Veteran Nigerian rapper IllBliss has a very enviable work ethic. The quality of his discography isn’t one many of his colleagues can boast of. Yet, he’s working even harder than ever. Last year, he blessed his fans with two solid releases; “IllyZilla” his joint tape with seasoned hip-hop producer Teckzilla and “Illosophy”, a seven-track EP that gave us a peek into the mind of Oga Boss, the revered wordsmith. But Illy isn’t stopping there. Just this morning, he opened the doors to his long-teased sixth studio album “Illy Chapo X”, and there are also rumours of a joint EP with Bigfoot in the works. With this LP, his 10th body of work, Illbliss is easing into his elder statesman role, and solidifying his legacy as one of the best to ever do it in these parts,
This album contains 17 tracks, with a total run time of 54 minutes. It also guests some of Nigeria’s finest acts, Phyno, Yemi Alade, Niniola, Johnny Drille and the YBNL general, Olamide.
For the production of this monumental album, he works with a long list of producers including Toye Aru, Kezyklef, Legendurybeatz, Majorbangz, YoungD, Bigfoot, Benjamz, Kwenubeats, Johnny Drille and Shay-who.
