billy woods (all lowercase) is a hip-hop artist with a sharp point of view whether it is what he raps about and what he says, or his approach to his music and the nuts and bolts of his song construction. He is one of the top tier rappers who can use language with considerable poetic force. Stylistically, his music tends to be on the sparse side usually, with some space opened up for layering. Its exact shape obviously depends on the producer he is working with at the moment, but the overall sense of his brutally intense, thumping delivery remains more or less a constant. He has been collaborating with other boundary pushing artists like Moor Mother and ELUCID (his partner in Armand Hammer), as well as producers Blockhead, Kenny Segal, and Preservation, each of whom bring their own esthetic to woods' work.
