iLLA: adjective. Exceedingly ill. Greater than. More superior.
"His rhymes are ill, but mine are illa!"
Ronvé and Jevares are breaking the mold, taking hip hop to the next level. This fresh, inventive production is taking the American musical to higher ground, merging the musical styles of hip hop, R&B, gospel and more.
iLLA follows Robert, a classically trained dancer, who dreams of becoming a famous rap star. After suffering a humiliating defeat at a leading open mic competition Robert struggles to redeem himself in the eyes of his community. He falls hard for a girl named Stacy but his family's prejudices threaten to tear them apart. Can Robert overcome his fears and troubled home life to achieve his Hip Hop dreams? It's a journey of Swagger, Struggle and Self-love that we all must travel. Do you have what it takes to be iLLA?
