Spotlight On REVOLT: Elujay ft. YMTK "Flagrant"
Get to know the upstart and check out his video in rotation on REVOLT.
Elujay is a multi-talented rapper and producer from Oakland, California. The 20-year-old emcee began creating music when he was 14, after a friend of his uploaded a beat-making program to his laptop. Inspired by D’Angelo, Musiq Soulchild, and Kendrick Lamar, Elujay started producing instrumentals and creating raps that represented his love for both soul and hip-hop. Elujay has been on a mission ever since to create “honest, soulful music” that expresses his feelings and experiences growing up in a changing Oakland.
Elujay’s style is refreshingly unique, due to his organic ability to take control of his entire creative process, including making his own instrumentals. Although Elujay has seen early recognition with his relatable lyrics and blend of hip-hop, house, and soul music (representative in his electrifying “Jentrify” debut), the Bay Area–wordsmith is determined to hone in on his style with the goal of reaching fans all over the world.
