Audio: Ill Skillz 'Page From A Book ft. X-Rate & Anonymous'

Can we talk about how Cape Town rap duo Ill Skillz's appropriated Zimmerman's The Times They Are A-Changin'? Dylan's mug currently adorns their twitter, soundcloud, and likely a handful of other Skillz cyber spots — which we're all for, but it kind of confuses us. "Page From A Book" isn't very Dylan-esque (is there any Dylan-esque rap?), but that's not to say it's not a proper joint. No acoustic crooning here, just throwback deliveries from Ill Skillz, X-Rate and Anonymous over a Primo-inspired beat.
