about

"All music, is Soul music"

-Illest...

Being made manifest first in the realm of the imagination & after which realized for & inspired by, the motion picture "M.J. McCoy's...LEAN."
"THE ILLAMENTALS" are a collection of avant garde instrumental Hip Hop Soul compositions which we profess to be the world's first piece of "Sonic Cinema," each piece being a story element or plot point. As a whole, the piece is arranged & presented in the Aristotelian three (3) act structure, "The Introduction, The Complications, The Catharsis."

"THE ILLAMENTALS" sonically relates the story of an up & coming artist who has, at last, made the breakthrough he's been working toward... after years of grinding it out and having a decent amount of success, he and his cronies have finally made it into the "Industry," only to find that his life is still as troubled, if not more so, than before.

We join him on this last leg of his journey toward stardom, wealth & fame and witness his process at this most tempestuous period of his, already chaotic life. We are watchers with a bird's eye view as he navigates his way through dangerous street associations, an increasing reliance on Codeine syrup, a stressfully torrid love triangle, strained familial ties & abiding & loyal commitment to those who have aided him in his meteoric rise to the top.
