Versis - 'iLLCANDESCENT' x 'The Need'

The digital distribution revolution has meant that an artist can go straight to the source etc. etc., you know the deal. But, what it also does is give some artists notoriety off of ONE track! 

I do still carry a bit of an old-school 'pay your dues' kind of mentality, so I am always a bit hesitant to wax lyrical about a band or artist that gets piles of hype based on one or two releases.

That said, Versis is an MC that appeared (to me anyway) on the scene in the last year or two. He has released bits and pieces via MP3 as is pretty much standard these days.

What I will say about him though is that his current back-catalogue is pretty solid, there are some great straight-up hip-hop tunes in his repetoire, so I am pretty interested to see what his debut LP, 'iLLCANDESCENT' is going to sound like.

Peep the release date up top, and in the meantime, check out some of his released music and his lovely newest joint, 'The Need'.
