DJ Muggs vs. Ill Bill: Kill Devil Hills is a collaborative studio album by American recording hip hop artists Ill Bill and DJ Muggs, which both also served as executive producers of the project alongside with Fat Beats founder Joseph Abajian.[1] The sixteen track album was released on August 31, 2010 via Fat Beats Records[2][3] and peaked at #21 on Billboard Rap Albums chart.[4]

Production[edit]

All songs produced by DJ Muggs except for tracks #4 & #11, which are produced by G. Rocka and DJ Khalil respectively. G Rocka is also credited for contributing the drum programming on "Ill Bill TV" and "Secrets Worth Dying For". With Muggs starting to incorporate more live instrumentation into his production with this and the other installments in his "Vs..." series, Steve Ferlazzo plays additional keyboards on the majority of the songs and Cypress Hill's Eric Bobo plays congas on "Chase Manhattan".

This is the fourth album of Muggs' "Vs..." series.

As it says in the CD booklet, the album is dedicated to Ill Bill's uncle, Howard Tenebaum (1953-2010), who passed away five month before the record release.[5][1]
