Illa is an MC from Clendon, Auckland.

A popular, well respected and skilled MC, it’s safe to say Illa masters it all, be it on social media or the entertainment buzz. Fresh off the back of the prestigious 64 Bars Series run by NZ legend David Dallas in which artists such as INF, Lukan Rai$ey and Dirty have also performed it seems he doesn’t have to prove anything to anybody.

Able to kill it live, recorded or any which way you ask he’s definitely not one to underestimate.
