About My Work:

iLL’s passion comes from his response to growing up in an under-served neighborhood. Drugs, violence, sex, and crime showed up in his life; so they show up in his rhymes… just not how you may think. Music became a refuge for the emcee at the age of 14 and continued when he joined the hip hop group, DaFilled, at eighteen. His experience with DaFilled soon led him to be considered a local VIP on the Indianapolis party scene. Often being invited to perform at local hot spots, he used each opportunity to spread his flavor to party goers. The more prominent iLL became locally, the more he set his sights on national exposure. In 2004 that opportunity came. DaFilled beat out over 300 other performers to garner a spot on the Legendary Showtime at the Apollo showcase. After the Apollo, the hip hop trio’s career began to kick into high gear. DaFilled highlights include 5 consecutive Underground Music Award nominations, several local endorsement deals, and an international motion picture placement.
