The Boy Illinois has been progressing over the years. On a recent conversation on Scoop B Radio Overtime, The Boy Illinois and I talked about how cool it was to open up concerts for fellow Chicago lyricist, Lupe Fiasco. “It was amazing,” The Boy Illinois told me about opening for Lupe Fiasco on Scoop B Radio.

“First of all, that’s one of my favorite artists. It was dope because he is one of my favorite artists and it was like: ‘damn I’m about to open up the whole tour for this guy.’ And you just soak up game. Like the first show in Atlanta, I just sat and watched his whole set up and sound check like I was just amazed. I had never been at a level of this magnitude. So I’m trying to learn everything that I can but then after like the 10th show it was like: ‘I don’t even want to see your show no more because it’s the same shit every night.’ But after a while you kind of get the hang of it and I’m a quick learner and I pick up things quick.”
