Zajazza & iLLspokinn – Vagabond Road

The two Hip-Hop globetrotters present “Vagabond Road”, a spontaneous, intense and dynamic 8 track EP that will take you on board for an authentic musical road trip.

The two vagabonds went up and down the roads and performed in venues all over the world, but were yet to release a project together. This EP was recorded between New-York and Lyon, mixed in Brazil by the great Cristian Dal Solio and mastered in Paris by the one and only Blanka. The 8 tracks reflect iLLspokinn and Zajazza’s personal and shared journeys: From rap to jazz, from boom bap to Latin and African music. All this musical richness is captured in samples and spiced up with fine scratching and conscious lyrics. The beautiful cover artwork, courtesy of Pixadelic, gives a perfect glimpse of the project spirit.

“We called the EP Vagabond Road as it sums up our Hip-Hop Globetrotters’ lives. We have always been on the road, going from places to places, chosen or random ones. These travels and experiences aroused our interest in world music, with a special taste for Latin and African vibes.” (Zajazza)

iLLspokinn is a renown freestyler and hip-hop activist. He is the one behind the “Freestyle Mondays” nights, started in New York and now happening in three different countries. With this EP, he shows his lyrical skills, combined with an incredible flow. In this 8 track journey, he shares the road with highly talented artists such as the multi instrumentalist Fraser, from Lyon, the New York MC Core Rhythm, DJ P from Lyon, the Bissau-Guinean diva Fattu Djakité and the Ethiopian singer Yared Asnaké, who perfectly concludes this musical road trip with his enchanting voice. The whole thing is driven by Zajazza’s stunning beats.



Irony and fine lyricism are iLLspokinn’s chosen weapons to approach subjects such as racism in the US, love, life, self-introspection or his return to his roots.Zajazza carefully selected samples according to the theme of each song and his music is in perfect harmony with the lyrics. You will find this complementarity between the MC and the beatmaker, peculiar to the greatest hip hop duos. So don’t hesitate and come on board with the two hip hop vagabonds.


The first single of this project is with the same name "Vagabond Road" released on music video few months ago:
