Many of us grow up listening to our parents’ music, old school stuff with substance that speaks to the mind. Chicago’s own I.B.C.L.A.S.S.I.C. is no exception to that rule… only he took it and ran with it. I.B. is rapidly growing as one of Chicago’s most talented young producers, teaming up with the city’s best MCs. Among a slue of high-quality singles, I.B. has been working hard for the past year to bring to fruition his first ever full-length project, #WhenAllElseFails.
Drawing inspiration from the greats his parents listened to like Smokey Robinson, Phil Collins and Dr. Dre, I.B. brings an individuality to Windy City hip hop. His original style of production often incorporates live instrumentation and complete originality. #WhenAllElseFails fuses I.B.C.L.A.S.S.I.C.’s raw musical talent with some of the truest voices speaking out from Chicago. Shining stars like Logan, Saba, Young Lyxx and MC Tree all make an appearance on the album, giving the listener a rap roulette of different styles and sounds to enjoy.
I.B.C.L.A.S.S.I.C.’s enduring work ethic and passion for real music make for one incredible project to uplift and drive you, or put you at ease. #WhenAllElseFails, music is there.
