Jermaine “Jilla-Kush” Wynn was born in a small town on the outskirts of Chicago to a musical family. Inspired by his late Grandmother, pianist, Lily Mae Wynn, Jilla-Kush developed a strong love for music at an early age. Growing up, Jilla-Kush was known for playing the drums and singing in the church choir. At the tender age of 12 years old, Jilla-Kush was first introduced and fell in love with hip hop. After writing and performing his first song, Jilla-Kush knew he was a force to be reckoned with.  Jilla-Kush began to take the local hip hop circuit by storm by rocking the stage at various house parties and talent shows. The response he received from his performances motivated the rapper to further develop and hone his craft. Although Jilla-Kush has had to overcome many obstacles, he has never let his struggles overcome him.  Jilla-Kush continues to press forward using music as his outlet and a way to connect with the world.

IAA:  What is your music background?

JILLA KUSH:  I was raised in a church. I sang in the choir and even played the drums. Growing up I hung around my uncle and a few older cousins while they recorded with other local artists. Influenced by them, I starting writing my own raps. My cousin heard it and bragged to all his friends. Next thing you know I was 14 years old rocking house parties.

IAA:  What inspired you to pursue music?

JILLA KUSH:  The responses that I receive while I displayed my talents play a big part in my motivation for music. I was always told to be  who I wanted to be and do what I want to do in life.  I was told to stay true to it, no matter what. Ever since spitting my first rap, I seemed to shock my listeners.

IAA:  What are your songs about?

JILLA KUSH:  My songs are mainly about me. I write about my past, present, future, and different situations I face periodically.

IAA:  Do you write your own music?

JILLA KUSH:  Yes I write my own music and make my own beats. I’ll freak any beat that’s given to me..

IAA:  Who are your musical influences?

JILLA KUSH:  My Grandmother was my biggest influence.  She didn’t care what she looked like when she banged on her piano. She always gave a show. She is probably smiling down on me now talking bout little ugly boy.. .lol. I have been influenced by Whiz Khalifa, Dr. Dre., Snoop,  UGK, MJG & 8Ball, Outkast, Crucial Conflict, Psyco-Drama, Twista, Kanye West, Trinadad James, Slick-Rick, The Temptations, just to name a few.

IAA:  How would you describe your music to people?

JILLA KUSH:  My music is spine chilling, entertaining, and catchy. My music gives my audience something new to jam out to how ever you may feel like jamming out.

IAA:  What makes you stand out from other artist?

JILLA KUSH:  My lyrics make me stand out from other artists. They keep me on the other side of the fence.

IAA:  What are some upcoming projects, you are currently working on?

JILLA KUSH:  I am currently working on a few different projects that includes other artist as well as myself. I am working on my own personal project called “LIKE ME NOW”. It is as the title reads.   Another project that I am working on is called the “S.C.E. Mix-tape.”  This project was created to show the different amounts of talents that come in my booth to record. My goal was to give artist a chance to have or be featured on a beat that they can call their own.

IAA:  What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?

JILLA KUSH:  My career goals are to become stable in the music industry. I want to run a legit business, count a lot of cash, and be able to give my nieces and nephews a easier life than I had. 10 years from now I see myself receiving a Grammy along with all the rest of your favorite artists.

IAA:  How can your fans access your music and contact you?
