I.L.L.Y. AKA YUNG GUNN started out with humble beginings, grew up in poverty 20 min outside Fayetteville, NC with his mother Jackie. His Father was from Eloy, AZ and met his mother while being in the military. ILLY has been back and forth every since from the Southwest to the South and is the exact reason why his flow is so different than most rappers. "I was influenced by different types of music since i was younger i would be hearing what the south offered as well as the west coast movement i liked both styles and incorporated them both into my music, J. Cole is the main reason i started rappin again cuz i was to the point where all music to me was sounding the same until I heard Cole. " He made me want to get back in the game after i went to his concert in pembroke." ILLY teams up with his Young Seph for his production. "Young Seph is the reason why I started rapping. I met Seph in like 2006 and we both played JUCO basketball on the same squad we used to chill in the dorms and I learned he made beats so one day he asked if I wanted to record on a track and the rest was history. "At first i just liked flowing i never used to record songs then I used a loan this past year to buy equipment directly after the J. Cole concert. I had alot going on in my life at the time and hearing Cole's flow that nite made my mind up on what i was put on this earth to do.....MUSIC!
