The Prerequisite is ILL Conscious’s sophomore album that was released February of 2018. On this project, ILL displays his lyrical prowess over a soundscape created by international producers ranging from Scandinavia to South America. Considering that the first album had very serious and conscious undertones, The Prerequisite introduced a different tone from the Baltimore emcee as a insightful bragadocious lyricist who can still spit that raw grit. During The Prerequisite campaign, ILL Conscious and rap counterparts Dirt Platoon & Guy Grams went on a 4 date mini tour in Paris, France, and London, England. It also created a buzz in Chile where ILL later toured in 2019.
