Born & raised in Staten Island, New York

the eldest son of U-God, from the Wu-Tang Clan, had an upbringing

that was far from normal. On March 13th of '94, while being escorted to a birthday party, a young Dontae Hawkins was shot through the abdomen. The bullet came from a nearby crossfire shooting. After several operations & years of physical therapy, Dontae learned how to walk again, recovering from most of his injuries.

He first picked up the pen during his high school years and thus iNTeLL was born.

After graduating from film school 

he decided to pursue music alongside filmmaking.

With nothing but time to perfect his crafts

he continues to create dope art  

that will intellectually stimulate your mind.

Since Embarking Upon his Artistic Journey

for artists in the U.S. & abroad.
