However, thankfully after years of recovery he learned how to walk again. It wasn’t until high school that He took an interest in Hip Hop and After years of perfecting his craft iNTeLL earned his status as a known affiliate of the Wu-Tang dynasty. He has been blazing a trail on the underground hiphop scene since the release of his first project Hip Hop Lives in 2011. He cultivated the attention of the masses the following year, with the release of Darkskin Samurai/ Wu-Tang Shogun, which was downloaded over various blog & music sites. He’s written & recorded hundreds of songs over the past eight years but recently iNTeLL was featured on Method Man’s latest Album The Meth Lab and his verse definitely stacks up there with the veterans. Method man reciprocated the collaboration by joining iNTeLL on a track for his latest album [RAP IS ART] which was released 5/2/2016. This young Lord has put out a handful of Mixtape’s & EP’s, some with Wu-Tang flavor and some with his own style. However, one thing remains clear this artist is not to be slept on.
