Long Story Short is a tale about falling in and out of love with people, places family, friendship, hip-hop, and travelling the world, a serious hospital scare and the ensuing long road to recovery. All shaped by the unique privilege of growing up Australian. Long Story Short opens with Generation Y, a politically driven ode to the power of those whose days as the underdog are numbered. An anthemic opening number powered by M-Phazes production work. And these are not plain beats coupled with lyrics complex for their own sake, but rather some of the best produced hip-hop beats in the country, with lyrics that, even when simple in delivery maintain a complexity of message.

Illy enlists the help of fellow Crooked Eye crew member MPhazes (producer of Bliss n Esos Flying Colours) and Jackson Jacksons J-Skub (Phrases Clockwork) for the bulk of the album, with stellar contributions from up and comers J-Squared and Ta-Ku. The friendship extends to the albums guest performers, boasting collaborations with Pegz (Black Cap Rap), Spit Syndicate and Solo (Red Light/Green Light) and Phrase and NFa (For You). It is a compelling collection that embodies the spirit and scope of Australian hip hop, the opening chapter of a promising fable.
