I started out as an artist before I was producing. Once I got into making beats I would only write rhymes once in a while. After recording a warm up freestyle, I hit up Omen asking if he wanted to do a song. He was on a roll at the time, sending me tons of music and I wanted to latch onto his energy, he was being real productive. He sent me the sample and I did the beat pretty quickly – sent it as a “rough draft” but he really loved it. He was in Chicago and I was in New York, so we both wrote our verses without knowing what the other was writing about. Somehow it came together though. I knew Omen was gonna bring it so I couldn’t slack. The reactions I got were great so it ended up being the first step to my rededication to rapping. I’m currently working on a mixtape as an Artist and I definitely have Omen to thank for giving me the shot to kind of rediscover myself as an MC.

The most rewarding part about working with Omen was that he put confidence in me. As someone who is known primarily as a producer, it’s hard to break that stigma and gain respect as an artist. He is very picky with who he works with, so him allowing me the opportunity to not just produce a track for him but appear as a featured artist as well meant a lot. -Elite

The Groundwork (Mixtape)

Author: Elite /

My goal with this project is to connect all the work I have done up until this point, so that those who are unfamiliar can get acquainted with my sound. For those of you who are familiar, I think you will really enjoy these Instrumentals. I didn't just mute the vocals, in some cases i completely remixed and rearranged the beats to give the listener a more dynamic experience. Playground is one of my favorites, me and Cole recorded that during the early stages of "The Warm Up" but it didn't fit in with the final track listing. It's a great song though, and I'm happy to finally let you all hear it! Holy Omen was featured on Omen's "Delayed" mixtape sampler, but it's my first real appearance on the mic, so I wanted to share it on this project as well. Expect a lot more of this in the future, and on my next mixtape (currently in progress) entitled "Elite That's Me". I also decided to finally release The Original Version of Shootouts. Now you can hear for your self how I removed the sample and completely reworked the beat! Enjoy!
EDIT:
Yesterday I forgot to include BLAQOUT DESIGN (cover design), BY ANY MEANS (art direction) and REDIFINE BOUTIQUE (back cover illustration)
They all showed mad love please check them out, extreme talent all 3!!!

Dj Tay James & J. Tinsley Present "American Dreamin' : A History Lesson on J. Cole"

Author: Unknown /




Here's a tape put together by Dj Tay James and J. Tinsley for Collegeradiomusic.com with a small assist by yours truly which gives you a blend of old and some new J. Cole music to bring people up to speed. Personally I love this mixtape takes me back to songs i don't get to listen to as often and also reminds me how long and how much work has been put in by Cole to get to where is now. Think of this as the pre game stretch before actually hitting the lay up line and getting your warm up on for the game, you get the point. With the Warm Up coming June 15th this should be a good listen to get people ready. Enjoy


I know i'm late but obviously this blog has been neglected by all of us for a bit but here's something
from "The Warm Up" for your listening pleasures.
