Illogik is a local Toronto area producer MC, fusing a radical political message with hot beats and rhymes.  Inspired to bring the message of revolution to the people in the form of hip hop, Illogik doesn't pull any punches in his rhymes.  He'll tell you exactly how he see's the world, and won't hesitate to tell you his opinion on a variety of subjects, from the lies and manipulations of the War on Terror and the War on Drugs, to personal life lessons that have helped him grow.  Illogik's debut album "The Resistance" is his manifesto for the future, helping to expose the lies of the NWO over top of gritty beats and rhymes.

The Whoremoans Toronto’s own riot grrl punk band.
