"Trouble Maker" contains a sample of the late great 2pac from the OG classic "So much Pain" off the "Above The Rim SoundTrack" BeN iLLa touches the struggles of growing up & being labeled as a trouble maker in his early youth. He also touches on the subjects of unity and racial equality, Word another fellow Sioux City Emcee helps out on the 2nd verse giving warning to consequences of choosing a criminal life. This record was inspired completely from 2pac's concepts of real life struggle & over-coming adversity with the will to survive. A breathe of fresh air from the constant propaganda of negative rap thats droned into our heads daily by the mainstream. Make sure you keep up with BeN iLLa, social media links below.
