Chepstow, Wales hailing cheeky punchline-packing rapper Elro gained so much notoriety and praise for his freestyles on youtube that he attracted the attention of The Streets main man Mike Skinner and he was so impressed that he revived his at the time dead and buried record label The Beats and signed the kid.
Fast forward to today and the young rapper who described himself in jest as a “22 year old pretentious white boy who is tragic enough to assign himself a ‘rap name’”, has managed to gain himself co-signs for several industry movers and shakers including Radio 1 taste maker supreme, Zane Lowe.
The rapper recently took a trip to London’s Red Bull Studios with Mike Skinner and Rob Harvey collectively known as The D.O.T. to create an SClusive live session of “Bad News”. Press play and enjoy below.
