Affable Canadian rapper Illvibe (or iLLvibe) has been active as an independent recording artist, eager collaborator, and frequent touring performer since the late 2000s. Born Anthony Craparotta, he calls Barrie, Ontario his hometown but is based in Toronto, where built his early following. Early on, in 2010, he was nominated for a TIMA (Toronto Independent Music Award) in the category of Best Rap. After a series of eclectic recording projects, performing headlining sets, and opening for several high-profile artists, Craparotta gained some attention far outside the hip-hop community when he competed on CBC's Canada's Smartest Person and reached the season finale. Among the most notable releases in the Illvibe discography are Eclectic Avenue (credited to Robots Wearing Sunglasses, 2013), Proof of Life (2014), Firebreather (2016), We Are the Aliens (a collaboration with Myer Clarity, issued in 2017), and The Neo-Blues (also 2017). ~ Andy Kellman
