Brooklyn rhyme smith Illanoiz released the video for his recent single “Caina” today. The cinematic visuals come fresh off the heels of Illanoiz’s crowd-owning performance at Bushwick’s First Annual Puerto Rican Day parade last weekend. Premiered via ThisIs50.com, the video is described as having “…Colombian cartel vibes while telling a rags to riches story of the enticing lures of the dope game.”
A descriptive cautionary tale on the hustler’s come up, “‘Caina’ is about the person who’s willing to risk it all for a dream of making it out of poverty to indulge in the luxuries of the upper echelon,” says Illanoiz. “Caina” is available on all streaming services now.
“I had a lot of fun making this video,” states Illanoiz. “Getting the right locations for the whole cartel theme with the limitations of New York City but with the help of my friend and business partner, DJ Migzz we were able to find the perfect spot for that Colombian Narco Trafficante feel. It all just came together beautifully.”
Illanoiz is a Brooklyn, NY native, once a prominent lyricist in the NY battle scene, he’s known for dropping scorching freestyle over the hottest new tracks on YouTube. Both his November release, “Down” and latest track “Caina” highlight his brilliance as a rhyme slayer and storyteller. Illanoiz is gearing up to release a full-length project soon, on which “Down” and “Caina” will appear.
