Too Many T’s- LA FAM ILL
When, if ever, have you heard of a British rap duo collaborating with the best producers, rappers & beatboxers France has to offer?
Well, we are proud to affirm that the time has finally come!
LA FAM ILL is a multi genre, alt Hip Hop album from acclaimed British duo Too Many T’s, featuring a heavy dose of classic old school beats that weave their way from bouncy dub & upbeat guitar led funk beats, to modern electro infused hip hop underpinned with dirty synth lines.
With a different producer on every track there is a plethora of musical styles all tied together with the T’s controlling the microphone with their signature energy and well-crafted lyricism.
Too Many T’s showcase buoyant playful tongue in cheek lyrics teaching us not to take life too seriously with their notorious back-to-back double-time raps, whilst sitting comfortably alongside much deeper and more reflective song writing. This is an album that travels the world both figuratively, and literally. LA FAM ILL's journeys reflect those of the band's protagonists, Leon and Ross, floating effortlessly through a forest of stories both lived and witnessed - the effects of climate change, class warfare, and the difficulties of maintaining friendships as we grow up.
Amidst the diverse, intriguing, and overall feel of the album, each track has its own special twist created by the colossal lineup of French Hiphop artists including: Atili, ASM, Chill Bump, Chinese Man, Djar One, Form, Hippocampe Fou, La Fine Equipe, MB14, Proleter, Pumpkin & VinS Da Cuero, Smokey Joe & The Kid and Yoshi Di Original.
The story of LA FAM ILL's creation began in 2017, when Too Many T’s performed to a crowd of thousands at Trans Musicales festival, Rennes. This recording went viral overnight, and the T’s suddenly found themselves a brand new fan French base, & got promptly signed to Bordeaux-based French label Banzai Lab and Parisian booking agency Cartel Concerts.
A massive 40 date tour across France soon emerged and propelled the band further into French consciousness. Along the way they made an abundance of new friendships and connections with some of France’s biggest and best names in the genre….and thus ‘LA FAM ILL’ was born!
This Too Many T’s ‘and friends’ project proves yet again how innovative and unique the T’s are, showcasing incredible talent and fusing them together from both sides of the English Channel!
As the Brexit deadline approaches on the 31st October for the UK to leave the EU, LA FAM ILL released only a few days later is clear evidence that irrespective of what occurs in politics, music will continue connect us wherever we are in the world.
LA FAM ILL is out on Friday 8th November.
