Hello!

I’m Gibran.

I’m writing this story about how I founded
this clothing brand.

Dedicated to everyone that helped make
2iLL into what
it has been and will become.

Supporters,
any that have bought
or even
have came up on
a shirt
or sticker,
and showed love.

I’m thankful.

I may not go into so much detail
to every chapter,
but you will get the idea.

Tell Your Story.

In 2007.
an opportunity arose
to start a business
to either sell blank t-shirts
or raspados (shaved ice).

Maybe selling raspados would’ve been
an easier concept, but
selling the infamous
White Pro-Club Tall Tees
was chosen..

They were real popular
at the time.

Business at that time was quite difficult
because of big warehouse competitors,
lack of funds, and small inventory.

  One day, one of the homies


2ill_on_weed
came by with the idea to print on the shirts!


“How would that be possible?”
His friend replied,
“Something called Screen Printing?”

They decided to Google ‘how to screen print’.

how_to_screen_print
YouTube had no content teaching
‘how to screen print’.
Read all about screen printing/ silk screening
but it didn’t make any sense!

A couple months later Gibran
gathered some money to buy
a one station four color
manual screen print press, flash dryer,
and exposure unit.

 

Fast forward many levels
and nine years later,
we are still iLL.

Full Story Coming Soon!

Keep it 2 iLL.

Peace!

The name 2 iLL was inspired by Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, and Cappadonna’s album ‘Ironman’.

“..Can’t get a nigga like Don dime a dozen
Even if I’m smoked out I can’t be scoped out
I’m Two iLL, I represent Park Hill
See my face on the twenty dollar bill
Cash it in, and get ten dollars back
the fat LP with Cappachino on the wax..”
– Cappadonna on “Winter Warz”

Express Yourself

“The most important kind of freedom
is to be what you really are.

You trade in your reality for a role.
You trade in your sense for an act.
You give up your ability to feel,
and in exchange, put on a mask.

There can’t be any large-scale revolution
until there’s a personal revolution,

on an individual level.


It’s got to happen inside first.”

               -Jim Morrison
