The eyes of the world are currently fixed on Compton, California. Straight Outta Compton, the movie based on N.W.A’s rise and fall is smashing box office records and Kendrick Lamar’s unbelievable comeback album To Pimp A Butterfly is probably going to win multiple Grammy’s. It would be easy to forgive those who are new to the genre that all the best hip-hop comes from the left coast.
Every Life Has An Ending or ELHAE for short (pronounced LA) is ready to change that perception. Coming from Atlanta, a city with its own rich musical heritage the young rapper has been consistently dropping tracks that have set the blogs buzzing.
ELHAE dropped the Aura EP on Soundcloud earlier this year to rave reviews. “Halfway Love” being a real stand out track. Comparing his style to Drake is perhaps a little bit obvious, but the relaxed beats and classic instrumentation matched with his impressive rhyming skills make it a valid one.
This guy is definitely an artist to watch in 2015 and beyond.
ELHAE will be performing at Kensington Roof Gardens, London 14 Nov. Tickets are available HERE
