'Illin' (recorded in the mid-Eighties) was young Andy Cooper's first ever production and vocal performance. Only 11-years old, Andy teamed up with a local, Long Beach legend named Grandmaster Sandblaster who, as the song's lyrics would lead one to assume, died many years ago from multiple illnesses. The track was originally released on the independent label ACE (Andy Cooper Entertainment) but is now available here; enjoy!
