The Untold Story of Ill Al Scratch

I thought they were decent 1 hit wonders lol

Ill & Al Skratch had the summer of 93 in a choke hold with their infectious smash hit ” I’ll take her and where the homiez”.The Brooklyn Uptown connection after that dropped the Album Creep with me . Only to be bamboozled by their Production company and Label. Not Until now have their story been told. This is a story of persistence and determination. The Ups and Downs of the Business should never deter you if you destine to win.
