Joshua “MADD ILLZ” Carrasco began his battle career in the late 90′s. After joining the United States Marine Corps in 2002, Illz traveled all over the country performing, battling and building a network for what would become the largest grass roots movement in Hip Hop since the culture began. As the first organized battle company, Illz was able to work with the Joseph Beasley foundation and shared his thoughts at the United Nations Headquarters “Music is a Natural Resource Project” in 2011. After downsizing in 2011, Madd Illz spent a year developing a better foundation to ensure the company’s survival in a fast growing market. Returning in 2013 with a new plan, staff, website and development deal through Maker studios, Illz started back on the track to creating history once more.
