Illmaculate & G_Force Pair Up For New Release "The Green Tape"‏

The Green Tape matches up two of Portland, Oregon's brightest talents - Illmaculate (two-time winner of the World Rap Championship, Scribble Jam 2004, GrindTimeNow,, etc)
& up-and-coming hip hop producer, G_Force (aka Calvin Valentine, producer for Talib Kweli's Blacksmith label, Strong Arm Steady, Planet Asia, TxE & more).

As the producer/artist pairing re-work soul legend Al Green's 2008 comeback album, "Lay It Down", originally produced by ?uestlove & James Poyser of The Roots. G_Force samples the originals & flips them into completely new works, while Illmaculate uses the songs' concepts as launching pads into some of his most personal works to date.

This project is just an introduction of what is to come from Ilmaculate's debut release "Skrill Talk" which will feature Tech N9ne, Krizz Kaliko, Inspektah Deck, Crooked I, and more, and hit stores this Fall.

Look out for much more leaks from The Green Tape still to come, as well as more original FRSH SLCTS releases. Full info & links below:
