What happens when ultra emcee’s collaborate with a generous dose of realness? You encounter “Illuminated Animals!” 4-IZE and fellow beast emcee’s are shining new light on Hip Hop with the “Illuminated Animals” project. The project is presented by Upstairs Studio, an Atlanta based recording studio whose clientele include De La Soul, MF DOOM, Musiq Soulchild and more.

“Everybody has a beast laying dormant inside them” says 4-IZE. “Illuminated Animals was created to shine light on that beast inside of us all. Waking up that sleeping monster takes conscious effort and knowledge of self. That’s exactly what everyone on the project does with hopes to inspire all those who listen to do the same – Wake up their inner monster!”

4-IZE is joined by fellow emcee’s Señor Kaos, Punchlyne, and 4-IZE’s brother Number 2. Lending their soulful essence are vocal artists Anthony David, Scar and Yirayah.

The entire project is produced by Floyd the Locsmif (50 Cent, Ceelo Green, O.C, J Live) and DJ Rasta Root (CEO Smokin Needles Records & DJ/Manager Phife ATCQ).

“Illuminated Animals” is the follow up project to “Fantastik 4-IZE” album which 4-IZE released independently in the summer of 2007. His first album includes appearances from Ludacris, Big Rube, Number 2 & M.P. With featured production by L.T. Moe, Honorable C-Note, Omen, Floyd The Locsmif, J. Igloo, Montana Trax & Morgan The Mexican. “Fantastik 4-IZE” is available for purchase via
