Born February 14th, 1992 in Milwaukee, WI stands the young artist ELI. Listening to his father and uncle making music as a child opened him to the world of Hip Hop. He wrote his first verse at the age of 12, and freestyled with his cousins until he was 16. At 15 he started producing, and worked on his skills and style of rhyme with a high school friend that went by the artist name Narkotik for a couple of years. Narkotik left due to personal problems, and ELI traveled the road of development alone. After ELI graduated, he released The Book of ELI Mixtape, and in 2011 realeased another; Green Hair and Spraypaint Mixtape. ELI is noted for his twists of metaphors and versatility.
His first album is called HEMOMUSIC, which broken down is, blood music. "This album is real thoughts, real feelings and real experiences" says ELI. " I shed my blood, sweat and tears into this 1st album, I wrote everything, produced everything, this is my music and my blood, take it. This project went through several changes due to my main artist dropping out but reconstructed into a dark, beautiful, hungry, energetic monster from the Mid-west."
