Born October 18, 1988 and raised in L-Town, which is on the Westside of The Windy City. Growing up in a single parent home, (raised by adopted father) is where he learned many life lessons both about being a man, and living a blessed life. Chicago native known as Elite aka Tha Young Messiah aka LeClaire, bka , & G$, but born as Giorgio Smith, overcame many challanges that was placed before him @ such a very young age. He grew up not letting anything stand in the way of or stop him from doing anything that he wanted to accomplish or achieve. At such the early age of 5, watching his father along with his godbrother play the drums and direct the choir at church, is when he first fell in love with just music itself. Very shortly after that, he started to show more interest around the house in music by beating on his grandmother's pots and pans, inmataiting his farther. Joining the Jr. Choir at his church around the age of 8 or 9 maybe, he found out that he really loved music but, singing wouldn't just get it with him. So around the time he went into the 6th grade, is when he discovered his talent of rapping and writing songs. He knew he was very well blessed and talented at doing it at that time, but he really didn't recognize until about the 7th or 8th grade, rapping with his cousin/mentor Dom'Perignom, that he shouldn't take his talent lightly and to do something with it. So soon after that, he started to really open up his ears and listen to the lyrics and words of many of the greatest entertainers alive, and also his influences to spark him up to start seriously writing more. At the young age of 15, he was taking in under the wing of ONE LIFE'S C.E.O. JOE 4 and guided by and also hit wit knowledge of ONE LIFE'S President/WELL KNOWN artist, Major League. Which brings us to this day, he has releashed his first mixtape titled, "Doubt Me Now Mixtape", and is working on his 1st album titled "Tha Genesis" and also, his second hardcore hitting but very knowledgeable and truthful mixtape that is not yet titled.
