July 22, 2015 11:29 PM PDT(1998) The Birth of ILL Sphere ILL Sphere was transforming, bringing in a new member as well as other people would emerge to help support the vision: Lamer Lee (Spoken) who managed R&B groups previously and Tremayne Robertson (Intellect) who was on Death Row Street Team alongside his deceased brother in law Patrick Franklin, would serve as managers; Byron Short (B Rone) and Jermaine Cochran (Jay) would serve as quality control. The managers suggested that the name should be changed to something other than Low End because it was boring; the name that emerged was ILL Sphere. The concept of ILL Sphere was the planet earth with the group and crew members coexisting and sharing space while bring their own things to the table. As far as the group was concerned Verbal was the flashy young rhymer with a smooth flow that could attract the ladies; Lush was the lyrical b boy that liked to drink and party and set the tone for battling; DJ Butta was the silent musical visionary and the backbone of the group. The group practiced and turned freestyle sessions into song writing sessions. Verbal proved to be a one take Charlie with his delivery and Lush supplied the same energy as before but with more focus. After months of writing and rehearsing, with the guidance of Silhouette the group was ready to go into the studio to start recording. 01. Remember (Do You) – Produced by DJ Butta, Lyrics: Verbal and Lush; Recorded at Super Sound Studios, Chicago, IL. Engineered by Vince & Silhouette (1998). First song of the ILL Sphere era diversified the sound with dusty samples, dope hook sung by Verbal and tight lyrics by both emcees, great battle record. This song was played on Underground Radio Station WHPK 02. Enta Da Dragon – Produced by DJ Butta, Lyrics: Lush and Verbal; Recorded at Super Sound Studios, Chicago, IL. Engineered by Vince & Silhouette (1998). This track was aimed for play at a local hip hop spot that was popular in Chicago at the time, The Double Door. The jazzy groove was inspired once again by A.T.C.Q but the flows were a bit brasher. 03. Summertime ft. (Jenay) – Produced by DJ Butta, Lyrics: Verbal & Jenay; Recorded at Super Sound Studios, Chicago IL. Engineered by Vince & Silhouette (1998). Summertime was the first and only song that was featured several times on WGCI Home Jams. Managers Intellect and Spoken decided that the group should have a radio song and DJ Butta produced a tried and true radio beat, Verbal stepped into the spotlight to provide the voice for the group. Jenay, being managed by local radio personality Sam Sylk, was a find from Intellect as he managed her at one point. Besides being great eye candy she was a great young lady who loved music and had a powerful voice. The song would be the longest to record in the studio and most popular. 04. Streetlife – Produced by DJ Butta, Lyrics: Lush & Verbal; Recorded at Super Sound Studios, Chicago, IL. Engineered by Vince & Silhouette (1998) Chicago has long had an issue with violence and particularly in the Black Community; this song was made to reflect the conditions of inner City Chicago without glorifying it for the masses. This song was played on the underground radio Station WHPK. Ill Sphere - (1996 - 1997) The Beginning
July 09, 2015 07:18 PM PDTIn the beginning there was a crew of kids in the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago (59th to 60th Ashland to Racine). While most were in the streets at the time dealing with gangs or drug selling these kids were trying to find their way bonding with personalities, sports, music and education (1989). Each member was a leader in their own right and as the passion for music grew so did the interest to record. The crew started with Lamont Bufford (DJ Butta), Derrick Wyckoff (D Party), James Taylor (Blaza), and Frank Johnson (Tsar X – Thou Seeking A Real - Existence). (1987 – 1991) The crew played sports and then would hang out at DJ Butta’s house (60th Elizabeth) where his mom had hundreds of records and old school turntables. Tsar X, who had started rapping and writing rhymes since 5th grade bought a used mixer and turned it over to DJ Butta dubbing him the backbone of the crew. Countless hours of pause tape mixes turned into recording songs in DJ Butta’s home while his mom was at work and brothers put to sleep (usually 6 PM, damn that was cruel). The Pause tape beats sparked the urge to let others hear what was going on and word spread in the neighborhood. D Party, Blaza and Tsar X wrote rhymes and Butta made the beats. Diss tracks were made, laughs were shared and bonds were formed. This was a short lived hobby for members D Party and Blaza; however, Dj Butta and Tsar X continued to record pause tape songs. The recoding would start to wane and eventually stop once Tsar X joined the military. (1994) After the military stint Tsar X returned home to the crew now a bit older and with tons of time on their hands the crew finally had a name and longtime friends had come into the fold: Rod Morrow (Big Psue), Merica Grant (MG), Erick Wallace (Big E) and Hank Stevenson (Sticky). DJ Butta’s family moved to 60th and Loomis and everything accelerated. The passion to record grew stronger and two things made that passion come to fruition: a chance meeting that Tsar X had with local Emcee Devo D (Dion butler) which led to a meeting with Dan Avinger (Silhouette) and longtime friend Ken Jennings (31) fronting the duo money to buy equipment so that they could make their own beats. (1995) Devo D was in the process of making recording a solo project and solicited beats from his for former Sub Cult Riddim crew member Silhouette, Tsar X tagging along was able to meet the producer and instantly bonded after beats were played and freestyles were spit. DJ Butta meet Silhouette, they instantly clicked with the music and technical nuances of recording and DJing. 01. Sucka Nigga 02. Beats Vs. Rhymes 03. Feel That Freestyle 04. Like This 05. Go Rapper
