Eleven was born in the Bronx, New York and literally into the world Hip Hop. Like so many 80’s babies, at a very young age he was drawn to the culture. After moving to Harlem in 1995, 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 on the emcee battle circuit as “Ego Crusher” because of his ability to defeat all would-be competitors, basically leaving their ego’s crushed.

Eleven is ready to release his debut album, Respect B4 Fame, with the guidance of Dana Dane’s Def Beat Entertainment multi-media company. Eleven’s debut single, “Talk My Shit”, is presently available for purchase as a digital download. 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 has gone, all I’ll have is respect.”
