In our industry, more specifically the music and fashion industries, talent is everywhere. The problem is, a lot of people are often overlooked and not given the shine they deserve which is why we’re kicking off a new series right here at ImFlashy that aims to showcase those unique individuals who are striving to do something big. Each month we’re going to bring you a new Artist Profile that will allow you to connect with like-minded people and discover someone or something you weren’t familiar with.

To kick off the month of March, we sat down with Chicago based emcee The Boy Illinois. Watch as he discusses the history behind his name, his in-house production team The Baron Boys, his message, style, SXSW and a whole lot more. Keep an eye out for Illy. You won’t be disappointed.
