How one starts is rarely how one finishes which describes my brother Bekoe’s journey from Hip-Hop artist to Entrepreneur. I originally met Bekoe through social media, he was an artist and I work for a website/internet radio station called Only4TheReal. Shortly after I started building with him through email and seeing how dedicated he was about his music I reached out to him about doing a radio interview in April of 2014.
Fast forward two solid projects and a top 100 record ”Aw Yeah” to February of 2016 the birth of iLLANOiZE.co and one of thee premier website in Chicago which I was later asked to contribute to. After getting the website up and running Bekoe had another idea that would address one of the biggest roadblocks in Chicago. This idea led to the creation of iLLANOiZE Radio where the artist actually get paid for their radio spins (but only if you're on top of your business). Now the special thing about iLLANOiZE as a brand is yes it's a business but our platform is used to educate both artists, business owners and those that may need an extra push to pursue their own dreams.
Today is a cumulation of all these steps created to help others achieve something special. So assist me in thanking my homie my brother and a true friend on the next leg of his new journey as the new midday host on Vocalo 91.1 FM starting in January.
