Born and raised in Charlotte North Carolina, Elevator Jay has been writing and producing his own music since 2005. His goal is to bring back the original sound of Southern Rap with a new twist, staying true to those influences that pioneered the sound, and also adding lyrical content that is key to this form of expression. During Elevator’s college years, he began to develop ideas that could expose his musical talents on many platforms and for a multitude of fans. Since 2005, Elevator has worked with various artists and producers compiling a diverse catalogue of music and learning his craft along the way. Locally, Elevator is becoming a crowd favorite at showcases, with a history of opening for headliners including Devin the Dude, Yelawolf, Ritz, Big K.R.I.T., Slim Thug, Paul Wall, Bubba Sparxxx, Machine Gun Kelly and Tech N9ne. There will be more to look forward to in the future coming from Elevator Jay so be on the lookout.
