Brooklyn rapper Ill Bill will release his third solo album, The Grimy Awards, on February 26. It boasts a sweet lineup of producers, including DJ Muggs, DJ Premier, El-P, Pete Rock and Moss. The album features guest rhymes from M.O.P., Jedi Mind Tricks, El-P and more.
Bill made his mark as a member of the 90s underground outfit Nonphixion. The group's critical smash, The Future Is Now (2002), opened the door for a wave of solo projects, notably Bill's 2004 bow, What's Wrong with Bill?
The Grimy Awards is Bill's first solo effort since 2008's The Hour of Reprisal. See the full tracklist, features, and production credits below.
