If that new Styles P joint didn’t fill your gritty New York hip-hop quota for today, then Tragedy Khadafi’s “ILL-Luminous Flow” will certainly do the trick. The gutter-y, raw track is the first leak from his forthcoming Thug Matrix 3 mixtape, which is set to feature production from araabMUZIK, Audible Doctor, Ayatollah, and Now & Laterz. The latter is at the helm of “ILL-Luminous Flow,” yet another track that proves hip-hop is not solely a young man’s game. Khadafi might be 39 — he turns 40 on Aug. 13 — but you wouldn’t know it from listening to this. Personally, I can’t wait to hear his tracks with Ayatollah and Audible Doctor.
