Paying Dues

My manz @Nemesisinc sent me a link to this vid he shot in 09 around the time Ill Skillz was wrapping up Off The Radar our debut album, that never quite made it national but is still sought after to this day. It's interesting to look back and see how far you've come, yet realising it's still a long shot to where your mind is at. I didn't make it to The Planetarium on this particular day, but what you see in the vid is pretty much how shit jumped off there. We shared the stu with Driemanskap, we put the studio together and one time it got broken into. That wasn't so clever of those kids, coz i mean what were they thinking? We were just gonna let it go? well to reference Mr Bey, them boys got Got! Not shot, more like knocked the fuck out type shit. Needless to say we got most of what was stolen back.

The song "Man Up" never made the album cut, but it should be in the vaults and who knows we might just put it out for you. Driemanskap are having a series of gigs in the run up to their second album launch, and Ill Skillz will be rocking with the fellas on the 4th of Feb at District 6 Cafe in Cape Town this weekend. Diggin' Deep is the clique, What Up Township! Check out Tommy Jinxx break it down sporting the second series of Double H (Head Honcho) gear. Ill Skillin!
