Willie Fisher Jr. (born December 15, 1992)(age 26), better known by his stage name Ill Will, is an Hip Hop artist from Grifton, North Carolina. Will released his first indie mixtape Dream Chaser Vol. 1 in 2011(Recorded in his buddy's closet down the street from him) making his commitment to music. This is when he realized that anything is possible and no way of giving up on his dreams. While working on his second edition to his Dream Chaser Series (recorded in his built studio in his barn), he came across an opportunity which led him to sign with independent record label, Against The Grain Records, based in Greenville North Carolina in 2012. That same year he released his Dream Chaser Vol. 2 second project and first debut mixtape for the label, On My Grind.
In 2013 he gathered his courage and traveled to Harlem, New York to audition for Apollo's Amateur night. Waiting in a long line for hours and crowded waiting rooms he succeeded to auditions, but wasn't what the judges were looking for at the time. Will traveled back to Grifton, NC with his head held high with an accomplishment of making it there and for what he loved. In 2014, Will released The Field Of Dreams mixtape, organized by a buddy of his, to give back to his people.
Radio spins, promotions, and performances have came his way and Ill Will hasn't turned any of them down. He has opened up for various artists while searching for his sound and niche. ILL Will went on a 4-City tour in 2014 promoting his Single "Illest On The Rise", around the Eastern NC. Following that, Will attended a live radio cypher on his local radio station, 101.9 Kiss-FM in New Bern, NC, utilizing his witty, lyrical, and positive lines, making a statement which impacted a lot for him from that moment. On September 27, 2014 ILL Will attended a youth revival in Jacksonville, NC where he performed with christian rappers for the first time. While driving from the event Will accepted Jesus into his life.
January 28, 2015, Ill Will left Against The Grain Record label. Self-motivated to strive harder for what he wanted. December 2015, Ill Will traveled with Christan Rapper Chuuch on a promo tour to Dover, Delaware & Philadelpha, Pennsylvania promoting his soon to release project "Sin Of The Pen". On December 15, 2015 Ill Will released his Sin Of The Pen project.
