Greenfield is without doubt one of the most creative and explosive Hip Hop artists to come from Africa by way of Ghana.
The talented artistic rap duo of Ali and iLL Big, have, in a period where questions have been asked about the ‘state of health’ in the hip hop genre, maintained the founding principles in hip hop by ensuring lyrical content, concepts and delivery , is always present in every single one of their songs.
Having performed on various stages and in shows across Ghana, Ali and iLL Big and Greenfield for that matter, bring a whole lot of experience in song writing and spectacular live show performances and in doing so bringing audiences the whole package.
Currently working on finishing their debut album ‘Green state of Mind’, Greenfield is set to cause massive shake up on the hip hop scene in africa and the rest of the world.
The album showcases their versatility in song writing and composition . Songs like ‘No Go Lie’, ‘Maya’, ‘Finish Line’ ,will without question mark a new era in the standard of hip hop music in africa, on their releases later in 2010. JTown, D-Black, E.L are just a few featured artists on the album, Green state of Mind.
In recent years Ali and iLL Big have worked with several hip hop artists in Ghana such as Jay-So, E.L, and J.Town, D-Black on tracks like ‘Feel The Vibe’ and ‘Keep Dancing’ on the ‘The Skillions Demotapes’ which received favorable airplay in africa and the rest of the world.
