemore (click HERE to listen to the ‘Letterhead’ remix and HERE to listen to ‘Do It Themselves’), Inspectah Deck (click HERE to listen to ‘How You Do That’) and Tech N9ne (click HERE to listen to ‘Go Study’).
Illmac and OnlyOne together have accrued over 16 million Youtube views and have toured nationally and internationally alongside Mos Def, E-40, Wu-Tang Clan, Aesop Rock, Yelawolf, Lupe Fiasco and Slaughterhouse.
“Only & Ill sort of embodies how Only and my dynamic has been since day one,” says Illmaculate. “In the context of our group Sandpeople, we were the young guns who said the wild shit. Even the line “What you know about Only & Ill?” Is a throwback to an old Sandpeople song where we juggled that rhyme scheme the entire song. The intro is really the tone setter for the hour and change of drug-induced debauchery that follows”.
