Interview by: Martin Bauman To say things have gone well for Elite this year would be an understatement. The Dreamville producer/emcee moved from Byram, Connecticut to Brooklyn, co-produced four tracks on J. Cole's highly-successful Born Sinner album (including the Gold-selling "Crooked Smile"), and just released his latest project, the aptly-titled Level Up. The free release tells the story of Elite's past year, moving from a small town to Brooklyn and experiencing all that comes with it. We caught up with Elite to talk about his latest project, working with J. Cole on Born Sinner, the importance of humility, and much more. Read the full interview after the jump.
