2 iLL Clothing was founded 2007 in Los Angeles, CA by Gibran Rodriguez. The name 2 iLL was inspired by Wu-Tang Clan's Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, and Cappadonna's album 'Ironman'. 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 he chose to sell the infamous White Pro-Club Tall Tees. Business at that time was quite difficult because of big warehouse competitors, lack of funds, and small inventory. One day, one of the homies who was a graffiti artists gave him the idea to print on the shirts that were not moving at the time. Gibran thought,"How would that be possible for me to do?"
His friend replied,"Something called Screen Printing?" They decided to Google '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 from a company named Ranar.
Fast forward nine years, we are still iLL.
