CREATIVE SPOTLIGHT: BILLY ZAMMIT
Without any further ado we’d like to introduce you to a young man from Brisbane that’s well and truly grabbed our attention. 21 year old rapper/producer/jack of all trades, Nerve, is leading the charge of the next wave of Australian artists. We caught up with him and picked his brain.
CREATIVE SPOTLIGHT: EDDIE HUANG
Being purveyors of all creative avenues, we thought it only was fitting to shine some 'well deserved' light on Sydney's newest young gun behind the lens, Billy Zammit. We sat down with Billy and picked his brain about what's been happening of late.
MIXTAPE: BBQMIX VOL.2
This week we pay homage to the ever talented social commentator Eddie Huang. Huang is an acclaimed writer, restaurant owner and TV host on his own culture documentary Huang's World on VICELAND. However, it's the man's passion for food and it's influence across culture that we truly admire.

CAPSULE COLLECTION: MAGPIES
illeqwip® Presents: BBQRAP EPISODE 2,
Saturday the 23rd of December 2017.
Wow. Looking back now, some 3 weeks on from when EP2 took place it all seems a little surreal. We had aspirations on how the 2nd instalment would go. Growing, improving and expanding from the foundations laid in Episode 1.
ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: PROLIFIK THE GIFTED
Our new magpie collection is now live via the webstore.
BRAND FEATURE: ONLY NYC
This week we have chosen to hone in directly on our day one homie, Prolifik The Gifted. We were lucky enough to grab a minute of P's valuable time and grab an interview. We hope this gives you some insight and shines some light on 2234's Maestro of the Boom and the Bap.
BBQRAP: EPISODE 2 TICKETS
Being avid enthusiasts of streetwear culture, it was an easy decision as to who our first brand plug would go to. Created in amongst New York Cities, Lower Eastside by two art school dropouts, ONLY NY have been the benchmark ahead of the competition for many years.
BBQRAP: EPISODE 1 RECAP
BBQRAP is back with another live and very intimate backyard hip-hop event & cookout. 23rd of December with only 50 tickets are available to the general public.
ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: PHIFE DAWG TRIBUTE
BBQRAP is a live, and very intimate backyard gig that displays the depth and diversity of the local hip-hop scene here in Sydney, Australia.
Meshed with amazing food, created just for the event from a leading local chef, and documented in high-quality video and audio to be shared with the masses.
CAPSULE COLLECTION: DIY OR DIE
We, the team here at illeqwip, thought it was time to reflect on the influence and legacy left from this tiny yet larger than life human. His impact and touch on culture is undisputed. His effect, created with Q-tip, Ali Shaheed, Jarobi and the Native Tongue members on rap music and its everlasting culture is one that will go down in history forever.
