Bio

Gregory Gordon Jr. was born in Harvey, Illinois on August 11, 1985. He is currently 33 years old and started doing music at the age of 5 in 1990. He discovered his uncanny ability to write compelling stories at the age of 8 and began writing full length formatted songs by the age of 9! ILL G began rapping with his friend Jamie in General James and his Soldiers At War Music Group in Chicago in 1996 and was one of the youngest ever to join. Shortly after that ILL G’s first recording deal was in 1997 at the very young age of 12 with Gospel label Redeem Hip Hop. At Redeem he was managed by David Felton, and from there his music career took off and expanded to unforeseen heights. 

After growing up and becoming a force to be reckoned with within the Chicago music underground, ILL G later signed a management deal with Elysium Entertainment in 2011 after winning the 200 Man Waka Flocka Competition held at the Harold Washington Cultural Center in Chicago, IL. Later that year he linked up with now well known producer Young Chop and released a radio single produced by Chop named “No More” before Young Chop’s production deal with Warner Bros. that very next year. That created a buzz around the city of Chicago and Atlanta and ultimately culminated in Kanye West hearing and remixing Chief Keef’s classic drill hit “I Don’t Like” due to a studio session ILL G attended at which he mentioned working with Chop.  He then released his second radio single “Throw It Back”, produced by C Lee, on Power 92 Chicago, however the song met opposition from Chicago music insiders who feared being replaced within the industry due to the limited attention that Chicago artists were getting at the time. Years later ILL G then bought out an outstanding management deal he was tied to that freed him up to later found ILL Squad Productions in early 2019. Over the last 15 years ILL G has performed with or worked with artists such as Lil Wayne, Nikki Minaj, Young Jeezy, Trina, Shawnna, Ben One, Cap One, Twista, Tank, Avant, Jon Blu, Waka Flocka, Gucci Mane, Lil’ Scrappy, Crucial Conflict , Soldiers At War, General James, Bodi Deeder, Showtime (GMG), Syleena Johnson, L.E.P Bogus Boyz, Co-Still, Crime Mob, and producers C Lee, AX Beats, Joey “Rock” Marley, Young Chop, Juice, King Julien Drayton, Lil’ Jay (Crime Mob), Paris Bueller, Rio Productions & Hearon Tracks.

ILL G‘s latest project 4th Eye Open was released May 14, 2019 and is streaming and available for purchase on every music platform worldwide. To this day ILL G owns 100% of his masters, and is signed to ILL Squad Productions which he founded in early 2019.
