Audio: Skillz That Pay Da Billz 2 Ill-Literate-Skillz


Our dudes Ill Skillz hit us with their EP Skillz That Pay Da Billz 2. The 8 track album is full of the flow and melody that made us fall in love with the Cape Town trio a couple of years ago. Catch them at one of Africa's most renowned music festivals, The Cape Town International Jazz Fest where they'll perform among other star MCs Jean Grae, and HHP.  The Jazz Fest is a gig they say they've been waiting their whole lives for. Stay tuned for the OKA TV piece in which Ill Skillz takes us vinyl shopping in Cape Town and peep one of their studio sessions. Stream and download the album below.
