An enlightened ImproPoe is now “better than he was” in 2018

Lavatory Records

 

Who can forget rapper ImproPoe’s bold declaration on who the best emcee was? Of course, his answer was HIMSELF! He made this statement three years ago following the release of his mixtape Body of Proof,which ultimately earned him some rather impressive levels of acclaim. On this project, the rapper who is part of Revivolution had embarked on proving a point to announce his arrival.

Since then the man with more aliases than the entire Wu Tang Clan, ironically went off on a mystical journey to the Far East and landed up in China where he currently resides. By adopting the industriousness of his new host country, he then worked on another solo project which was released a few weeks ago titled Certain Dillusions. The curiosity will always come about when one impresses on debut, as questions arise like what can hip hop fans from him expect now? It can also be rather difficult to try and beat a previous body of work with minimal flaws.

We are excited that ImproPoe aka Shaun Collins aka The White Shadow aka James Caviar, has finally dropped his sophomore project and would not miss the opportunity to catch up with him.

Tommy Ills and his new cinematic approach to life and music

 

Lavatory Records

When thinking of art and music, one mantra that has constantly been conveyed here at Lavatory Records is that “music connects us all”. Be it film, theater, radio and television – every form of entertainment has music encompassed in it. This mantra also applies to rapper Tommy Ills from the Revivolution clique – bar a slight nuance from that norm.

Tommy Ills, who used to be known as One L during his battle rap days, was an aspirant film maker who discovered rap music along the way. For Tommy, his life can be likened to a screenplay that converged into the perfect musical script (rap sheets even so to speak). With his forthcoming release, Pizza and Pu**y Parlour, a collaboration with producer Vez Fullstop, he aims to “Do The Right Thing” for his career and artistic direction. Hence the change of aliases from One L to Tommy Ills was more than suited to his new outlook.

We were able to get word from Tommy Ills about his origins and artistry, his love for fashion, musical direction, battle rap history and much more. Without further ado, we get into the fourth Revivolution feature on Lavatory Records.

Tony Dangler exudes the answer to “Who’s The Boss”

Lavatory Records

Many people who follow the underground Hip Hop scene would have known Tony Dangler as Fudge Fugitive, before he adopted his new alias. The dangling may just be a personification of his cool, laid back nature and smooth rhyming, which ultimately contributes to the different flavours you can find within the Revivolution Clique.

With Tony, being the boss is not necessarily the Hip Hop association that you find with the Rick Ross’ or the Birdmans’ about getting paid and having people to pay. In Tony’s instance it’s about embodying being an emcee (MC) as a form of mastery and that mastery of self. Since partaking in the Sprite Uncontainable Search which took him all the way to New Orleans a few years ago, he’s gone through some redefining moments. When one’s horizons expand, perspectives change and the possibilities become infinite.

Since then he’s released his collaboration album with Canadian producer, Sam Static called Tone Static EP, which was released towards the end of 2015. We reached out to Tony after having previously chatted to his Revivolution mates ImproPoe and Inferno Williams. We spoke to Mr “Swank_N_Dank” about his latest project, his coming of age and name switch, and his battle rap days among other things.
