Geoff Antonio & the iLL fUNK nATION

Geoff Antonio & the iLL fUNK nATION

Hip-Hop? Funk? Latin? Call it what you will, but the Ill Funk Nation is making some good music. No, I am not the biggest hip-hop/rap fan, but I can recognize good shit, and well This is some good shit. Reminiscent of Ozomatli's "Street Signs" What separates this group from other hip-hop groups is its use of intelligent lyrics with and actual fucking band. Yes, they play their own music. On the bands site they list their sound as "Total Original Sound", and while lots of bands say this hardly any of them follow through with it, but Geoff Antonio & the Ill Funk Nation do it. Now if only they actually had their songs on myspace available for download as opposed to just being able to listen to them. Check them out and hand them some support.

I give them 3 1/2 stars out of 5
