Toronto rapper iLLvibe recently racked up the impressive title of Canada's Smartest Person, and he's set to serve up another round of intelligent rhymes on his latest LP Firebreather. Before it officially arrives later this week, Exclaim! is giving you the opportunity to hear it in its entirety and check out the brand new video for "One Man Army."
The record features fellow Canadian talent like 2Rude, D.O. and Quake Matthews, and blasts beats that run the gamut from rock'n'roll to R&B-tinged backing tracks — though it's iLLy's articulate, rapid-fire delivery that steals the spotlight on every song.
Firebreather is out February 5 through Heavy Aux Records/Fontana North. Scroll past iLLvibe's upcoming tour dates to give the whole album an early listen and watch the video for "One Man Army."
