Inspired by the lyrical prowess of KRS-1 and the social conscious attitude of Public Enemy, Darren Ellison a.k.a Elite has emerged with an unbridled passion for performing and entertaining heads with the poetry of hip-hop. Hailing from Athens , GA Elite is primed to be another level in the ever escalating sky rise of southern rap music

In 1999 Elite began perfecting his craft in musical production, and with the aid of his former stage crew the “Runaway Slave Click”, attained a production deal with Boot Camp Records ( Atlanta GA ). Three months later, track rippin and rhyme spittin brought Elite his first opportunity at a solo venture. Elite began recording solo material with another independent label known as Wash 1 Records. In mid 2000 Elite collaborated with a former “Runaway Slave” on two independent compilation releases, “High-Fidelity Complexication” and “Crown Royal”. Both albums helped establish the Showstoppa as an unmatched talent in his home city of Athens . In 2002 Elite began collaborating with up and coming hitmaker King Midas to began work on a collection of new records that would change hiphop. The resulting product is the 2006 release: King Midas presents "I Got Next" Vol. 1.

Elite is currently on tour promoting the project's EP and a soon to be released LP. "Liquor", the first single from the IGN compilaition, showcases a more relaxed party side to the vocally agressive rhyme sayer.

With a strong passion for live entertainment, Elite has earned his title as “Showstopper". His performances in local nightclubs, at special social events, and other community showcases, have helped hone his skill behind the microphone as well as onstage. His character is high energy and with no focus or boundaries. His views, opinions, and various talents, constitute an image without category.
