Listen: The Boy Illinois x Ben One – “Number 1”

If you haven’t noticed. The Boy Illinois is out here working! He’s got another joint for y’all to rock to. This time around, he recruited the vocals of fellow Chicago artist, Ben One to create a track called “Number 1”. It has production from Xcel, who has notable production credits with legend and Trill O.G Bun B and one of Chicago’s best emcee’s ever, Shawna.

“Number 1” is all about where Illi and Ben One are on their way to. The message is simple to digest. Make it to the top and you’ll be number 1. Hence, the title of the song. With that said, you still a little time to hop on that Illi bandwagon. My suggestion is before it takes off at lightning speed.

Get your ears around this joint. And If you like it. You know how to show your support and the results that come with that.

Lastly, light up the notifications one time if you want to be down with the guys who want to be number 1.
