If you’re off to Splendour this weekend, make sure you don’t miss Illy. This home-grown rapper is in fine form at the moment, which you can hear on his latest single “Papercuts,” a collaboration with Sydney’s Vera Blue.
“I’ve been holding on to Papercuts for a while, and I’m really excited that it’s finally coming out,” Illy said in a press release. “It’s a different vibe to anything I’ve done before. I love that about it. A lot of rap music’s been uninspiring lately. I wanted to make an album that didn’t sound like anything else out, and bring back those big moments and big songs that make albums stand out. I can’t wait to share the rest of this one.”
“Papercuts” is likely to feature on Illy’s fifth studio album, which he’s currently working on with M-Phazes. No doubt Splendour attendees will get a sneak peek at some of the other tracks from that release.
