Dedicated to the memory of his grandmother Essie Bell, Atlanta-based producer Illastrate has crafted a fine collection of laidback mood music for his latest release “Things Change”, with standout moments including the hazy soul of the Keith Sweat-sampling “We Love Us”, the optimistic, life-affirming knock of “We Good” and the head-nod jazz of “Nu’Dae”.

Long Island-raised, Los Angeles-based lyricist Rozewood rounds-off what has been an extremely productive twelve months with a project which is sure to be considered one of 2014’s best releases by anyone who hears it.
Blending his intricate, smooth-but-deadly rhyme style with the jazzy, soulful production of Atlanta’s Illastrate, Rozewood paints vivid images with his multi-layered wordplay which draw the listener deep into this talented artist’s own elegantly rugged creative zone.
