I am the...ILLEST Alive-Explanation

As defined by, the word 'ILLEST' means about FIVE different things...allow me to eludicate a little further...

  1. Nothing better than

  2. The maddest, sickest, best shit

  3. The tightest, the best, the most gutta, the sickest

  4. The sickest,meanest, bad ass rhymes or mind

  5. The most ill

So to call oneself or anything associated with the 'Illest Alive' is to imply that you are one or all of the aforementioned things...

Wait a moment.

Let me give you the genesis of this whole thing before I go any farther.

It all started one day when I was walking near my cousin's apartment who I was living with at the time. I had always been enthralled by the graffiti that I seen living in Atlanta, this day being no exception. While on my homeward trek I noticed a electrical box emblazoned with three words written in graffiti art style-The Illest Alive. Having a camera phone I took a picture of it and after I did ideas for an album started coming to me. Being how I am about things I wanted to approach this concept a little differently; in my thinking anyone can write an album about a concept or a set theme but to write an album based upon stringing random ideas together would be, for lack of a better term, ILL. One of my friends had already given a random song idea involving a male being caught masturbating by his mother and upon completing that song (yea, I wrote it...) I fugured any ideas that she could come up with would be random enough for what I was trying to do...

She rose to the occasion magnificently and here is what I got:

Random topics from the mind of a miracle…

1. Create a song about a young single father raising an autistic child

2.Do one on facebook spring break pictures

3.Describe an old woman driving and accidently hitting and killing a young woman and her 3 month old child

4.Create a song about a woman falling in love with her 18 year old son and cheating on her husband by having an affair with her child

5.American being kidnapped in Mexico

6.Love at first fight… interpret however you want

7.Atheist being converted into a believer by a former meth addict

8.Being hunger but not eating a muffing sitting outside of the train station because you are afraid a homeless man has pissed on it

9.Someone trying to make a relationship work when one person is asexual and the other is hypersexual

10.Describe a situation when someone smokes weed, gets drunk, takes x pills, and snorts cocain to prove how much of a friend she was only to end up a prostitute for a parttime pimp/police officer

11.A woman being so turned on by her own naked appearance in the mirror that she calls her boo for a quickie right in the bathroom in the mirror so that she can enjoy watching herself enjoy him

12.Delve into the mind of a baby and explore what he/she is thinking as the understand the world

13.Aliens and anal probing

14.Feeding a dog weed brownies and watching him get high

Suffice to say I was impressed with the topics and even more impressed with how I was so readily able to connect these random ideas in one flowing stream of action...

With that being said, may I present to you....THE ILLEST ALIVE
