New York (Manhattan) born MC Illabit — Rehoboth-resident started recording music as the result of a lifelong love of the culture. “My mom taught me the piano when I was 10, and I taught myself guitar when I was 13,” he tells AAHH. “I’m 21 now; I’m currently signed to Loud House Audio, an independent recording studio in Taunton.”
To date, he (and Loud House) have released two projects. His more recent The Celebration got the ball rolling — with the music video for the song “Magic” cracking 20k views.”
“I was given the name Illabit by an old friend I used to rap with named Trip,” he says of his early come up. “I love that name because toward my goals it’ll always keep me humble.
“My sound is original,” he continues, describing his music. “I was inspired by old legends like Tupac, Nas, Kanye — but, I love new Hip Hop too, like Wiz, Mac Miller [RIP], and A Boogie. I try to mix the two (eras) while incorporating other genres such as indie rock.
“I listen to a lot of different genres, so I like to experiment sometimes with different sounds,” he says.
As he tells us, his goal is to be one of the most motivational artists in the game. “I try to make music with a message … I want my listeners to feel 110% after my tracks.”
Currently, he’s working on a new album called Tear Me Apart, set to drop in 2019. “My plans for the future are to release more albums; I’m going to continue to love what I do while trying to inspire and motivate others to do what they want to do and be the best version of themselves.”
Gotta love that!
