ILLY’S LONG STORY SHORT OUT NOW! ALL AGES AND MUPH & PLUTONIC SUPPORT SHOW ANNOUNCED!
“One of 2009’s most exciting hip hop prospects” – 3D World
Album of the week – Inpress (May 13th)
“Generation Y” the #12 most added song to radio – The Music Network (#738)
A story worth telling does not unfold by itself, and so with open mind and gifted pen, Illy’s Long Story Short (featuring the tracks “Generation Y”, “Full Tank”, and “Pictures”) has now hit the masses and maintains the benchmark standard set by his new label home, Obese Records. Long Story Short is a tale about falling in and out of love with people, places, family, friendship, hip-hop and travelling the world, all shaped by the unique privilege of growing up Australian. Featuring production by M-Phazes and J-Skub and guest spots from Pegz, Spit Syndicate, Solo, Phrase, and more, Long Story Short is a compelling collection that embodies the spirit and scope of Australian hip hop, the opening chapter of a promising tale.
To celebrate the release, Illy has lined up a few Melbourne shows next month. The first as part of an all-ages showcase featuring Illzilla, and the next, opening for label mates Muph & Plutonic at their final Melbourne show (for awhile). Details and ticket information can be found below. Full album launch show to be announced soon!
Long Story Short is available now at all good music retail shops and online via iTunes and Obese Records.
