The MC
Sound Production
Production on a high level of sound till Ice takes over the speakers. 20 years Mixing, Mastering, Recording, Performing, and Editing for the General public's pleasure. Eye's bleed with desire and fear of a full length Hip-Hop Masterpiece comes out of the piles of kits. What can be felt cannot be seen without a .wav pad because we are never afraid of that next moment. In yourself is where Hip-Hop lives. Live for yourself first.

Born in 1980 Ill Smith came into this world as Ian. With a violent and inquisitive childhood, Ian became really interested in a new Music called Hip-Hop.

Substituting fire for Pimpin' and taking the name E. Pimpin'(Producer/MC) the beginning of E.w.w. in the street was born, to be truthful Ill doesn't give a damn what you call him. He just wants to make the best music.
