[Interview] Elcee talks “LeoSoul,” success, and personal growth

Elcee Interview on The Come Up Show

Interview by: Eternity Martis

When I first meet LaShawn Powell, also known by his stage name, Elcee, the first thing I notice is how surprisingly down-to-earth he is. I’d say I agree with rapper Earl Sweatshirt when he boils it down to Toronto rappers being “grandma nice”, but that couldn’t be the case. Born in Nova Scotia, and raised between Windsor and Toronto, Elcee’s graciousness is not a symptom of too-nice carebear T.O rappers, nor a facade- it’s an admirable, innate characteristic.

Elcee has been recoding music for the past few years, but it wasn’t until the release of his #SoundCloudSundays series that a true, dedicated artist was born. And what makes an artist true? One that has the courage to be forthright about his experiences, and has the desire to inspire the same bravery in others. He mixes Hip-Hop with R&B, Rap, and beats ranging from dreamy to bass-thumping, all without needing to justify or label himself.

Articulate, well-spoken, and composed, Elcee is careful about what he says and how he says it. He understands the fine line between narcissism and confidence, and that no success comes without struggle.

I sat down with Elcee to discuss music, success, and personal growth, as well as his upcoming project, LeoSoul, produced by Bonham and set to drop July 23rd.

It’s a summertime thing. Summertime vibes, summertime flings. Every year, there’s always a new jam for the summer. It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. The weather is nice, everything looks beautiful. Taking in the weather and festivities, Quake Matthews releases “Summertime Win” produced by Cory LeRue, featuring Dylan Guthro. Right off the bat you can feel the vibes, and I know I can relate to this one. It’s exactly how I feel in the summertime. While Quake is busy getting ready to release a new album, take in “Summertime Win” and play this at your next gathering. It’s sure to have the place filled with good vibes.

[Video] Kehmak x Del Reze x Casper The Ghost – “Call It Out” (Dir: Ender)

call it out

This one right here. Screams unity. Like many other cities, there’s always animosity between different hip-hop circles. After all, hip-hop wouldn’t be entirely what it is without the competition. Though in today’s day and age, we compete on a much larger scale, other than our own geographical location. Five years ago, you probably wouldn’t of seen this happen, though the progression Londons hip-hop scene has seen over those five years is amazing. Streetscape and Treetop team up for the banger of the summer, “Call It Out”. Shot by Ender, and edited by Del Reze. All filmed and edited in one day! Produced by Quince, the flow these three demonstrate on this timeless London track shows you London has a slew of undiscovered talent. Having the opportunity to sit in on this studio session and witness this one come together was a blessing. I’m proud of both teams. Take a dive into the heart of the city, where hip-hop thrives and tell me you can’t mess with this one.

[Video] Dizzle K ft. Casper The Ghost – “Everything’s Okay” (Dir: Edward “40oz” Rissling)

The first official video off #LOUD , slated to be released in the near future, Dizzle K links up with London’s own, Casper The Ghost; as they head out on a mission. Filmed by Edward “40oz” Rissling. Unleashing some heat, this Johnny Juliano production compliments the aggressiveness both these artist’s bring. Giving no mind to the negativity, cause everything is all good. We’re happy to premiere this first visual. Take it in below.

[Video] Redman- “N**** Whut” (Dir. Unknow)

Redman-Nigga-Whut

The Funk Doctor gives his fans this grimy black and white music video for his latest track, “N***a Whut. What I love about Redman is that he has never been one to rely on gimmicks- this video is just Redman dropping classic bars on the block. Fans have a lot to look forward to, as Redman has confirmed that the follow up to his classic album, Muddy Waters, is near completion. If that wasn’t enough, there have also been talks of a Red & Meth Black out 3! project in the works. While you anxiously wait for these projetcts to drop, take in Red’s latest video, “N**** Whut,” you won’t be disappointed.
