about

“Spiders” is the first single by Illa J following his second solo album ILLA J LP released in 2015 via Bastard Jazz Records. Produced by Calvin Valentine, the single is the very first track out of 10 songs they created in four days working out of Calvin’s home studio in North Hollywood. The pair continued the collaborations and now have about 30 songs together.

Spiders is an upbeat trippy psychedelic hip hop tune. From Illa J’s visual lyrics to Calvin’s psychedelic synths and banging drums you will be hypnotized and really feeling you have “spiders crawling on your skin”.

Showcasing his singing as well as his songwriting, Illa J keeps moving towards showing that he is not just a rapper. This versatility was well received with his last album.

lyrics

From the depths of Detroit..Planet Conant Gardens...
comes the alien John Regal...here........to give you a hit of this..
One hit of this...have ya head twisted..have yo mind blown...
have yo mind gone.....

Feels like spiders crawling on my skin
Maybe I'm trippin
Maybe I'm itchin
Feels like spiders crawling on my skin
Maybe I'm trippin
Maybe I'm itchin

These voices deep inside of me keep hauntin me at night
I can't sleep..nope..
I can't think...and my breath my stinks
Why's my hair pink
Why am I wearin a mink
Why are people starin at me
Are they starin at my bling
Is it cause I'm wearin a ring
And I care even though I act like I don't care what they think
Is it somethin crawlin on me....

Feels like spiders crawling on my skin
Maybe I'm trippin
Maybe I'm itchin
Feels like spiders crawling on my skin
Maybe I'm trippin
Maybe I'm itchin

These voices deep inside of me keep hauntin me at night
I can't sleep..nope..
I can't think...and my breath my stinks
Whys my hair pink
Why am I wearin a mink
Why are people starin at me
Are they starin at my bling
Is it cause I'm wearin a ring
And I care even though I act like I don't care what they think
Is it somethin crawlin on me.... yeah..uh

What the fuck they put into this medicine I'm hella sick
These edibles be crazy have me feelin so irrelevant
Like I'm not from this planet, can you find any evidence
While I preach and I teach in this booth like a reverend
How I beast on these beats can I be any better
Like a king..a president, a C-E-O, a legend
Get this green with my team light it up and touch heaven
and in a couple of seconds..uh..yeah..

Feels like spiders crawling on my skin
Maybe I'm trippin
Maybe I'm itchin
Feels like spiders crawling on my skin
Maybe I'm trippin
Maybe I'm itchin
