Biography

ILLA GHEE is the future Boss of Da Bosses. Possessing a unique blend of hardcore lyrics to go along with a veteran's delivery, and a street savvy flow, this BK native is poised for a quiet takeover. Born and raised in Brooklyn's own Sumner Housing Projects (aka Sumnerville, Outta Bounds NYC), ILLA would make the smooth transition from street crimes to rising MC stardom. After making a memorable appearance on Mobb Deep's Hell On Earth LP ("Can't Get Enough Of It"), GHEE had the misfortune of falling victim to the streets. As a result of this untimely encounter with the law, Illa had to do a 6-years and postponed his spot as BK's next boss.
Upon his release in 2002, Illa picked up right where he left off before his incarceration. He recorded at a break neck pace and, found himself being placed in DJ Kay Slay's "Best of Freestyles" top ten for his "3 Million Freestyle". Soon after, Ghee recorded "Medicine Rap" featuring Prodigy of Mobb Deep. The song made it's way onto DJ Kay Slay's Street Sweepers Vol. 5 edition mixtape. ILLA GHEE also appeared on Mobb Deep's LandSpeed released "Free Agents" Mixtape, which sold over 650,000 copies. Still unsigned but working at a feverish pace, ILLA GHEE managed to appear on DJ Big Mike's West Coast Mixtape, Mobb Deep's Murda Muzik Soundtrack, DJ Mello's Chemical Files Mixtape, P-Cutta's Street Wars 12 Mixtape, DJ Premier's Step Ya Game Up Mixtape, DJ Onpoint's Exclusive Radio Mixtape Vol. 1, DJ Kay Slay's Street Sweepers Protect Ya Neck Mixtape, and the Payola Bros. Street Beef Vol. 8.
Unfazed by the industry politics that began to follow him because of his Mobb Deep affiliation, ILLA GHEE kept working and his hard work finally paid off. World famous hip hop producer The Alchemist, tapped Illa Ghee to appear alongside himself, Prodigy of Mobb Deep, and Nina Sky on the bangin street anthem "Hold U Down". Armed with just his lyrical talent and veteran work ethic, ILLA GHEE spit one of the hottest verses of the year ("For all da niggaz I war for/blow da 44 for) and, made a name for himself by holding his own with the other heavyweights on the song. He raised the bar for other up and coming unsigned artists by appearing on a Top 40 radio hit, receiving over 200 BDS Spins per week, and having a video airing on BET's Rap City and MTV2. With the help of his Company IMOR Ent., ILLA GHEE has completed 6 highly acclaimed street mixtapes. "Body Music"(2002), The DJ Pistol Pete hosted "Best Known Secret"(2003), "Closed Session"(2003) a mixtape featuring Prodigy of Mobb Deep.
