Eliturite on Shockoe Sessions Live!Visit Website
Eliturite is the rap alias of a man who lives in Richmond, VA. At 15, he gave himself this alias after noticing that 'illiterate' could be pronounced the same, even after he added the 'eli' from the beginning of his own name. This made him laugh because it's a pun with his name, but the Chef's-Kiss was that now the word 'illiterate' was spelled incorrectly. Making the name 'eliturite' even funnier to him. He made music. Then stopped. But he wanted to come back.
He co-founded HearRVA in 2020, which was always meant to help Richmond musicians, but the passion for digging into Richmond's music scene came from eliturite trying to find out where he belonged. His first album in 10 years, 'after wake' debuts April 21st, 2023 on Vintage Youth records
