I.G.T. “Word To Life” 12” (2001)


I.G.T stands for Ill Gotten Team; a 4-member group established in 1997 in Roosevelt, Long Island. They were signed to Loud Records from 1998 to 2001 & had joints with a wide range of artists on and off the Loud Records label. This 12” in particular has production from The Large Professor and a feature from R&B singer Horace Brown. The track has a sample from “Don’t Say Goodnight” by The Isley Brothers. The song was released on “Street Music - The Preview,” a sampler from Loud Records, which also included a track with Inspectah Deck & production from the Alchemist, as well as the note “selections from the forthcoming Loud Records release The Alpha & The Omega in stores fall 2001.” I don’t believe the album was ever officially released, however you can listen to it via DatPiff if you’re interested. In the meantime, dig into the 12" to "Word To Life" below.
