As an artist, Illz has released a steady stream of independent Hip Hop music since 1998, most recently with the acclaimed EP Cinco De My Flow and continuing soon with his next release, United Slaves of America 2. As an entrepreneur and purveyor of battle rap and Hip Hop culture overall, he has build Grind Time Now into one of YouTube’s most widely-watched battle rap leagues on the Internet, featuring some of most bar-heavy up and comers in the battle rap world. As a teacher, he guides and mentors willing students in the ways of spontaneous creativity through a unique program he developed and teaches called Controlled Spontaneous Expression (CSE).

He is a positive, powerful force in the continued expansion of Hip Hop culture, spreading a timely and thought provoking message through his music and through the power of the mind.
