Without further ado, Infamous Billa has blessed the music industry with his debut mixtape, “Undefined” and fans are in a frenzy.
Drill has been a rising sub-genre of hip hop, from the UK, to Chicago, to New York City. Over time, the NY sound started becoming a replica of those outside, losing its authentic grimy NY lingo. That was until the late Pop Smoke brought NY drill to its peak with the assistance of others like Casanova. In the Upper East Side, resided a rapper that took notice of the movement and has stepped in to take the baton from where they left off. His name, is Infamous Billa. Within his mind is the unique trait of a lyricist, able to do the impossible with words and create rhyme schemes and bars with jaw dropping cadence and flow. He has gained hip hop’s respect with his lyrical prowess and continues to aspire to reach legendary status as his influencers, Tupac, KRS One and super producer Premo.
His sound has since brought him even more recognition, but also it stands for positive change in the state of the world. Billa raps not just for riches, but to uplift hip hop and represent the face of music in the fight against injustice and inequality. To achieve this goal, he also turned his attention to launch a successful cannabis company that houses products like, “Space Gas.” Hip hop, however, was growing impatient for his debut mixtape, “Undefined.” Billa, being a man of the people, heard, and he answered with its release on April 9th, 2021. Since then, fans have been unable to stop talking about the project and the worth of rhymes, melodies, and content that is compounded into the work of art. The industry asked, and they received, but what was delivered was far beyond the expectations anyone was hoping for. Billa is known for his level of lyricism, but “Undefined” shows him in his purest form, raw and loose of any restraints on his abilities. He already had the gold stamp of approval, but the emotion and passion displaced in his debut mixtape was worth more than any recognition could surmount to. “Undefined” covers a range of content, pain, grit, heart, everything within life’s experiences, and its tracks uplift while simultaneously murdering beats.
If anything can be said of Billa, it would be that he’s on course to be one of hip hop’s greatest. “Undefined” is just further proof of that predestined claim. Bad karma once tried to overthrow his life, but with good karma ever radiating from the NY spitter, he continues to overcome and help others do the same in the process.
