Illa J just shared the visuals for his cut “7 Mile,” off his recently released Home album.
The track, produced by Calvin Valentine is the second release off the album. In the video, he drives through parts of Detroit and then walks through some of the neighborhoods, showing the character of the area. The track touches on the overall concept of the entire album, which is Illa J talking about his hometown, and how it’s shaped him as a man and artist.
Continuing to grow his influence as co-founder of Yancey Boys, and maintaining his older brother, J Dilla’s legacy while carving his own unique lane, Illa J’s work continues to speak for itself.
