Illuminati G’s ‘Times Up’ ends the clock for those snoozing



Illuminati G’s got something to prove. Detroit’s come under a national spotlight thanks to the recent success of artists like TeejayX6, ShittyBoyz, and Sada Baby: three drastically different lyricists who’ve warped the city’s perception in various ways. From the bottom comes Illuminati G to show that the city has even more in store on his new project, Times Up. And, it turns out, he’s successful, utilizing a vast palette of beats for a wondrous preview of what he has in store.

Times Up is the perfect title for him. He’s been somewhat slept on so far in his career, even with the release of booming hits like “Everythang” with Polo 2Time$. So he put a timer on people sleeping on him and with the tape’s release, it’s finally over.

It starts with “The Masterpiece Is Complete” that sounds like the Terminator’s revenge. “Eat quick, dine and dash/ Be quick, about the cash,” he says, drawing you into his aesthetically pleasing world where he carefully selects the vision that he gives listeners. It’s a great start that immerses you in the world that he plants you in.

Further creative exploits continue with the piano-driven “Hi Tech” that further crafts this world under a completely different sound than what came before it. His rhymes here are equally as adept, referencing NBA 2K20 and other pop culture phenomenons with ease.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. Times Up is a journey best experienced through your own personal lens. The rapper dissolves you in his own reality and makes the stakes clear with pensive tracks like “Cold World” and “Come Down” that he’s not to be toyed with and you should take him serious. This results in one hell of a release that’ll leave you stumbling when you try to reconnect to reality.

Now’s the time to wake up to Illuminati G. Times Up is alarm clock that everyone needs.
