Aside from Macklemore (and Sir Mix-a-Lot, for all you '90s kids), Washington State isn't really known for its hip-hop. Enter ILLFIGHTYOU, a three-member crew from Tacoma who make gritty music and count Ugly Frank as a member. The trio released their debut tape about a year ago, and now Frank is stepping out on his own with theÂ Bobby Hill EP.Â
With sounds that range from G-funk (on "90") to jerky, dance-influenced bounce (on "LEFT OVA"), this EP makes a promising case for Ugly Frank's rising stock. Above all, a hazy, stoned-out vibe pervades all of the songs on the tape, making it decidedly West Coast in nature.Â
Let us know if y'all are feeling Ugly Frank in the comments, and hit him with a follow @UGLY_FRANK.
