The Boy Illinois Is “Dancing Like Diddy” in New Video
The Boy Illinois releases the video for his popular banger, "Dancing Like Diddy."
The Chicago rapper puts a jovial spin on the visual for the uptempo dance track, which is produced by Isaac James Fresh. The Boy Ill bends corners in the back of a El Camino, which has a booming sound system and a bunch of colorful balls bouncing around. What a sight this must have been rumbling down the Chi-town streets.
As the visual cruises on, Ill continues to bust moves like Sean "Puffy" Combs, with his homeboys joining in on the fun during some scenes of the Jay Mavas-directed treatment.
He even takes a scene from The Notorious B.I.G's "Mo Money, Mo Problems" video, where Puff and Ma$e diddy bop in front of a black and white background. "Tell my mama that I did it/Ay I'm with it/Running through the city I be dancing, I be dancing, I be dancing like Diddy," he raps on the chorus.
Ill is definitely looking to make 2017 his year. In 2013, he put out the buzz-worthy project, Jean Baptiste, The Yer Tape, and followed that up with his most recent offering, DuSable, which dropped in 2015.
He is currently prepping the release of his latest EP, Road Winds. Earlier this year, he dropped a remix to Migos' "T-Shirt" with "On the Road."
