Interview: El FIlo

Artist Name: El FIlo

Tell us something about you that fans should know:

My purpose in life is to educate, encourage, and empower anyone that is open to hearing my music and the messages of wisdom. I have chosen the path of enlightenment which has influenced my latest tracks and awakened a new energy to make more. Since then my music and business investments have progressed astronomically (no pun intended) and it is due to my faith in God and fulfilling my purpose through my music, dance, and business.

Where are you from and what’s the music scene like there?

I'm from the west side of Chicago where trap and drill music bumps on everyone's car. I grew up in the late 90s and 2k so my favorite artists were Common, Twista, Kanye West, and DO or DIE.

How have your life experiences influenced your music?

Growing up in the late 90s and 2k, I appreciated artists like Nas, and Tupac, along with many other conscious rappers, but I grew as an artist during my 20s living in Cancun Mexico. Although there were many great times, there were also extremely difficult ones. In my many dark times as a young adult, I was guided by the power of God and have become stronger, wiser, and humble to be a servant of God through serving others through music. I realized my purpose when I was on the street without any money, or place to go except rapping on buses for change.

Who would you most like to collaborate with?
