The performer promises to please his fans with novelties for a long time, so his discography will certainly be wider. Listeners in Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine are waiting for a rap artist with performances in many cities. Most likely, Ilya will perform with his old tracks, namely: "Smoke often" (which is Zippo's most popular hit), "Remainder of words", "Doll", "Burning".
