I'm honored to be a friend of Andrew Morrison. -Terrance Guardipee

Mr. Morrison Directs and unleashes his music video: Leo Season (Freestyle 2020) , featuring ILLY WONKA on Thanksgiving, 11-26-20


ILLY WONKA

Artist/Writer/Producer born & raised in Seattle, Washington. Over the years he has released some independent work of his own. Known for his positive spin on songs and subjects with multiple styles and an innovative approach to his songs. Marked as an established lyricist with a strong passion for music as a whole, he creates music to help you grow, motivate you, & enlighten the listener. He’s not tryna be “cool” or “down;”as he could care less what you think. And that shows in his work. If you’re ready for a change and something fresh, while speaking to your spirit, this is it.

This song/video is a collaborative effort from ZIPLOK & ILLY WONKA. A trip to good ol San Diego, California is where all the creation took place.Except the Music/beat was produced in Seattle, WA by ILLY on the 1st day of LEO season (July 23rd). Inspired by the summertime and the good weather, & birthday of his Son on that actual day. The verses were freestyles basically; written very fast. Both verses were amazingly written in about 25 minutes. The song touches on the struggles of parenting, the strength of family, financial literacy & wisdom for life, speaking to & schooling the youth. Challenging preconceived indoctrinations that have caused hardships and replace it with thoughts of healing and progression from the dark side. Without a care in the world of what opposition may think. Going hard ever so smoothly on this one. Love you. More from ILLY WONKA & ZIPLOK in 2021.
