BandHip Hop

Cross cultural hip hop. I possess versatility within the genre of hip hop that can bring you vibes that are street, club, dance/social, or tracks that are more thought provoking.


Versatility within the genre of hip hop is his specialty. Whether you want the hard core street music, sounds that can make you dance or vibes that are more profound and thought provoking, this artist can get it done! iLLYA is a Detroit native and he has a message that we all can relate to, it's simple, if you want something... go get it! With his love for achievement, iLLYA is always inspiring others to follow their dreams. His dream is to not only have his words heard worldwide but he also has a desire to live out the legacy of his brother whom had a premature death. As iLLYA continues on his quest to stardom, he ask each listener to do three things, "Dream with me. Believe in me. Fly with me".


Dream Believe Fly

Written By: ILLYA

(Verse 1)
Addicted to the flashing lights/shooting for the stars I hope I'm aiming right/the picture so vivid if its painted nice/this my chance and I'm glad that it came tonight/my life, above and beyond living/wondering my plight cuz it's somethin beyond different/giving you my life I just wonder if y'all listening/searching for a calling if its Long distance/although its may change in an instance/ I remain in my lane staying consistent/mama in that line for assistance/ poppa Rolling Stones out the kitchen kinda caught my attention/it was mentioned all gold it don't glisten/but it ain't no pension in that ball that he was pitching/ I'm beginning my mission/with pain and affliction/a path got created got a vision I'm fulfilling...

(Chorus 2xs)
Now put ya hands to the sky/buckle ya seatbelt, fasten up and let's ride/ don't mind me I'm just living my life like (la la la la la... La la) dream believe fly

(Verse 2)
Swear to the air that when I asked for it/didn't know my feature presentation would create such a fast forward/but I'm glad for it, microphones and track boards /wit that being said be careful what u ask lord/7 day weekends and passports/if ballin is my hobby When i drive dont crash boards/dunk off the rebound, I was blind but I see now/the construction of my destiny is now sweep the debris out/such a wonderful feeling/when music get mimicked by old women and children/people wanna fit in by standin out and just looking different/drive ya own lane, steer ya own vision/on my heart, on my heart, cuz when you speaking from it that what sets you apart/life is about how you end it but can't forget where you start... Like...

Female vocals: dream believe fly/ you can touch the sky/catch me in the air/ if you Rollin with me then imma see you there...

(Chorus 2xs)
