The album Illa J, produced without any samples by Potatohead People alongside a few groundbreaking co-producers, showcases a more mature and at-ease Illa J who is equally comfortable on top of an electronic boogie-inspired beat ("Universe") as he is getting grimey over a trunk rattling G-Funk joint (the Kaytranada co-produced "Strippers"). On tracks like the sparse, Rhodes driven "Cannonball" (co-produced by Montreal's Noo Bap), and the early 90s Spiritual / Acid Jazz inspired "Sunflower", Illa flexes his muscles through both song and rhyme. And of course being true to his roots, the classic Detroit boom-bap sound is ever present on joints like "French Kiss", "Perfect Game" (quite possibly Rap's only ode to bowling), and "Never Left", a touching tribute to his brother and a call-out to abusers of Dilla's legacy. Vancouver mainstay MC Moka Only contributes invaluably to the cohesive sound of the album as well, providing signature smoothed-out vocal choruses to tracks like "She Burned My Art", "All Good Pt. 2" and "Who Got It" (co-produced by Mosaic).
