"Illson 2012," the latest track from Queens hip-hop heroes Mobb Deep, was produced by Aaron LaCrate for his Milkcrate Athletics clothing line. The song brings LaCrate's aesthetic full circle by paying homage to the t-shirt design that made his brand famous. "I wanted to produce a track with the group that inspired the Illson t-shirt design, Mobb Deep," says LaCrate. "The t-shirt was worn by everyone from Jay-Z to Eminem, so it's kind of amazing to me to be able to produce the real 'Illson 2012' song with Mobb Deep, some of New York's most important MCs."
