It’s been years in the making.
Up-and-coming hip hop artist Eleji is celebrating the release of his debut studio album, Pray Tomorrow Never Comes, with a headline show in Melbourne.
The journey to completing Pray Tomorrow Never Comes was a tumultuous one, taking five years altogether. The musician was spending every day either working as a busboy or in the studio recording the LP. In the process, he also founded his own independent record label and shared a recording studio with Bliss N Eso.
On the night, Eleji will perform alongside a live band and will be supported by Newcastle act Talakai, Dexter Seamus, New Wave Infinity and more.
“It’s crazy to think I used to just be a kid, a fan of this culture, and now, after 25 years on this earth, I’m in the middle of it all,” Eleji said in an interview with Beat.
Eleji brings Pray Tomorrow Never Comes to The Workers Club on Friday December 20. Tickets are on sale now via Oztix.
