Earlier this year we interviewed producer Elite about his contributions to J. Cole's Born Sinner. He co-produced on three tracks, the most significant being Cole's latest single "Crooked Smile" which climbed to no. 27 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Despite his successes, Elite continues to be heavily slept-on behind the scenes. His new mini-documentary All In a Day's Work should bring some nice exposure to the 30-year-old producer, who chronicles his production with J. Cole, as well as what he's been working on with his new artist Sean McVerry.
J. Cole also appears in the documentary and praises Elite for his exceptional work in the studio. "I think one of the things that separates [Elite] is he went to school for this shit," J. Cole says. "You can hear he has a sonic quality about his music that you can tell is because he's a professional. He can verbalize his shit and speak a production language that a lot of people can't speak."
Elite is currently at work on his sophomore mixtape Level Up, which will be released November 5.
