This time around on Rhythm Roulette, we link up with Jersey-born and NYC-based beatsmith Illmind. From working underground circuits to eventually gaining recognition via his involvement with the Beat Society scene, Illmind has accumulated a resume that’s in a league of its own.
Illmind began the early stages of his career working with independent and well respected acts like Strange Fruit Projects, Little Brother, Reks, and Sean Price, and eventually struck a deal with Sha Money XL. This propelled him to working with heavyweights like 50 Cent, Erykah Badu, Redman, Scarface, Lloyd Banks, and many more. Illmind may be one of the most versatile producers in the game.
After putting on the ceremonial blindfold, and running his fingers through stacks of vinyl, Illmind created a straight slapper for us, using a gem of sample by Patti LaBelle. Check out the episode above and be on the lookout for what Illmind has in store in the near future including work with The Clipse, Kanye West, Drake, Eminem, Lauryn Hill, Drunken Tiger, Yoon Mirae & many more.
