EP Stream: Illogic & Blockhead ‘Preparing for Capture’

by @thoughtontracks

I highlighted a song and video from Columbus, OH rapper Illogic and his new producer Blockhead a few weeks back on Thought On Tracks.  The song was a leak from their new EP Preparing For Capture, which is everything I could have hoped for in an introductory EP.  I was a little worried that the EP would be a random collection of songs that didn’t make the cut for their upcoming full length album, but that is not the case.  Similar themes run throughout Illogic’s rhymes as he tells tales of trial and error, growth, and cause and effect.

Blockhead’s shifting beats are great throughout and allow Illogic to be creative as he wants to be with his rhyme schemes and song structures.  The final song “HERstory” is a standout song on which Illogic spins a story of generational family self-destruction over a chameleon of a beat from Blockhead.  On “Nails” Illogic and Rob Sonic trade impressive stream of conscience verses and “Teach Me To Learn” sees Illogic in vintage form over a psychedelic, trumpet blaring banger from Blockhead.  Illogic and Blockhead are two veteran musicians at the peak of their powers that seem to be building towards something really substantial, get on board now.  You can stream the EP below, but it’s also available for free download.  If you like it, grab a physical copy with two bonus tracks and poster for 7.99.
