EL-P Biography & News
Meet the man who has been a driving force in the alternative hop hop scene for well over a decade. Jaime Meline, known by his stage name El-P, is a man of many musical talents. Not only is he a recording artist, but has been a producer for many noted underground rappers. He is also CEO of his own record label, and just this past year formed the duo Run the Jewels with Killer Mike.
Did you get tired just reading that? Imagine how many day-to-day projects El-P actually has his hands in, and it's enough to make even the most driven person want to lay down and take a nap. The funny thing is, he carried a bad rap for being expelled from multiple schools due to problems with authority, but it proved to be the catalyst to his music career. When he was just 18 years old, he'd already formed Company Flow with Mr. Len, and the same year they produced their first single, "Juvenile Techninques."
Though Company Flow later dissolved, El-P already had his label up and running. Not only that, it quickly rose to prominence behind several critically acclaimed albums. And if he didn't have enough on his plate, it was 2001 when El-P made a run at a solo career kicked off with the debut album "Fantastic Damage." Everything he's put out since then has received generally favorable, it not outright glowing reviews.
Run the Jewels is, of course, El-P's newest project. Along with Killer Mike, the duo released their self-titled first album titled "Run the Jewels" in 2013 as a free digital download.
