Download new CHRIS GR3EN album ‘ILLUMINATED’

Every rapper who makes it tells you how hungry and ambitious they are. Plenty wax lyrical about their passion and desire, then sink into commercial posturing and shiny produced crass for the masses.

Columbus, Ohio rapper CHRIS GR3EN seems truly voracious and passionate though. Not many rappers have contacted me directly to point me towards their latest mixtapes and albums – but GR3EN is different – check him out on Twitter if you don’t believe me – he’s all over it, ranting and raving but staying true to himself at the same time. No fictitious masquerading, just a huge hunger to get his music heard.

Anyway, his latest mixtape, ILLUMINATED was released last week and is available to download for free here – and it’s got some of his best tracks to date.

The album features The New Retro Mafia and highlights include the Kool Keith-esque Captain’s Log, the hypnotic Building 7 and the Bjork sampling title track.

It’s by no means perfect but it shows plenty of promise. Check it out!
