Hip Hop duo Envy and Fancy, now known together as iLLism, define themselves as being rooted in the art of being so dope, so fly, so SICK (iLL) that those actively involved in the movement (ism) cannot possibly be stopped.
In October 2016 iLLism dropped " A Side" of their debut double-EP "Definition Of iLL." "We came together as a group because it just made sense" says Envy. "And now we have this dope project that really captures who are individually but also who we are together. You can hear it and feel it" adds Fancy. "Our music our rules." On January 29th, 2017 iLLism complteted the full release dropping the much anticipated "B Side" which included an almost sold out show at Minneapolis' historic venure 7th Street Entry.
It was no secret that when solo-artists Envy and Fancy began to collaborate in 2015 that each core-member of the duo brought extreme talent to the game. All of which included a spot on Billboard's hip hip chart and features on TV networks like E!, MTV, VH1, ABC, Starz & more – both Envy and Fancy have earned their stellar reputations for bringing true entertainment straight to the people.
Combining their skills, talent & experience into a sum-total even more spectacular than its individual parts – iLLism is ready to shake up the entire globe. "Yea I'm Charismatic but I'm also raw and gritty" says Envy when describing his own personal rap style. With a vibrant & smooth blend of dope lyrics, wired beats and flowing, harmonious vocalizations – they bring an all-new & dynamic sound to music through their own sensational styles with elements of 90's/00's-era Hip-Hop and modern R&B in the mix. "I'd like to describe myself as having depth and personality. It's pretty but imperfect" says Fancy.
The Definition of iLL documents the very beginning of iLLism – through 14 tracks full of raw depth and charismatic personality…the journey begins… and the adventure in sound is set to continue as support for the movement grows and the entire world gets iLL.
