Illadelp Releases New Single, 'Father's Love' Featuring Kismet Henderson

Huntington Beach, CA (PressExposure) September 19, 2013 -- Rapper Illadelp has released his latest single, titled "Father's Love." In addition to the performance of Illadelp himself, "Father's Love" also features the talents of Kismet Henderson. It has been released on the Red Carpet Records music label.

The sound of "Father's Love" is classy, bluesy, full of soul and groove and packs lyrical punch that recalls artists such as Tupac Shakur and KRS One. It is a deeply sincere song that declares Illadelp's undying devotion to his daughters. Cool, jazzy piano chords are set off by a flute played in the Arabic style, giving the song a smoky, exotic undertone. Illadelp's delivery is direct, clear, intelligent and poetic, and the addition of Kismet Henderson's brilliant treatment makes the track soar. This may be the first Illadelp material many music fans will have heard, but it is certain to prove the tip of the spear.

Illadelp was raised on the streets of North Philadelphia. His prominent stage name comes from the slang, 'ill,' and Philadephia. His sister Clairessa often challenged him to rap about things she would point out to him at random to train him at the art of freestyle rap. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps after high school and served as a sergeant, stationed in Okinawa.

He has performed at various venues, including but not limited to the Martini Lounge in San Diego, "The Arts Garage," "The Shed," the "Coast 2 Coast Industry Mixer," and the "IStandard Producer Showcase." He has recorded with ML The Truth of 100 Drums Production in Jackson, MS, and with Zaq and Mike from Mike and Ike Studios. He received his first placement under the direction of DJ Truuf in 2011 as his song, "I'm Ready" (feat. ML The Truth) was selected to be on the Converse Allstar Mixtape Vol. 2, which has received global attention and acclaim. His popular tracks, "Up In the Club" and "Ride With Me" are in full rotation on SwuvRadio and Mix1620, both hosted by DJ Truuf.

"Father's Love" by Illadelp, featuring Kismet Henderson, is available online worldwide.
