Though you might not yet be familiar with Ill Camille, you might recognize her voice as the icy-cool river running through the second half of Kendrick Lamar’s 12-minute opus “Sing About Me, I’m Dying of Thirst” (from his 2012 major label debut, Good Kid, M.A.A.D City). She dropped her own debut LP The Pre-Write in 2011, followed by Illustrated in 2012. But then the Los Angeles MC went silent for years; in an interview with Bandcamp, she explains that during that hiatus, she lost her father, her grandmother, and her uncle. In 2017 Ill Camille reemerged with the stunning, triumphant Heirloom. Throughout its 16 tracks, she raps about bottomless pain, systemic obstacles, her dreams, and her own warrior-like strength over gauzy backdrops that pay homage to her jazz, R&B, and old-school hip-hop influences. Ill Camille’s Portland tour stop is a can’t-miss, especially considering that Portland-by-way-of-NYC soul singer Fritzwa is the opening act.
