The Boy Illinois Interview with #GowherePHX

At the end of 2013, Lupe Fiasco went on his Tetsuo and Youth Preview Tour and brought along The Boy Illinois. When we sat down when the tour hit Phoenix, he told me he had some big plans in store for 2014. To me it looks like he is doing just that. The Boy Illinois started off the year with the release of his single “Winter & Construction” right before heading to SXSW this week to give the fans some brand new music to perform. Illi also mentioned to Julian on The Radio and I that he would like to take his career overseas. In my opinion, I think that it is a great move and something he will do easily. From just talking to him, I know he knows exactly what he wants to do and how he wants to do it. Aside from his music being so unique and his whole “Luxury rap” style he just has something that works. Just an all around good dude. I could tell he is about his business and knows what he is doing with his music. The Boy Illinois is one artist to look out for in 2014. Enjoy our interview above!
