IGT
(Ill Gotten Team)

I.G.T. was established in 1997 in Roosevelt, Long Island (hometown of Public Enemy, Eddie + Charlie Murphy, and Howard Stern). The 4 member group, signed to Loud Records from '98 to 2001, found home alongside some of hip hop's elite (also home to hip hop's Wu-Tang Clan, Big Pun, Xzibit, Mobb Deep and a long list of other influential artists in hip hop).

Their debut album the "Alpha + Omega" was set to release in 2001. Unfortunately, due to the closing of Loud Records, it never did. However, throughout their time on Loud, IGT gathered up numerous fans with their underground singles which included "G.I.T. Live", "Street Music", "Word to Life" featuring Horace Brown, and "Class by 'emself" which went #1 on college radio in 99-2000.

I.G.T (which is a synonym for "Ill Gotten Team" or "In God we Trust") has collaborated with some of the top artists in hip-hop which include Inspectah Deck of Wu-tang, Mr. Cheeks of Lost Boyz, as well as singers Horace Brown, Soul 4 Real and Kia, who is infamous for blessing the hook on Akinyele's "Put It In Ya Mouth." They have also worked with super producers Alchemist, Large Professor, Pete Rock, Mahogany, and Ez Lp to name a few. They have toured the U.S. doing a host of shows particularly in the East and Southern States. They have also graced the pages of hip hop's top magazines such as Vibe, Source, XXL and smaller publications.

This Group is one of Hip Hop's lost gems recognized by those who have had the pleasure to experience their music as one of the best groups that didn't "Hit Big." Since thier departure and layoff from Loud Records, the group has put out 2 mixtape cds for their core fans. "Eat To Live", the first mixtape released in '02-'03, left those who got it aware and confused as to why IGT wasn't recognized in the mainstream as one of hip hop's elite. Their new Mixtape/Street Album released in '05-'06 entitled "The 4 Fathers" is their latest project. The street album includes features from Tragedy Khadafi, Tru-Life, David Banner, Scarface, Lord Tariq, Trife of Theodore Unit, and artists from I.G.T.'s camp.

At a time where East Coast Rap, particularly New York, is at an all time low, I.G.T. is definately making a statement as to what New York Street rap is. "I.G.T. is a force to be reckoned with and a group to watch on the radar of '06."

E.G. Entertaiment

Classic material, Years ahead of it's time
It is my opinion and that of many of my colleagues that with this CD I.G.T. has recast the mold to a lost artform, by not conforming to the boundaries of what has been come to be known as "Bubble Gum" music implaced upon the Rap "genre" by Commercial Entities. Therefore preserving that unique sound that resonates from their music all the while Staying years ahead of the industry.

~ In that article about I.G.T. it says they are known as the next Best artists who never "Hit Big"... CORRECTION - They are the Best artists who will "HIT BIG" Next!

Blues & Soul (UK) Hip-Hop Column (PRINTED IN B&S 965 / NE-YO COV

IGT comes back STRONG with "The 4 Fathers"
"Whilst the closure of Loud Records meant that IGT's 2001 album "Street Music" was never released, the Long Island crew have come back strong with their mix CD "The 4 Fathers". A rugged dose of New York straight talk that features appearances from Lord Tariq, Tragedy and Ghostface sidekick Trife, instant standouts here include the passionate "Mama Said", the conscious thug rhymes of "All Hood" and the sombre-yet-gripping "Life". Check www.myspace.com/igtmusic "
