Between the Waka Flocka & French Montana mixtape, the 50 Cent mixtape, the A$AP Rocky mixtape and a plethora of classic staples, I’ve been on a pretty rad Hip-Hop binge lately. Being in that zone might be one of the reasons I’m feeling this Vakill dude so much. He was featured in the Chicago Tribune’s Best Chicago Music of 2011 article and I’ve had his “Armor of God” video on repeat since reading.
“Armor of God”, produced by JakeOne, is the title track off his mid-2011 LP and it’s chock-full of proper Chicago representation. That mixed with a confrontational beat and a healthy block of intermittent cuts and you’ve got me fully on board. Also, as you can see in the video above, the production value that Brazilionaire and Seel Fresh bring to the table is relieving. It’s usually safe to assume that an underground Hip-Hop video will be a low-budget blunder, but Vakill and Molemen Records did it right.
