Biography

After a few twists and turns in his 10-year underground career Elyops is now is ready to get behind the wheel and take this hip hop game on a good old fashion joyride!!! Elyops is a little bit rapper / story teller / philosopher/ bullshit artist. After graduating from UCLA with a BS in Mathematics in 1998, Elyops and his former Bay Area crew put out their first nationally distributed album titled “Paper Or Plastic”. These rhyme sayers drew comparisons to early KMD and De La Soul Records. The single “Professional Dookie Ripper” got spins from Sway to Bobitto. Shit was ‘bout to pop.

In the middle of recording the follow up album Elyops was involved in a fatal automobile accident that left him confined to a wheel chair for eight months. During this time he wrote his first solo and surprisingly up beat album titled “Public Restrooms”. Admitingly he would introduce himself with the line”Half of my appeal is the way I appall, half the way I keep it real is by keeping it raw”.

In 2001 his crew came back with the everyman hustle anthem “Worldbeaters”. The single reached #7 on Rapattacklives, #15 on Insomniac, and #11 on the Pipeline underground hip-hop charts. The second album, mainly produced by Ops, “Youthful Indiscretion” was completed and distributed through TRC in the middle of 2002 with another well received 12” “Machine b/w Room Packin Vibes” promoting the album on college radio. Unfortuanatly the album didn't do much outside The Bay. In 2004 he started his production team Break Ya Neck Music.

In 2005, relocated to Los Angeles, Elyops would put his second solo album together titled The Ops LP. This album would exemplify his faith, persistence, patience and continual development resulting in a listening for the ages. As a good hip hop record should have a fair amount of shit talking, a little inspirational food for thought is always appreciated and Elyops would suggest to those in the middle of rougher times to “Put the focus on the mission and the mission in perspective, then make the adjustments that’s going to be the most effective”.

Focused now on Break Ya Neck Music you can expect to here the original sounds of Elyops poppin up on your favorite mix CD soon.

Lyrics

Good comes the Bad

Written By: Elyops

I'm on a road trip, no script, just adlibbing my living
Lately I've been re-thinking about how every decision
I've been making in the past has been shaping my ass
And how life aint all about running around chasing the cat
There's a meaning, a purpose and that's my reason to resurface
So I take a deep breath, breathe in the earth
They say we reap what we sow, I'm trying to make some alterations
Cuz I'm tired of the unnecessary altercations
These distractions are impairing got me almost not caring
Adding extra wear and tear to the load I'm already bearing
And I want to take advantage of the time I manage
And every op that pops we only get so many chances
Dealing with my shortcomings is long overdue
Like the sun finally rising, has it ever dawned to you?
That we get out what we give in
Create the world we live in
We either active or we passive
drafting or drifting, rejuvinting my passion and enhancing my vision because before I have to cash in it’s only right that I chip in and leave something everlasting for everybody to grow with, you can take it or leave it but that’s my motive.

With the good comes the bad
With the pretty comes the ugly
You can hug me or shrug me
Either way it doesn’t bug me
Yesterday I wasn’t happy but today I feel lucky

i started rappin in 78. i was born in 79
what's that tell ya, yeah i'm ahead of my time
but fuck the riddles man, i'm still in the under and i'm still on the hunt cuz i still got the hunger
one way or another when you hear the thunder
better grab an embrella , i'mma do one hell of a number
and that aint no metaphorical speech,
but this is...you'll never catch me sporting a corporate leash
i'm no ones pet and you pose no threat
i've come as close to death as close can get
so dont sweat this vet or catch the direct effect
and i aint talkin bout the mtv set reject
i'm hard to detect i shake the radar
i change my profile every other 8 bars
so dont overunderesimate before you investigate
that'll lead to a difficult situation to resesatate
man get on your grind and get out of mine
thats the only shot we got if were all bound to shine
and right about now it's about that time

Before I’m convicted or commited I’mma try to come with it
and if the latter don’t happen I hope that yall will come visit
I gave my best I guess they didn’t like what I submitted
So I’m compressing the rest of my life into one minute
Were all in search of an answer that aint a question
The enemy is time, time is also a blessin
Sometimes time is just a matter of the time spent stressing
And makes as much sence as second guessin a first impression
But I’ aint going anywhere anytime soon
And don’t trip if you catch me howlin at the moon
I hanvn't lost my mind, I just do random things at the drop of a dime and watch the drama that it brings
I used to think too much, drink for a crutch
Then I walked with a cane after my neck got crushed
But I didn’t die, our boy Damien did
So I’m speaking for him when you hear me saying this shit
You can get angry and pissed when lifes a pain and a bitch
Your other option is death so quit complaining and switch.......
otherwise realize this..

THE WURLD Z YURZ
TAKE THAT SHIT
WHAT THE FUCK YOU WAITIN FOR
TAKE THAT SHIT
YOU EITHER WANT IT OR YOU DON'T
YOU CAN'T FAKE THAT SHIT
WHAT, YOU GOT SOME OTHER PLANS?
BREAK THAT SHIT

Interrogating debating whether your worthy of integrating into the new scheme of things
evaluating your performance, validating your importance
in accordance before your thrown back into the land of orphans
where the portions keep getting smaller, fighting over the same crumb, numb to the color of your collar
reverting to our primal instinct of survival any day we're all liable of becoming homicidal
but for you the horns blowin, get that ass in motion
punch in punch out 'til you grasp the notion
that your networth on planet earth is defined by the time that you're clocked on the network
the same interface, each day immitates each day give or take overtime, over time each day eliminates some potential for true satisfaction in exchange with another bad reaction
that don't interst me to live and breathe that imagery
guess I'm a different breed, Fuck your corrupt industry
I paid my dues so I could break the rules and I aint sellin no sympathy


THE WURLD Z YURZ
TAKE THAT SHIT
WHAT THE FUCK YOU WAITIN FOR
TAKE THAT SHIT
YOU EITHER WANT IT OR YOU DON'T
YOU CAN'T FAKE THAT SHIT
WHAT, YOU GOT SOME OTHER PLANS?
BREAK THAT SHIT

While the somber slumber and while those that ponder wonder, while the stronger conquer and let the weaker hunger longer, I waunder under my own haze of insensativity, circumvent expectations for mental health longevity. While every episode I enter I'm a part-time member after the season finally it's back to the dilly-dally so please dson't remind me, I'm already cautious, life's made of temporary gains that end in permanent loses. Is it my fault that you want more than I can give and Tailor to your satisfaction like my name was Liz, gee wiz your beef is my pay wage is terrible, yeah I might be broke now but I'm not unrepearable. I got the know how, chillin at the coral, everything is OK, we're keeping up the moral.
