Don’t be fooled. Despite what his name may suggest, The Boy Illinois is not making any kiddie moves. This rising star has a sound developed enough to blow most other rappers out of the water. We first heard Illi, as he is known, with his debut mixtape Inhale Part 1: State Representative boasting a familiar smooth, raw Chi-town flow. From being the first Black performer at the Native American Music Awards to working on his Jean Baptiste with the likes of famed producer Coop, we can see The Boy Illinois is on his way to being your next favorite lyricist. No doubt that fame is on the horizon for Chicago’s rising young star.
