The Rowdee Review: Pennjamin Bannekar “ILLWrite”


The city of Chicago has continually churned out quality hip-hop as of late, providing a steady stream of acts that have made a significant impact on music.  Hoping to be the next figure to emerge from the Chi is an emcee known as Pennjamin Bannekar, whose new single “ILLwrite” attempts to establish the cleverly named artist into our collective thought process.  Bannekar’s smooth delivery and witty wordplay blend nicely with the horn heavy production of the track, showcasing a developing skill set that has him a few steps ahead of the average rapper getting airplay in today’s cookie cutter urban radio dynamic.  Is this the next “guy”?  That remains to be seen.  What can be said is that this song is a decent starting point for him, definitely something to build on.  If this is what we can expect, we might have to add him to the already crowded roster of Chicago’s ill emcees at some point…..we’ll see
