Illect Recordings has been one of my favorite labels since I was first introduced to hip-hop. Through the years they’ve been able to build and create a roster of artists to push hip-hop in a positive direction. The latest in this endeavor is that of Armond Wakeup who’s here with his latest EP “40 Days” and Illect was nice enough to slide us an advance stream of the project.
The project produced entirely by Wes Pendleton has Armond packing a lot of content in these five tracks. He calls us to reflect while he himself reflects on what’s gotten him here. The production has something of a minimalistic feel to it, giving Armond’s vocals to star centerstage here. From the introduction “The Mourning” to the closer “The Worth” “40 Days” is one worth popping in for your reflection and meditation. Check it out below and let me know what you think, “40 Days” officially releases tomorrow December 8th.
