What Ever Happened To: Ill Al Skratch?

On this edition of Forgotten Fridays we reminisce over you, Ill Al Skratch. The New York duo (Ill & DJ Al Skratch) first hit the scene in 1994 with their single, the underground hit "Where My Homiez (Creep With Me)". Looking back now, it's a pretty ironic and fitting song title, considering we have no idea where they are anymore. They followed up with their second single, the smoothed out "I'll Take Her" (above) which actually featured Brian McKnight. This was the jam back then, and both songs still get necks moving. Classic 90's New York shit.

Ill & Al made a pretty decent imprint on the hip hop community. They released 2 albums. They were featured on multiple soundtracks. They even did a song with a skinny Shaq. But where are they now? They haven't released an album since 1997. Their last appearance was in 2002 on an unofficial release from Nice and Smooth called "Dr. Feelgood." They said they plan on recording again once they can "make it pop-off exactly the way they want it to."

If anyone has any more info regarding the whereabouts of Ill Al Skratch, please contact us immediately. We need your help.

Thank you,

I still have both of their albums to this day, both good records, especially the second album which was honestly dope. These guys definitely should have been bigger than they were.
