I was born and raised in Queens, NY in the 1960s. With classmates as early as the 6th grade like Joseph Simmons AKA Rev. Run, it was my destiny to be involved in the musical aspect of hip-hop as a DJ. I was able to share energy with others who in my age group, experienced the birth of this cultural explosion in many aspects, i.e., block parties, vinyl, Cazals, British Walkers, Kangols, Clarke's, WHBI, WBAU, WBLS, Mr. Magic, The World's Famous Supreme Team Show, etc. While in the Army I began DJing with Mr. Magic, Jodi B. Rubin, Curtis Hotmix Heath and Lady V at the NCO Club and for Magic 95 FM in OK. and CO. under the name DJ iLL BiLL. Simply put, this is a way of life for me and sharing the gift of universal love via music is a blessing. It is my intent to share that beat of love, and rhythm of life, with you. I hope you enjoy.
Peace and Blessings,
DJ Bilal Hayles AKA DJ iLL BiLL
