Zo Illy Earns Straight A’s in “No F’s Given”
You already know Zo Illy ‘loves his DJ’ - but now he has deejays loving him back! With his latest release, he’s getting high grades and leaving the charts ablaze.
“This is a hot song that is going into Bounceout Radio’s rotation.” – The Legendary DJ Erv
(BAXLEY, GEORGIA) August 23rd, 2014 – You can forget about going back to that same ‘old-school.’ You’re in the ‘new-school’ now, and Zo Illy’s your ‘professor of prose.’ You're in a classroom built for bangers. His ‘teaching assistant,’ Fayro Gold will lend a hand as well... In this semester, there’s “No F’s Given” as Zo Illy’s latest drop earns all A’s and tears up the charts, earning him a newfound respect.
Zo Illy - "No F's Given"“My creative goal has always been to create a sound of longevity; one which not easily duplicated,” offers Zo Illy. He’s has been proving that as far back as 2006, when he opened for such artists such as B.o.B., J.T. Money and Cash Camp- all as part of Da Kuntry Boyz duo.
However, now as “Zo Illy,” his focus and success are reaping him a wider scope of focus from DJs and radio program directors - both in the US and Canada. “It’s a thrill and honor to be in radio rotation,” adds Zo Illy. He continues, “Especially to be interviewed and to hear my work on stations such as FOXIE 105-FM.”
Zo Illy’s past successes in 2012 with “I Love My DJ” and “She Tatted” were one thing, but “No F’s Given” takes him to a whole new apex. Released earlier in 2014, “No F’s Given” ascended quickly in the charts, reaching as high as #33 in the Top 50 Independent Charts via Digital Radio Tracker. The track made its debut at #28 at the ZipDJ Canadian Urban Charts in June of 2014.
With an attitude and angst mixed with hard-core spits, “No F’S Given” displays Zo Illy’s uncanny ability to set himself apart from other rap and hip-hop artists. “I feel like I’m in a league of my own, and I don’t mean that in an arrogant way,” explains Zo Illy. He continues, “It’s just that I feel that my material is creatively unique.” While Zo Illy may say he gives no F’s, don’t think for a second he is that way with his musical craft … for Zo Illy, it’s about perfection – whether in production or performance – or at the head of his hip-hop class, with “No F’s Given” – it’s about getting straight A’s.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
