From Brisbane’s urban jungle comes Tommy Illfigga with a sure-fire ripper of an album entitled Walk a Mile. Tommy Illfigga is a pure-blood hip hop native. Since ‘99 the wily emcee has been skulking the scene in many capacities, earning many accolades to his names (plural), together Tommy Illfigga and his alter ego Tom Thumb are taking the world by storm.
Tommy’s aptitude is apparent not only through his exceptional word-harnessing abilities, but also in his proficiency as a respected producer, B-boy, graff writer and Beat Boxer. His first release The Unfiltered EP hit shelves in 2007, stirring the scene with a demonstration of his producing abilities (together with Sammsonite) and his cutting-edge wordplay.
‘You wouldn’t pigeon hole my music into any one particular style of hip hop. Perhaps it’s one of my greatest virtues -to be flexible with the music I make. I am well and truly in my comfort zone spitting anything from story tracks, to battle rhymes on boom bap, to double time beats. So there’s not much I feel restricted by or could consider my only style.’ – Tommy Illfigga
With production by Trials, One Above and K21, Tommy imbedded himself in the trenches of the Adelaide Hills to work with some of Australia’s best beat makers. Bringing a personalized flavour to the fore only he can generate, this wiz-kid has the scene abuzz in a big way.
