DJ Devastate was a talented Swedish producer/deejay. Not too long ago, Coalmine Records and Counterweight Records released “In Recollection: A Dual Label Anthology”, a posthumous compilation album in remembrance of the late DJ’s life and legacy.

DJ Devastate – “Crime After Crime” feat. Illa Ghee

“Illa Ghee is an artist that DJ Devastate always wanted to work with. So shortly after his passing, we reached out to Illa and were able to make it happen in Dev’s honor.” – Coalmine Records

Crime After Crime” is a bangin’ hip-hop tune which features Brooklyn’s wordsmith Illa Ghee. Also, it contains an urban narrative and witty street-wise vocals. Plus, it possesses a gritty instrumentation embedded with a sampled scratch hook of The Notorious B.I.G.’s vocals from the late emcees’ “Suicidal Thoughts” and “Sky’s the Limit” singles.

‘In Recollection: A Dual Label Anthology’ features a stellar line-up including Chuck D, Bishop Lamont, C.L. Smooth, Skyzoo, and many more. The project is available in both digital and vinyl formats. Check it out below via Spotify.
