INTRODUCING IL BOI
What’s going on? Please introduce yourself.
Hey, this is IL Boi hip hop artist straight out of the midwest.
Tell us about life growing up in your city.
I was born and raised in Illinois. I had a great child but had to rise from negative situations and shake that small-town mentality I faced growing up in such a small town.
Who or what was your musical influence?
I grew up listening to rap and Rnb all my life. I think a big influence was the No Limit and Cash Money area. It was a great time for music and it shaped me once I began rapping.
Tell us about the most valuable investment you’ve made for your music career.
I would say just investing in myself as an artist. Networking, traveling, and being willing to spend marketing dollars on me.
You have a new single ‘7 Days A Week’ tell us more about it.
7 Days A Week is my first collaboration with me and 23 Kp. The songs showcase both artists expressing their love for music 7 days out of the week. It’s a vibe and is catchy.
Besides music, what else can we catch you doing?
I love to BBQ and play games a lot.
What’s next for you?
I plan to keep building on the name IL Boi. I also plan to release more music and visuals.
Where can we follow you online?
Any shout outs?
Shoutout to everybody who’s been following my journey and rocking with me.
Calico Blue born Antoine Freeman December 7, 1987 in Jacksonville, FL is an American hip hop/rap recording and performing artist. Calico brings a refreshing sound to today’s music scene. He has a revitalizing sound in an era of hip-hop where much of the music sounds alike. Calico Blue has a deep hypnotizing voice that can be closely compared to the likes of Kevin Gates, Gorilla Zoe or Trae Da Truth.
Before we get into the mixtape lets discuss “Glow”
Calico’s first single produced by M. Geezy. Glow, the intro to “The Pursuit”
mixtape is where Calico delivers a gritty, smooth and bold statement to the culture. This statement being that, “it isn’t just jewelry that makes him glow!”. Calico has his own shine.
Calico has released 3 videos prior to putting his mixtape “The Pursuit” out to the world. His lead single “GLOW” has a visual that compliments the music in such a way that you would think the director of the video, was somehow involved in making the music. It gives your eyes the right pictures for the right sounds. He also released a video for his lyrically hard hitting track “The Proof” as well as a visual shot in Miami, FL for his smooth, melodic rap track “Slide”.
Calico also includes 3 bonus songs on the mixtape “Know my Name”, “Posture” and “LL” which give a little insight to Blue’s most recent and up coming sound so that listeners can get a feel for the direction of his music which will surely make them stay tuned for more!
