VIDEO: Illy – “Cigarettes (ft. Hue Blanes)”

This video isn’t brand new, but it’s really surprising that it doesn’t have more views! It’s such a strong single, off an album that got a whole heap of attention, and the artistic direction the clip takes is pretty cool too. The video was shot around Melbourne, including at Red Door Sounds in Collingwood and The Corner Hotel in Richmond. It was directed by Andrew Wood of Rockaway Creative.

Illy’s breakthrough album The Chase really threw him into the Aussie hip-hop limelight, and this song is a great example of just how much he deserves that success. That chorus has so much potential for huge moments at gigs and festivals. I can see people waving their lighters already.
