Illest Uminati, AKA Young Jay released his latest album Anti-Hero ILL and is now ready for tour. Deranged, cutthroat and on point. The 15-track album features artists such as Kwala, JL, Lil Danger, On One, C.Ray, Caleb Johnson and Overtime. This project takes a peek inside his demented thoughts of slaughtering his enemies, gritty moments and being against all odds. Additionally, each track adds a sense of curiosity to the Fortnite looking character. But, you don’t need visuals to understand the laden verses and hyped choruses.
Despite running a record label and his own brand he manages to stay above the difficulties that come with it. Illest Uminati owns Illest Alumni Records and has done songs with Madchild, Ritz and Crooked I. Gaining a cosign from Tech N9ne and Strange Music has helped him garner his own independent image. I don’t see him signing to anyone anytime soon.
Illest Uminati does well enough on his own to rep himself but recognizes the number of local fans who also held him down. Considering his catalog, rapping isn’t just a hobby. The Tri-Cities continues to prove that its scene is worth noting regardless of national attention.
