Where are you from? I was raised in La Puente, CA. Currently living in Covina, CA but I was born in Michoacán, Mexico.
How did you get into doing music? This is a funny question for me because I never aspired to be an artist. Although I was a super fan of music. One day I was hanging out with a few friends and they were talking about forming a band. The drummer said "Illie you should be our lead singer!" I told him "Dude I can't sing?!" He said "You can rap!" And after that I joined as back up to the lead singer. When the band broke up I still continued on a solo mission. At first because I really enjoyed being on a stage. Later it became a way to really express what I was feeling and to speak positivity and truth to people.
What do you want people to take from your music? I really hope people hear transparency above all. I also hope they are inspired by words. I talk about my own experiences in every song and I feel like I've been through quite a bit in my 26 years of life. If I could re-direct someone away from making the bad decisions I made, I would feel accomplished.
