Savant is back on a heavy new Philly soul sampling number from Abstrakt Beats with fellow mic manipulator Dray Brown. It turns out The Illest is an eulogy to – well – the ‘illest.’ In the hip-hop sense, obviously. Savant and Brown’s lyrics contrast rappers who give it “wack” – dumbing their rhymes down to suck corporate cock, with the illest that rap – who, it seems, turn down the chance to fellate the industry because, on top of their surgical mic techniques, they possess some dignity. You won’t be surprised to find that our men see themselves as belonging to the latter group. The Illest precedes Savant’s forthcoming Dry Heat compilation, and is a free DL as a ‘thank you’ for the 5000 views his Make Your Move video has now received. Cop it off the player below.
