Video & Photography by Alexandria Aikens
Since childhood, emcee E Legal has been exposed to live and classic music. It started with his father- a blues guitar player who he saw play live when he was seven. His earliest memories of music was the Beetles and the likes of John Lennon all the way to Tupac has inspired his music style and lyrical content.
This year, he will be touring east by southeast and he's stoked for the experience. "Going on tour is a dream come true. If you were to ask me what could I do with my life in general, I would go on tour, nonstop, for the rest of my life." Sitting on four new singles, you can expect to hear new sounds this March 2016.

Since 2012, Chicago has become a mecca for some of the most influential artists in the industry. Artists such as Chance the Rapper, Kanye West, and Noname have all positioned themselves as leaders by putting their own take on signature Chicago sounds.
Recently, I caught up with Evie in between her set where she gave me the scoop on how she got into Djing and where she wants to see her newest project, Babes Only, grow to. Like anyone wanting to dive into a creative lane, she started a blog and eventually, began learning how to DJ firsthand from Smoko Ono, another prominent Chicago producer.
