Hip Hop collective Spillage Village is a lyrical and soulful force to be reckoned with in this culture of rap, and they've proved that going against the grain spells success. The group consists of members Olu, Wowgr8, J.I.D, Mereba, 6LACK, Jurdan Bryant, Benji, and Hollywood JB, and on Friday (September 25), Spillage Village shared their anticipated project, Spilligion. The album was crafted as many Spillage Village members hunkered down together during the pandemic and not only shared a living space, but creative ideas. They questioned whether or not making music at such an uncertain time would matter to listeners, but they went on to unite musically, regardless.
âIn the Revenge of the Dreamers sessions, there was a little downtime, but most of it was with the goal of making music in mind,â Olu said. âSome days when we were working on Spilligion, there were days where we would just have a bonfire, sit outside, and make sâmores. Some days we would play Monopoly or Trouble all night.â The games may have been intense but they were bonding experiences.
