They played and exposed Eli to music at an early age.
Eli would later return to Michigan at age 19. In fall 2016, Eli met Billboard-charting producer Arjun Singh and began to start taking music more serious. Together they would work to produce many records, including the singles “Small Talk” and “CICI”.

After being released, Eli touched down in Los Angeles, where he became a member of Savage Squad Records. He then re-released CICI garnering notable attention of many.
