Born and bred from Melbourne’s tough musical utopia, Illy stands tall amongst his peers. With his solo repertoire forged through 5 releases since 2009, there’s no sign of him slowing down anytime soon. Releasing one of the biggest tunes of 2016 already with ‘Papercuts’ Illy marches forward as the new voice in Generation Now hip-hop. A writer, a lyrical activist, an observer, and a poet, he treks through the global jigsaw with firm optimism and understanding of its rollercoaster nature. Tales, tribulations and tributes to the nature of his youth, his culture, and the inevitable questions faced. He is the heart and soul of the underdog, the future flag-bearer of a much maligned generation.
