Illmaculate – Trainspotting (prod. Chase Moore)

While Illmaculate might see music as a trivial obsession, he is currently proving how important his voice is beyond the track. The Portland emcee has been making local headlines since Saturday night, when he refused to perform at his own show after swarms of Police arrived at the venue and disrupted the positive, peaceful atmosphere. For Portland hip hop fans this was just another example of the city actively resisting any shred of urban culture, but for Illmaculate it was the final straw. 

“I will not perform in this city as long as the blatant targeting of black culture and minorities congregating is acceptable common practice.” – Illmaculate (via twitter)
