Newly signed to Priority Records, The Boy Illinois drops his first debut single Dancing Like Diddy. Produced by Issac James, Illi takes his fans back to the 90's tributing to fun times where music mogul "Diddy" was known for dancing in the videos. The Boy Illinois shouts out DLow representing Chi-town style dance and spits on the high energy track staking his claim to the city. With his upcoming video dropping late June, the single is just a snapshot into what is setting him apart in the industry, clever and catchy hooks with lyrical finesse.
The Boy Illinois comes full blazing with a colorful 90’s feel visual fused with a Chicago edge. The concept of Dancing Like Diddy was inspired by The Boy Illinois mentor & Big Bro Lupe Fiasco after a bar from another single “Ruling Class.” The video kicks off with “Illi” riding through the city spreading love and bending blocks. From the clear sky to the 1-2 step, Dancing Like Diddy video paints a picture of fun, positivity and great music. Throughout the visual, the colors contrast creating vivid engagement from recreating “Mo Money, Mo Problems,” video, Illi white shoes and colorful balls rocking to the bass. Stating his claim from the jump, “Dancing Like Diddy” is set to reach the masses.
