Promising Houston-native singer-rapper Eliot Ness dropped last March 17, his recent bomb album, I’m Me Pt 1. This work is a collection of his intricately combined collaborations from artists Luenell, Devin The Dude, Yung Redd, Tony Mack, and producer Bruce Bang. It also showcases some of Eliot’s previous single releases, namely, “Small Time GMix” featuring Scarface, Willie D, Daz Dillinger Produced by Worm, and “Fast Lane” featuring Hogg Booma and produced by Bruce Bang.
Sir Eliot Ness Baldwin, founder of the Hustlaz On Tha Block Ent and Hustlaz On Tha Block LLC. goes by the screen name, Eliot Ness. He is a self-made recording artist, producer, and entrepreneur who hails from a city most famous for its ‘chopped and screwed approach’ to hip hop music. Despite this prevailing reputation, Eliot has effectively and skillfully combined the styles of his hometown with the stories, struggles, and triumphs he has experienced. Eliot Ness is not new to music and the industry. He is the younger brother to the Dogg Pound’s Own the Lady of Rage, one of the most skillful women emcee rap has ever known. Growing up, Eliot watched his older sister dominate as a female artist. This exposure inspired him to maintain a good work ethic and strive through diversity as he turns his dreams to reality. Then he found himself in the same field of making music.
Having created numerous mixtapes under his belt, Eliot had the privilege of working with some of the industry’s heavyweights, namely Paul Wall, Willie D, Daz Dillinger, Scarface, Devin The Dude, Luenell, among others. He has even been featured on mixtape projects with Wyclef Jean and Lil Jon. Through these significant projects, he made a breakthrough in his career with music media giants MTV and VH1 featuring some of his works. Eliot Ness shared that his music is unique as it speaks and touches on the reality of life. It mirrors the collective experiences of the people he grew around with as they go through different stages in life. He boasts that it is as authentic as it can be for him and his audience. “A true to me real hustle music,” to quote his expression.
So far, Eliot, as a rising artist, has transcended his ideology of hard work, perseverance, and the spirit of the hustle into his projects. On the sides, he has also been busy with campaigns to raise health awareness in struggling communities. Issues surrounding congenital heart disease and lupus are most closest to his advocacies.
As an artist, Eliot wants his sound to reach out to people in the entertainment and music industries. He also wants to tap on blog sites for people as young as 18 and adults nearing the 50s. He mutually identifies with this age group and believes that his songs would cater to their liking as these are relatable tunes for them.His songs, “Small Time GMix ” and “Fast Lane,” both now available on Spotify and Youtube. See also his single “Peep Tha Game” featuring Freeway Ricky Ross, J Dawg and OG Ant. The song is part of the album, I’m Me Pt. 1. He also released a new single, “Mary Jane” that he dropped in June. “Mary Jane” is not a part of the album and is available on YouTube and Spotify.
