Andrew Dubber Honestly? It's on LOOP, so I grabbed it. But that Robot song is ACE. Favorite track: Robot (featuring a robot).

about

Three EPs in, prolific MC, Tommy Ill, is a svelte yet metaphorically obese young man – as his proverbial belt is having to be stretched yet again to make room for his self-titled debut LP.

“My goal was to make the strongest album I possibly could. I didn’t want to have any fillers – I wanted each song to be as exciting as the last. It’s been a long time coming but I think I’ve succeeded – I’d be comfortable putting any track on this album out as a single.” - Tommy Ill

Now on his debut LP, Tommy Ill combines all his powers of past EPs with a new rap repertoire, kind of like when the Planeteers combined their powers to summon Captain Planet. The result - a fresh take on past offerings mingled with completely new tracks.

You can also still expect songs that tackle the everyday issues of hangovers, heartache and bills – party tracks full of dry witticisms and cheeky rhymes set to askew pop tracks from the 50s and 60s.
