Album Notes
Both Aarophat and Illastrate decided to merge as a group to generate a remedy for the lack of quality in Hip-Hop music today. After listening to the album, it's hard to imagine that they actually met 14 hours before recording a single note. Aaro bonds his intense, intricate rhymes to Illa's nostalgic, boom-bap soulscape. The album consists of rugged instrumentals, along with aggressive percussion and heavy bass that allows Aaro to strategically map out his lyrical takeover while pulling listeners in. Using his insightful lyrics and an effortless flow, Aarophat gracefully walks the tightropes while Illastrate's production is gritty, yet friendly and inviting. The chemistry between the two is undeniable and the world will soon agree.

Hailing from Youngstown, Ohio, lead vocalist Aarophat has been making his presence felt on the scene working for years and has gained the respect of being considered among the most elite wordsmiths in his home state as well as around the globe. His breakthrough to the world arena came when Pockets Linted CEO and artist Rasco (Cali Agents) noticed the emcee's star quality in his hunger-laced, highly potent delivery and immediately inked Aaro after having his first listen. He soon sided with Pockets Linted/Fat Beats, then later with Rawkus being hand picked by Slopfunkdust as one of the "certified" fifty most prolific emcees in the Underground Hip-Hop circuit today.

Illastrate's phenomenal qualities are ever approaching new heights as well, with his knack for top-notch production, quality and style. Illa's name now reverberates in the industry like his trademarked "dirty drums", which can be heard on Akir's "LEGACY" LP, the Broady Champs' "BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS," and on the Dynas BBE release "THE APARTMENT." His beats are also behind the vocals of such artists as Tiye Phoenix, Invizibl Men (Marq Spekt and Karnaige), Senor Kaos, Boog Brown and Lords Of The Underground.

The Black Noise sound has already been savored as a favorite among the masses. Both separately and jointly, these two Hip-Hop giants have definitely proven themselves worthy of their rightful place at the table. With their new self-titled LP the stakes are finally as high as the echelon they have built for themselves. The guard in the rap game is on the break of changing and sides are being chosen. The people want better for themselves. They want a better world and want better music. Their yearn for better Hip-Hop shows to be no different. Aarophat and Illastrate have upped their ante yet again and things will never be the same.
