The Ill Funk Ensemble (Conscious Hip Hop/Soul)
Who Needs a Genre?
Simply DOPE! Stream their new joint below and get ready for their official release on August 24th, 2012.
Described by reviewers as “a kind of 21st century mash-up of Kool & the Gang and the Isley Brothers” and “all hot sand and asphalt”, Ill Funk takes hip-hop and R&B in a different, yet oddly familiar direction. Perhaps it’s the blend of old and new school vibes, the warm smile of Jermaine Wells, the lead singer, or the obvious fun the band has whether they’re recording or performing live; whatever it is, the band has made the most of its position by performing all over the Northeast
