ELEVEN EGO CRUSHER
Eleven was born in the Bronx, New York and literally into the world Hip Hop. At a very young age, After moving to Harlem and enduring a daunting childhood that left him fending for his daily survival, Eleven turned to hustling mix tapes on the streets of New York City to sustain his existence. While hustling mix tapes Eleven was inspired to create his own music. Eleven derived his name from the first letter of his government name which is the 11th letter of the alphabet. He is also known in the MC battle circuit as the Ego Crusher, because of his ability to defeat all would-be competition, basically leaving their egos crushed.
After making his rounds through the mix-tapes circuit as a host, producer or featured artist with the likes of Whoo Kid, Babs, Ron G, Greg Street, Nipsey Hussle, & Dj Whiteowl to name a few, Eleven is ready to release his debut album Respect b4 Fame, under the guidance of Dana Dane’s Def Beat Entertainment multi-media company. When asked how he came up with the title for his CD, Respect B4 Fame, Eleven says, “I have learned to stay grounded because I understand that once the fame is gone, all I’ll have is my respect.”
