Illa's Power Moves album featured a more-polished production style along with co-production and vocal contributions by fellow crew member The Legendary Traxster. By 1997, Traxster had already produced the gold & platinum debuts of Chicago's Twista and Do or Die, causing some of Illa's core-fans to blame the pairing for Illa's straying from his signature sound. The album's first single and video "Old School Tactics" featured E.C.'s counterpart Rhymefest. Rhymefest (Che Smith) would later win a Grammy for co-writing the song "Jesus Walks" on Kanye West's debut album The College Dropout. Rhymefest would also go on to win an Oscar for co-penning the song "Glory" featured in the motion picture SelmaPower Moves was publicized in the Beastie Boys-owned Grand Royal magazine and Rap Pages, among other niche periodicals that specialized in the major independent artists of the time. While Power Moves failed to reach the commercial success Illa appeared poised to gain at the time, it did further his appeal within the midwest's gang community, who already embraced his regional hit "What You Be About?" as classic. Released by Chicago Label Wicked Entertainment but distributed by Cargo Music's Chicago branch who would fold a mere 6 months after Power Moves hit store shelves and the album would be out of print roughly a year after its release.
