E Jake or Eazy, as he is commonly known as, is what Hip-Hop has been looking for in an artist. While the phrase “keep it 100” is often used by nearly everyone in the streets, ain’t it true that the majority don’t? Well Eazy doesn’t have that problem; he is genuine to himself & others, both in and outside the booth. Born in Boston, raised in Framingham, this young, Black, talented MC has seen both sides of the fence; where opportunity and struggle meet.
Rapping since age 10, he’s always had an ear for music, growing up listening to the classic soul greats including Al Green, Curtis Mayfield & The Temptations to the sounds of Wu-Tang, Nas & Jay-Z. He became serious about pursuing a music career after serving nearly three years in a juvenile detention center. Once home he began community college for Business Administration and formed the Massachusetts based independent entertainment company, Power House Movement LLC, with fellow childhood friends.
Legal trouble didn’t stop there and it forced Eazy to take a step back from his grind & rising status as he did more time in the cell than the booth. During his last bid he decided to drop his old stage name of Menace Moore, and take on his current & final stage name, E Jake; short for his government name, Elijah Jacobs.
Once released from incarceration in 2012, he began releasing many songs and music videos gaining a wide variety of attention from fans, supporters, major record label executives, and of course fellow competition. Along with touring and frequent live performances, E Jake and fellow PHM LLC members have since moved onto to open their own recording and production studio, 3 Stripe Studios, LLC.
The grind never stops, the only addiction E seems to have is the rush and need of success. Taken from E Jake himself he once stated, “I fell in love with the grind, because its like once you reach your goal what’s next? So I keep working… Never losing sight of my inspiration while constantly feeding my ambition.” So what lays ahead for this young, aspiring sensation? Only time will reveal the answers, until then let’s sit back and analyze his moves and progression.
