Upon announcing his addition to the SUH conglomerate, The Boy Illinois stopped in at Gowhere HQ where he and our very own Stan Perry talked about the past, present, and future. In the video above you'll catch Illi touch base on his upcoming project The Memoirs of Gilbert Gaston, which he titled after his grandfather, his family, Chicago blogs, connecting with MTV's Sway, as well as his upcoming college tour and much more. Be sure to tune in above and support one of the illest up and comers in the game right now. #YER
TIBS NOTE: Be sure to watch the interview to also get a glimpse of the hilarious Stan Perry, who starts a beatbox at the end - to which Illi nicely freestyles over, hah!
Chicago native The Boy Illinois made an appearance here in NY at Dominion for a performance at Karmaloop's Stalley show. It's never easy getting a NY crowd to rock with you, especially when they're restlessly waiting for the main performance. But Illi went up there with much confidence and let the crowd know not to sleep on Chi-town rappers. We met up with him after his performance for an interview to let him get anybody who doesn't already know about him, up to date on all of his projects such as the final tape to his 4 part series, Inhale. So watch the vid above for the interview (where he also talks about the "I Quit" video seen below) and clips from his performance.
