The Boy Illinois Teams Up with YP on Buzz Single “Downtown”

If you aren’t familiar with The Boy Illinois, don’t worry it’s not too late to get hip.

After remixing the Migo’s “T-Shirt” the Illini spitter drops another banger with a classic Chi- town artist, YP. For the track “Downtown” the two are rapping over a simple beat, but find ways to keep the fans engaged.

Trading verses YP and Illi make a dope tag team song with a catchy one liner hook for this quickie but goodie to add to your playlist.

On the track The Boy Illinois opens the single with dropping clues on how to hustle in the heart of the city, keeping it legal and low.

YP closes out the song with multiple Chicago references from Michael Jordan, CPN numbers and paints a visual of Oak Street downtown.

An unorthodox match up, yet they both keep it simple bringing their own unique touch in describing the heartbeat of Chicago, “Downtown.”
