IL Boi is back with more heat, new single ‘Lit’ ft Rittz


The Big homie is back at it again. This time around he is working with charting billboard artist Rittz to bring you a new record called LIT.

The track starts with a familiar voice. Rittz doesn’t waste any time and destroys the beat with his impressive wordplay and his ability to ride the moment very smoothly.

IL Boi comes right behind Rittz with a strong verse and tone. IL Boi also delivers some nice wordplay throughout the track.

This is a hot record and is a must-listen. It is short and gets right to the point. Overall it is both written and put together well. I love both styles of the artist and how they came together to create something that will keep us Lit and wanting more.
