ILLUS Bio:

ILLUS has been recording music and illustrating comics since 1991 (selling over 250,000 records with no airplay or record label deal), recording and touring with such legends as Chuck D and Public Enemy, DJ Johnny Juice, R.A. the Rugged Man, Dilated Peoples and Blackalicious, and garnering praise from the likes of Wendy Day and numerous HIPHOP legends. But he has reached a whole new level of excellence with his new album- FEEL GOOD MUSIC produced by J.J. Brown. Feel Good Music is a 7-song opus that displays the passion, soul and heart of the artist with a true feel-good HIPHOP vibe. ILLUS is not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve as he raps about his love for his wife, family and friends as well as the microphone and the culture that inspired the man. FEEL GOOD MUSIC is more than just nostalgia or a dedication to all of the great HIPHOP pioneers, it is a true modern day classic that captures the essence of all that is good about HIPHOP music and brings it to light in the modern age.
